  1. This one has been on the shelf for several years,. I started considering a build out on the Shelby Cobra 427 S?C chassis, but that didn't pan out. Since I had it on the bench i decided to proceed out of the box. I've done a few mods .. the fram was lowered 2mm, and the body has been lowered on the frame by 4mm. That required removing 4mm from the interior tub height. All parts being used are straight from the kit except maybe the tires?

    I usually detest modern aftermarket wheels!

    Those aren't half bad. ^_^


    Nice job!







    Thanks! I used a Tamiya black line accent color wash on them to darken the chrome and fill the lines in the spokes.

  3. Thanks for all of your kind comments. This one was a fun build. The fit and finish was good on the kit. It is box stock other that being lowered a bit, some mid engine mods (carburetor, air cleaner and valve covers), and wheels/tires/brake rotors and calipers that think came from a Revell 67 Chevelle Street Burner kit.

    Nice touch on the dent. One thing I still notice when I visit flat rock and Toledo speedways is the cars usually have damage before the race. I remember when Arca still raced the top series at Flat rock the cars were battered from the previous night at Toledo's race. 



    Thanks all for your comments and feedback. Thus one has been fun. I didnt expect it to become a prototype. I’ve decided to add a 69 nova sportsman to my project list. Maybe a Butch Lindley replica. Watched him race many times at Huntsville Speedway, back in the day when allison, bonnet, waltrip, gant, ridley, farmer and many others would come to town and battle on our little 1/4 mile bull ring.
