    Very nice Mustang! Not many models of  that vintage around. Good work!

    David and Jay, I'm using the stock Corvair engine with 4 carbs in its stock position (not mid-engine). I added plug wires. Carl, - stock taillights, too, but I might paint the rear panel where the lights and license plate are black or silver. Paint update: I just sprayed on a coat of Krylon pumpkin orange. Looks good so far, although it's a lighter shade than I used before. Thanks for your interest guys!

    I used this custom nose piece I had from an old Corvair kit from the 1960's.

    Custom Corvair
    I found photos of a customized Corvair that I liked and decided to make something like it, but keeping the rear engine. The real one has a front-mounted V8. I got a Corvair kit from eBay and modified the body by enlarging the wheel openings and making fender flares from styrene sheet. I painted it orange, but the spray can nozzle kept clogging up and the paint came out looking more like orange snot than paint! After a day in the purple pond, it's ready to try again with different orange paint. I lowered the suspension a little and replaced those 13" wheels with some larger ones from my parts boxes, and added a nose from an old Corvair kit. Comments and ideas are welcome!
     
    Here's my inspiration.

    Very nice! The hood straps are a nice touch. The OD color is cool!

    That is a really well done model! Great details on the chassis and under the hood! Superb work! I did one similar a while back,  converting the hardtop into a base sedan sleeper with a 413, but yours is much nicer!

    I picked up a Dodge L-700 tilt cab at the State College, PA Ollie's. I'm not sure what I'll do with it, since I'm not a truck modeler, but for $7.99 I couldn't resist!

    Great save! The colors are cool - very mid-50's!

    Very nice! Cool color, and I like the six. That kit should have come with a six. I built one a while back and installed a Ken Kitchen 6-banger in mine. Nice work on this one!
