Quick and dirty slump-buster, until today it was well over a year since I finished anything. We have two shows coming up and I had this week off. I decided to see if I could knock out a quick curbside in about a week so I would have something to take with us. Got it finished up today and I can say it feels pretty good to finish something. Now to get one of those stalled projects completed.... Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki
Heres my latest project. 32 Vicky, stock top, channelled, rusted using the "salt method". Mill is a Chrysler 440 with 6 one barrel carbs. Wheels are stock "steelies" and center caps left over from my 68 charger build. All questions, comments and criticisms are welcome..... Enjoy!
So heres my new project. I started this while the paint was curing on my 68 Charger build, so no in progress stuff lol. Im using the stock "steelies" that came with the charger, along with the 440 that came with the charger as well. Im modding some of the engine parts that come with the Vicky to work on the 440. I plan on detailing the engine and interior, as well as weathering and channelling the body. Im going for a "previous hot rod turned rat rod" feel.... So ive already set my stance and channelled the body on the frame. Alot lol. It has a true rat feel, especially with the red wheels and pad stamped whitewalls that came with the Vicky. Ive also chopped the radiator and grill shell to match the lowered body. I was going to chop the top super low, but once i had the body channelled i just fell in love with the tall top on the channelled frame lol. The Vicky came with some decent chassis and brake detail parts like brake drums, full steering components, etc. Im going to use the rotors that came with the charger up front, and make some calipers for them I also plan on doing brake lines and fuel lines. If i have the patience that is lol. Ill post some pics of the chassis when i get a chance. For now.... Enjoy
