Here is a project ive been working on for a while. Using the Gremlin X kit, and the 1933 Willys Gasser kit as the main donors. The main idea was a wild chromed out gasser show car. Something from the late 70's early 80's show car circuit. Name = Gizmo Color Scheme = Bright Green with Purple Windows and Accents, Chrome Everything Interior = Metal Flake Silver Vinyl with Diamond Pleats Engine = Early 392 Hemi with Hilborn Injection Overall Look = Wild. Here is the progess so far: First thing was to lop off the factory front end and make some new frame rails. I made these the correct width to accept the Willys front axle and springs. Rough Suspension Mockup Check the stance and fit of the hemi Removal of pesky fuel tank, and chassis smoothing. Suspension Mounts and new wheels and tires from Comp Resins. Switch out from the funky willys rear end to the 9" out of the AMT 62 Thunderbird Scratch built some ladder bars, and finished up the chassis mounts. (still need shocks and steering linkage)
