So, there are these guys on youtube called roadkill, they do crazy things with old wrecks of cars, they did a car called the nascarlo, they took some old late model paved oval track race car and put a '70 chevy monte carlo body on it, they had to move the roof back for it to fit, and it looked prety cool and weird:

i know the monte carlo body that im going to get, but i dont know if there is a set smilar to the original car they used, something that i could use the chassis from, if not, it will be a bit difficult trying to make the chassis when i have hardly no experience.

does anyone know of a set like this, with the chassis, looks like the body is a chevrolet, or an immitation chevrolet atleast.

here is a link to the video for anyone who wants to watch it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUefSKCjP8w

 

i forgot to mention, the picture above isnt the final piece, its what they started with, this is the final car:maxresdefault.thumb.jpg.afe5c84b177d09e6

The Nascar body is a Monte Carlo...I would think any Nascar kit should work though, considering you're going to have to heavily modify the cage if you want to match the 1:1 closely.

Around here, you can't go to a flea market, automotive swap meet, or toy show and swing a cat without hitting one or more NASCAR kits priced in the single digits.  That said, the 1:1 dirt chassis looks sort of like a NASCAR one except the engine and roll cage are shifted to the rear.  Just swapping a stock body onto a NASCAR chassis, you probably wouldn't need to move the roof back like that, but just doing something like the body swap could make an interesting project.  There's pro street, pro-touring...why not NASCAR street?

If you can find one, this kit has the body and a fairly close chassis in it.

Thanks guys, i think i want to move the roof and front end back anyway to get it to look like the nascarlo, so i will probably have to find a nascar kit with a shorter wheel-base that the monte carlo.
