The Tomkat - '25T with a boat tail

Recommended Posts

This is based on the venerable AMT 1925 Model T chopped top coupe. The boat tail was created from a spare 1936 Ford hood and the chassis has been stretched to make room for the straight 8 from MPC's 1932 Chrysler.

That's pretty cool!  Love the idea of the straight 8, not the same old SBC.

A delightful surprise. I really like the chrome molding on the boat tail and how you carried through to the fenders and the body sides. It serves to unify what would have otherwise been a difficult transition. The whole thing comes together really well, especially in glossy black like that. Bravo!

I agree with Bernard. How refreshing!  You have done a lot of very cool stuff here. I like the center headlight and the chrome trim on the cycle fenders! Nice detail and workmanship .

Beautiful. Great idea for the Boat Tail look. The engine idea is very original. Those old engines were torque monsters.

Well that's different and therefore interesting. There's something about it that makes me think it would look right at home parked next to the Munster cars. Very cool!

Love it! This has got to be the most interesting version of the AMT T coupe I've seen someone build to date.

Wow!  A stunning Rod. What did you use for the Velocity Horns on the Carbs? They Don't look injection molded.

IIRC, the velocity stacks came from the 'three carb setup for the Lincoln engine in the '25 T kit. They are definitely a standard item from some AMT kit that I had handy.

Thanks for all the comments and compliments, everybody!
