Ain't Yer Monkee Bizness

Recommended Posts

ok, to start this off... this past weekend at our Kustom Kemps meet one of the members brought in a few stahled projects and told a handful of guys to go pick one out. As he said the only one condition on this is we HAVE to build it and finish it!!!!!!!! So with that in mind I picked this one and as he put it he knew I'd grab this one!!!! Think he knows me or something??

anyway, the base is a 66 Chevelle wagon with the Monkee Mobile front clip and lower rockers and wheel wells and tail panel added to the wagon body. I'll be using a 66 Chevelle wagon chassis and interior in it. Engine is more than likely going to be a blown Big Block Chevy!! Color, I'm leaning towards a darker metallic blue of some sort...... Maybe!!?? 

On to the pics!!!!!!

the work he did to the body work is kool, as he pointed out he matched the detail on the roof to match the  cut out of the front end detail. Look at the photo from top of car....

It lines up pretty good. Looking under the body shows how he cut and put it all together. My friend has a great eye for making something no matter what it is look "right"..... everything he builds is wicked kool!!!! 

Got the engine built last night.....

These are a few builds that Randy has done to give you an idea of the mind behind where this one came from!!!
