Are you using the stock JoHan chassis or something else?

Resin copy of the stock 75 chassis. I will be modifying the exhaust  system. I re drilled the axle holes and hacked a bunch out to clear the tires underneath. It’s no contest winner under there for sure.

If you want a good chassis to start from, use the chassis from the AMT 69 442/Hurst Olds. It fits well and is light years from the old Johan snap kit.

Plus, if you start from the Hurst, you'll already have the 455 engine.

Looks great Tim, I like doing a nice curbside from time to time. A full tilt detailed model sometimes is just too much. I never display models, diecast or otherwise with any panels open anyway.

Started some bare metal foil last night. Need to neaten some of it up a little.

I’m debating on slotting the bumper for exhaust tips. Have to see how gutsy I am. Got some more foil work done. Moving along slowly.

Hood don’t open anyway so curbsidevis fine by me. Just gonna sit on a shelf anyway.

Same here Tim....I love the curbside ones just as much as the full detailed kits...they all can be built into great looking models...just look at this one.   Our old 73 was the same as the one your building sure brings back good memories for me.

Did the lights last night. Got to make the bumper fit better in final assembly.

That is nice Tim. I like the second wheels better, even though I cringed when I was reading you changed them.

I didn’t even know the big Olds SSII wheels were made until after the other wheels were on it. I saw the Olds wheels and said”Now that is exactly the look I’m after .”
