Bobby’s Coke Machine

Recommended Posts

This is the latest issue Allison Monte. I built it like the car Bobby drove for Junior Johnson in 72. It has a amt TBird frt frame and truck arms added to the kits chassis. Modified the front to be like a 71 nose. This is how the real car was. Used the cage from the TBird as well with lots of mods. Scratchbuilt engine bars and air cleaner. Kit decals except for the trunk from a set from Mikes. PPP wheels and later AMT tires

Wow, great job. I just finished one that I had to convert back from stock to Nascar.

Thanks guys

Tim, where did you come up with the idea for that air cleaner? I've never seen one like that before. Do you have a pic you could share of the Allison engine bay?

It’s really not right but it is similar to what it looks like. Chevys had to get around the rear mount distributor. Do they used a cowl plenum like these.

Beautiful build from the days when they were a lot closer to stock.  Great work on the paint and decals!

I found a pic of Benny Parsons restored '73 Chevelle. I presume this is close to what you did.

Nice work! Got ant shots of the under side? Would love to see what you did!

Tom this is a different car but I’m doing the same chassis mods to it still need to do a cell on this one. For some reason this chassis had a stock tank molded in.
