65 Mustang Racer

Recommended Posts

Heres a project that I started about 10 yrs ago and I finally got motivated to finish it. It started as a stock AMT Mustang kit. I added fender flares from a Tamiya Supra race car, the front air dam part was all scratch built, molded in the rear roll pan and filled the whole back smooth as well as the coves in the sides of the car. The hood was stock that I molded in the tear drop scoop. The chassis is a modified nascar piece. Wheels and tires from an F1 car. Just need to get some small bolts for the wheels and it will be wrapped up. Hope you enjoy.

Reminds me of the Hoonigan Mustang.

Can I say freaking awesome and I bet you're glad it's almost done.  Projects like this can get stalled when so much has to be engineered along the way.  Make up some fake instructions and enter an IPMS box stock contest class and watch the looks on the judges faces.:D

BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH that's good Jeff. And yeah it does look like the Hoonigan Mustang but obviously you had the design idea in your head well before Ken Block did!!!! 🤗🤗🤗

Oops! Obviously the forum filter deleted and replaced my opening exclamation (large body of water behind wall) with blah blah blah. Sorry about that!!!

Very nice, I like to see race cars that never were, but could have been.  Well done.

Very nice! I've been wanting to build something in this vein for many years now. Maybe I"ll actually get to it someday.

Thanks everyone for the comments. I posted that right before I went on vacation and forgot about it once I got back. Just remembered I had done it so I came on and checked it. Thanks again.

Thanks guys! I actually just noticed something i left off of the car. I had made some little side skirt pieces to put on last that would tie the front and back fender flares together and totally forgot about them. Ill have to make a couple more and stick them on.
