Another stalled project brought back to life. Most of the mini stocks I've seen run 4 lugged wheels; I couldn't find any suitable wheels.  During the last couple of weeks the least of my worries is having the correct wheels on a model, plus I have found pictures of minis running 5 lug wheels.

I was taken with the looks of this mini stock :

My version is painted Testor's Go Mango.  Wheels are from an MPC stock car, mounted on the kit's tires.  The engine was converted to a carb induction and wired.  The roll bar is from an MPC Firebird or Camaro, the seat is from the Revell 1990 Mustang dragster.  The steering wheel and fire extinguisher are parts box items.

Thanks for looking!

Daytonas had four lugs in 1984-5. In 1986 they gained five lugs. I owned a 1986......great car. I'd love to have another.

This one is almost done - interior installed and up on all 4 wheels.  Just needs the front fascia, decals, and minor touchup - next stop the completed area.20200501_193638.jpg.ef22b788009110461fb28a521ddad5aa.jpg20200501_193645.jpg.5e4699c476549cc0c896b69b0064bafe.jpg

Nice and interesting project Keith!  This is a very cool build and you can't go wrong with this little Dodge painted in Go-Mango!
