Built from this kit

Which also had custom parts for the George Barris hot rod version. Some of the customizing parts looked goofy or didn't fit very well, so I sourced some bits and such from the spares bins to make a modern pickup rod.

Mods as followed:

Independent front suspension made from Ferarri Enzo pieces and Monogram 1992 Corvette A arms 

Monogram 1992 Corvette also gave it's independent rear suspension + axle.

Wheels and tires are from a Revell Motor City Muscle '69 Shelby GT500. Disc brakes are from a Hummer H2

Kit's custom exhaust was lengthened at the end using pieces from Revell Shelby Series one

kit had a wooden style flat bed, or a bed that had seats going on it but no side pieces, which isn't street legal. An AMT 1953 Ford F150 pickup bed was used with a custom rear clear tailgate made using a Hummer H2 rear window cut down to fit

Exterior paint is Tamiya TS-58 Pearl Light Blue over Rustoluem Silver, cleared with Pledge.
