I stocked up on these kits back in the day thinking I'd convert them to NASCAR Boxy Fighter Matadors.....Then a resin body came out and I never converted one.....thankfully! I like that concept drawing.....gives me ideas!

Yes that is really cool. I like the Marlin roof. There’s a real nice resin Matador available now too. Robert Burns does it.

Love it!!!! As a owner of a 74 coupe I have heard that slogan just a few times!!!! Mine is not the 'Boxy' Matador but the NASCAR coupe.....

I'll stay OT now!!!!

I've done the NASCAR chassis swap before. It works terrificly but it does make the exhaust system problematic.

I like the wheel/tire combo.

This is a really great project! Love the stance and your wheel choice! Everything is coming along very nicely!

I love the stance and the wheels are perfect for this project!   I noticed your simulation of the OEM (The Machine) stripes on the trunk spoiler, are you planning to use them and paint the body white like the original car?

This is looking real good! I have a friend who is an AMC freak - it is a very special strain of our disease.....

Cheers

I really like what you are doing here, Tim! Built a few AMCs myself (a Pacer and a Gremlin) and I still got a sealed AMX kit. The Nascar chassis is a nice trick, I need to get me some of these kits for some resin projects... 👍

This is 2 chassis spliced together to get the wheelbase

The blue interior looks super. What type of intake are you using?
