Thanks for the kind words.  The build from the Moebius Arnie Beswick Comet kit.  The engine was taken from the Dyno Don Mercury Cyclone F/C kit with the Blower and blower hat from Calnaga Resin.  The chassis, fire wall  and dash were modified so the engine could be moved back to the interior.  The engine cover (dog house) was made from Evergreen Styrene.   The front suspension was taken from the AMT 55 Chevy Nomad kit.  Front tires are from Speed City Resin.   Front Wheels are from a Polar Lights F/C kit.  Rear Slicks are from the Revell Miss Deal F/C kit.  Rear Wheels are from Speed City Resin.  Paint is Tamiya Clear Red over Testors Pure Gold.  Decals are from PoleKat Decals.    Will be more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about the build.

The wheel base is spot on! Nice build! Not to be critical of other modelers that have built these kits, but I find the wheelbase of the standard kits to be a might off especially the front wheels. Looks too short. Anyone else feel that way?
