1968 Issue AMT Double Dragster, built to match the twin engined rail on the side of the box. It has chrome reverse wheels from the AMT '34 Ford pickup on parts pack slicks on the rear and later issue decals, otherwise built from the box.

Really cool dragster, nice clean build. Looks like the box art, even to the improperly placed steering link - should be under the headers next to the frame.  The instructions also show it on top of the headers.

Yeah, I am no expert on these, I followed the instructions. Oddly enough, I have another one I built with a single small block and that one is right.

Maybe when you use the double engine set up it is the only way it will fit unless you modify it?

Very cool - I like them both.  I have four built and more planned.  Hard to say what it is about these models but the nostalgic factor is huge.  We all know that they are not the most accurate representation of a dragster of that era but there is something about them that you just can't ignore! Thanks for sharing yours!

Cheers

Alan
