Nice job on the car. My one question would the Monogram kit being 1/24th and the Lindberg kit being 1/25th show the difference of the downsizing the real car had or are the kits the same size?

Not sure I used the Lindberg kit because it was more stock. As far as the real car being downsized I believe that was a myth.

The restored (or replica) is in the Museum of Speed at Daytona International Speedway.  Per the write-up with the car, the car was narrower than the stock body, and the windshield was laid back which made the roof significantly lower and smaller than the stock body
