I posted this long ago but Photobucket decided my photos had to go. I’ve taken some new photos to reintroduce her to the world of today. I watched cars similar to this one race at Kingsport Speedway back in the seventies when I was a teenager. I combined the modified stocker body and a Monogram NASCAR chassis to replicate a mid-seventy Late Model Sportsman NASCAR racer. I used Testors and Model Master paints and decals that I scrounged up from other kits. It was a fun build and it turned out better than I had hoped it would. I think it’s a keeper.

Just losing the steamroller tires helps the look. But using the NASCAR chassis really brings this build to life. Very nice build.  I have one of these in my stash, may have to rethink what I am going to do with it.

Fantastic build!  I am thinking of trying this.  Which Monogram chassis did you use?

Thanks big guy. 🙂 I used the chassis from the Monogram Tim Richmond Folger’s Monte Carlo SS. Kit # 2734. I had to modify the cal and dash, along with some other small areas, to get it to all work together. It was nothing too hard or difficult to pull off. Good luck with your build. I hope I get to see it when you finish it.
