The chassis, front and back glass is from a salvaged amt 65 gto. The Z-11 427 engine is from the amt 62 super stock bel air along with the front and back wheels. The pie crust slicks are amt parts pack. The dash, steering wheel, tac, and shifter came from amt’s 1965 Elcamino. The roll bar is made from 0.80 styrene rod. 
It would be really nice to see this produced as a amt kit aside from the body all the parts are amt. which was a amt body originally. This is a great match race car from a time Chevy driver’s we’re stuck with a out dated big block, to do battle with the hemi mopars , and hi reving 427 ford fe motors. Malcolm Durham was one of the true early heroes of drag racing a Chevy man to the end. 87C2D8E4-EDF5-4112-8B76-553FBA7D6D85.thumb.jpeg.338b88b7f1d6527dc062b1a6ac15d7dc.jpegF694AD28-DA26-403E-97E2-EF7A9BE159B4.thumb.jpeg.4fc7fb8b9988a606399095febec1f75a.jpeg1BD44035-2BAD-4C38-968C-9FCBB3A7A2D2.thumb.jpeg.0731373bf9c5b0617a7ff49c6b2ec9a8.jpegC6F1EEDE-43B9-47E3-A7EE-16F37C882C60.thumb.jpeg.b0e5f550848f0cf6a633895ab195e139.jpegBF203719-D4F5-4D87-8682-A78267EADF51.thumb.jpeg.20f51725ba89704f32f6261d5d070784.jpeg9A759599-E741-49B4-8F86-2CCD14B94B5A.thumb.jpeg.521616db5d846b46ce6f1c5295461658.jpeg

Another very cool pre-AWB super stocker of a legendary drag racer! I would love to see your entire BTC collection lined up, photographed and posted someday.

Where did you find these decals? Old Fred Cady?

The decals came with the resin body from mcw paint and resins. I would like to do a book some time. I have a lot more to do. Thanks for all your nice feedback
