Pro Stock Fun

Taking inspiration from dragcarz and his awesome Shirley Shahan AMC Pro Stock Hornet, I built this during the Chili Bowl Nationals.  I used the MPC Pro Stock Series Vega chassis and interior.  The Gremlin body and engine are from the AMT kit.  This required surprisingly little surgery on the chassis.  Most of the work was done behind the rear axle centerline.  The interior required the most work shortening the tub 10" between the driver seat and wheel tubs.  The Gremlin dash required a little work to fit the Vega tub, but everything else worked rather easily.  Even the Vega side windows fit with no alterations!  I do have a few detail items to finish up, but happy with the result.  This has me thinking about a Bob Glidden Plymouth Arrow.

Jeff I have also found that the Vega parts fit very nicely under other short wheel base bodies. I have two Sox & Martian projects started using the Vega as a donor kit

Wow, are you building a Colt?

No colt yet. I’m working on the 1978 dodge challenger starting with a 3-d printed body from a e-bay seller. This is my first attempt at a 3-d so far I’m finding the plastic on the hard and brittle side. After cutting off the mirrors I won’t be opening up the hood. The second project is the 1979 Omni starting out with a monogram charger snap kit

As the owner of an Ex Pro Stock Colt race car, this thread caught my eye. It would be cool to see your projects on Mopar Pro Stocks. Here is my Colt at Indy in 1980 and the second picture is an Alderman Pro Stock Daytona I built 20 years ago. Darrell signed the roof.
