Grumpy's Toy 1972 Vega Prostock

This a combo of a MPC 78 Monza coupe kit, a resin 72 Vega trans kit and the interior tub, chassis and wheels from a Mustang II Fire Fighter kit. The wheelie bars are scratch build with the kit supplied ones as a starting point. Red is DP Victory Red. White is DP Linen White. Decals are from Slixx. This represents a true icon in Prostock drag racing.

Yes the FF chassis worked great. I just had to cut the front cross member out and make a u shaped one to let me put the Chevy engine with the rear sump pan in.
