This started out as a normal kit build.

I was then visiting a friend and we were testing out different wheels on it. I decided to go the complete opposite with this one and started cutting. I've already got the cowl hood from psf hobbies but it needs some tweaking to fit properly.

I need to section the removed area and use some styrene sheet to fill in the wheel tubs. Then I'll be building a 4 link for the rear. I think I can get away without any rear fender modification.

If you want to do less work try using revells 67 chevelle malibu pro street

chasis or back half on the monte chasis already has a 4 link. 67 malibu was the maxx rat.

Well, I don't know that I'll get another kit just to steal the 4 link.

YES! :)

I still love the look of these old Montes, and your bracket racer treatment works very well. Keep us posted on progress, please.
