This is awesome Ira ! You could scratch build some Boss 429 valve covers for that block (you have the talent) . Yes I am a ford guy. LOL

Good Idea! :)

I'm new to this post. wOw... that was brilliant Ira, to graft on those those side pieces! The result just looks "right." (saved a lot of work too, way to go.)

Thanks Roger!

Yeah, I had a choice to either put the fenders on the Ranchero or put the Ranchero on the fenders.

This way worked out pretty good!

Having seen a few of your other similar builds, I've been following this one from Day One. Now you've gone and done it! You've got me thinking about doing the same thing to a Corvair! The fenders from the same Camaro, same basic shortening treatment to the body (with a possible windshield chop as well, laving the roof stock height toward the back), a blown Zinger V-8 out back, etc, etc...

Thanks Lane!

I haven't decided on colors, any suggestions?

I'm not Lane but may I suggest any of the "Grabber" colors, I think this would look good in "Grabber Green"...

BTW Great Job!!!

I like this build. These style models stir a quirky sense of humor within us. Keep up the good job.

I'm not sure how much of the original Ranchero details will stay or return at this point... :huh:

On my limited budget, finding the Deal's Z-28 might be a problem. I'm tempted to just go ahead and rough it out with sheet stock and Bondo. I have plenty of AMT '69 Corvair bodies to play with, including more than a few damaged glue bombs ripe for the cutting.

I've seen the blown '64 Monza Spyder in the photo above online and have downloaded about half a dozen pics of the car for future reference. This car was my inspiration forone I'm building for the "Vintage Racing" (or whatever it's called) CBP. Nobody actually raced a car like that that I know of, but it definitely could have been done. Mine will be based on the '69 model, backdated to a '66, with a straight axle up front.

Looking forward to seeing your "69!

You should be able to do a Great job with plastic & putty.

I have found a few Deals Wheels "Builder" kits on Ebay for $10 to $15 including shipping...

I Finished the Body Work and appllied some White Primer.

After the Primer dried I sanded it Smooth and then applied a couple of coats of Testors Diamond Dust Lacquer!
