here's the second 40 for our club build, an injected Hemi gasser.

I modified the 40 chassis for the Willys front axle, hemi and headers and 32 rear axle

I sanded the doors and added a roll and tuck pattern, glued the front end for a 1 piece.

I recessed the firewall and put in a trans tunnel from an S-10.

the bed is from the AMT Willys.

Thanks Guys,

I'm really partial to older drag cars so I knew I had to build this one.

Thanks, guys, the tires are copies of parts box pieces. If I only have a couple of a given tire, I make resin copies of them, then I don't have to rob expensive kits for tires.
