the FEROCIOUS Fiat - A 60's Altered!

This Fiat Altered was built as part of a community project on a Facebook group for drag racing. It started life as the veneriable Double Dragster kit with some personal touches added. I really enjoyed this one, the DD kit is just too much fun!

- Small Block Chevy engine from the FED in the Double Dragster kit.

- B&M Hydro transmission and shifter linkage from Revell's parts pack 283 Chevy.

- Finned timing cover, valve covers and oil pan from AMT's parts pack 283 Chevy.

- Scratchbuilt injector pipes, fuel block and fuel hose added to Double Dragster's otherwise boring Hilborn fuel injection.

- Kit magneto wired.

- Cut the kit header tubes off their flanges and made new header tubes from styrene tubing so they're not only free of mold lines and beefier, they're actually round too!

- Gauge face decals and photo-etched bezels added to gauge bracket on steering mount.

- Modelhaus T110 front tires and vintage AMT Firestone slicks.

- Tamiya "Mica Silver' with a mixture of Double Dragster decals.

Nice! And I like how you went with the pressurized fuel tank. I did that on two of my vintage drag builds. Great job!!
