Any one know if the decals to do this car are avail ? I have this one on the short list as it looks like a pretty straightforward conversion with a Johan AMX body on a Borsch altered chassis /engine / running gear

I know I've seen it somewhere,,,,, but can't remember where to save my butt.

I've looked all over Slixx's website and found nuttin that even comes close.

I sent them an email , so only time will tell

I've been all thru Altered States, Slixx, Speedcity Resin, Whoppiecat, Special Appearence , Jack Smith decals and come up blank on them all

Any others ?

I am just going to use a Johan 1969 AMX body from a Shirley Shahan kit. I've already done a test fit on a Willie Borsch chassis and it's a near perfect fit.

The actual car was nothing but an altered under the AMX body

Here is an article I found

Its' my understanding this is the same car , just later in life under different ownership. But to be honest I am not 100% sure of this. There seems to be very little info on the car , other than it was handful to drive and went thru dozens of hired guns to drive the thing ( somewhat typical for an altered)

I don't think the green body is the same. Looking at the inner tins are different, and the blue one doesn't have a back window in it. Not sure if they are or not.

The green AMX is a completely different car. Ron Ellis was a midwest gas altered guy that later ran a Vega S.D. in BB/FC

The green car is the Ron Ellis BB/A (later run as a UDRA gas and alcohol funnycar) from Mich.

This car originally had a 'T' body and was the NHRA record holder in AA/A(called the TRICK T) around 1968-69.

Completely different cars.

I built this as one of my first major kit bashes when I got back into the hobby about 10 years ago.

I used the AMT Bantam Blast and the Model Master pro street AMX.
