OK FOLKS, ARE YOU READY FOR THIS ONE?? STARTING LIFE AS A STOCK MONOGRAM 1/12 SCALE 57 CHEVY FUELIE, IVE METICULOUSLY CONVERTED TO A WICKED STREET GASSER! PICTURES DO NOT DO ANY JUSTICE WHATSOEVER THE FINISH AND CUSTOM AIRBRUSH WORK ON THIS NASTY MACHINE. REAL FLAME PAINT WORK COVER THIS MEAN 57 FROM FRONT TO BACK, AND LIKE I SAID, PICS DO NOT DO THE PAINT WORK JUSTICE. SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE JUST STEPPED STRAIGHT OUT OF HADIES HERSELF, A TRUE DEVILS RIDE. JET BLACK PAINT WAS POLISHED TO A REAL CAR - HIGH GLOSS LUSTURE. A FEW OTHER KITS CONTRIBUTED TO THE BUILDING OF THIS 57, AND ALOT WAS ALSO CUSTOM-HAND BUILT. INTAKE AND INJECTION SYSTEM, TRACTION BARS, MOON TANK, AND ENTIRE STRAIGHT AXLE FRONT END WAS SCRATCH-BUILT BY HAND. EVEN THE SHOCKS WERE HAND MADE! HEADERS THAT SHOOT OUT BETWEEN THE FRAMERAILS ARE MADE FROM SOLDER, CUSTOM BENT BY HAND. MOTOR IS FULLY WIRED INCLUDING PLUG WIRES AND ALL FUEL LINES. INTERIOR IS ALL STOCK EXCEPT FOR THE HAND-MADE VINTAGE STYLE "SUN"TACH AND 3 GUAGES ON THE BOTTOM OF THE DASH. ALL CHROME HAS BEEN BARE-METAL-FOILED AND ALL SEPERATE TRIM CAREFULLY APPLIED. CHECK OUT THE PICS AND DECIDE IF YOU WANT TO TRY TO TAME HER, SHE IS A WICKED MACHINE READY TO RUN. CAR MEASURES ALMOST 17" LONG AND STANDS HIGH LIKE A PERIOD CORRECT GASSER SHOULD. THERE IS A SMALL CRACK IN THE WINDSHIELD, BUT IT DOES NOT DETRACT FROM THE OVERALL LOOK, AND AT SOME ANGLES, ITS HARD TO SEE

SHE IS ON EBAY RIGHT NOW IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED, I HAVE NO WHERE TO KEEP IT.

AUCTION #270182397355

Front whitewalls are from the kit, but the rears are cut white vinyl stuck to the goodyear slick (the smooth side with no raised goodyear)

Wow!!!

That's a real winner. I hope the eBay bidders realize the value of what they're buying. That's museum quality.
