Hey guys. Figured I would show you what I'm Currently working on. It's a kit bash of a 1965 Chevy race car hauler. Have had the two kits for a while just sitting in the closet and one day I had the idea of combining the two together and some parts boxes to do it. Let me know what what you guys think and also open to ideas as well. kind of " wingin " it. Debating if I want to run one ton suspension and a dual rear tire axle on the back or not

The two kits i'm using are Revell Monogram 1965 Chevy stepside kit # 85-7249

Here's a few pictures of what I got done so far. Bare with the crappy camera, still trying to figure it out not to mention it was a cloudy day

cut the rear frame of the 65 pick up and re worked it but still have to add some frame rails so it will be a full frame

I don't know if I'd go with a white interior on a work truck. It'll get dirty real quick. I like what you're doing, though.

I never gave that a thought of it getting dirty. Maybe ill run a aluminum or flat black carrier on it. I have a 51 Chevy straight axle gasser i built years ago to go on it

I like it, (IMO) I would go with the duel wheels it will give it that beefy look especially since it's going to be hauling a race car, looking forward to more!! :D
