    green t bucket

    thanks to all who commented the scoops came from the amt 65 imperial,sorry not many of those around anymore and if you find one i'ts an arm and a leg for it,seams like somebody makes some resin ones?

    green t bucket

    thanks to all for the comments.mark the headers are from mpc's fire truck,i cut them apart so i could fit them to the nailhead added the mufflers and flanges.screwed up on the bolt pattern should be just the opposite of what i've got but it was too far along by the time i noticed it,oh well
  4. another t street rod,what can i say? I like street rods.amt body with shortened pickup bed amt frame modified here and there.nailhead from revell model A made a dual quad manifold so I could finally use the cal custom scoops I've been hanging onto for 50+ years added some details to the block casting old revell parts pak radiator and grill shell radiator was widened for better cooling wired and plumbed.Was going for the look of aT built maybe in the seventies then upgraded over the years,the questions and comments welcome.

    eric,I can't remember exactly I think they were in the original amt cobra I just made the rears deeper rear tires are from revell sprint car fronts from revell's 37 low rider?
  13. been a long time since my last post,I'm slow.this is the amt kit I wanted something like to tognotti's but with a little more power.I wanted a stock length hood so I had to set the engine back.I did not want the tires hanging out too much so I widened the back fenders and narrowed the rear end.I put it on air bags so it could be raised to a driveable hight,small block chev from revell, 9"ford rear from amt,added fuel,brake,air and oil lines tried to wire most everything,a lot of scratch built parts motor mounts,suspension mounts etc.many hours.Paint is duplicolor,chrom is airbrushed molotow ho
  14. jim the rear tires are revell pro street
  15. This is something I wanted to do since I first saw Ray Fahner's wake wagon,1970?so it's a tribute I guess.started with amt raiders coach,narrowed,shortened,built doors,filled windows,made new windows,set on a revell t frame that was extended front and rear.Everything else is pretty much scratch built,engine is small block ford from revell(detailed)trans is aod also from revell,nine inch ford from amt nascar(modified),this is all plastic with the exception of the grill.questions and comments welcome thanks for looking johnz
