I remember seeing a picture of this kit in the ole Auto World (Scranton, PA) catalog as a kid. It's been a holy grail build for me and I finally finished it after a few fitful starts and stops. It's the AMT Piranha chassis and the AMT Studebaker 1953 Studebaker body. 

-Paint on the body is Testors One-Hit 'Extreme'' (or whatever name they were using when it was discontinued) Emerald Mist.

-Frame is Tamiya gloss black with the panels cut out of bare metal foil, matt aluminum color.

RRR,  Your detail of the Piranha chassis with the BMF is over the top!

That and the paint job...

RRR....Very well done, great use of an old standby model, what will you use the rest of the Stude kit for?

HA! I have few scattered around here. That hemi with the over-the-top double blower setup would look good in some kind of funky '60s show rod style 'T' wouldn't it? Other than that, gathering dust.... -RRR
