37 Chevy Coupe Gasser


Recommended Posts

Everything went pretty good on this build except the candy orange paint.  The hood came out a different color so I'm using the clear orange hood & glass that came in the kit and displaying the painted hood on a stand.  The engine is a 572 BB resin engine I got from a fellow You-tuber (Rusty Rotor) and the headers came from my good friend Roger that I modified to fit.  Wheels & tires came from Jay's Wheels & Tires 1948 on eBay.  The wheely bars, parachute, and decals came from the parts box.  I set this 37 up like the 1:1 37 Gasser (American Pie) that I found online.  The chassis was totally modified to except the Big Ole Meats in the back and to get the front end to the proper height.  The chrome on the wheels were hit with a Molotow pen.  The red balls on the injector stacks are 1 1/4' ball pens I bought at HL.  Just cut the metal straight pin off and your good to go.  The body was painted with Tamiya white primer then a base coat of Tamiya acrylic X-11 Chrome Silver was laid down.  The finish coat was Tamiya X-26 Clear Orange to try and get a candy color.  Other than the hood not matching it came out pretty good.  Hope you enjoy the pics.

I'll say this again. I think the mismatched paint on the hood is a happy accident. The clear hood really makes this car pop!

I appreciate man.  Thanks.
