This is one of my favorite funny car builds based on how it came out. I started out with the amt 1968 kit . I moved the front wheel wells forward using patches from a donor body . Then I painted the body with tamyia red , white & mica blue topped with a coat of clear. The decals came from joe at freemont resin I highly recommend his stuff as it’s top shelf quality. For the chassis and the tin work I used my favorite donor kit the polar lights barracuda funny car . For the engine I used the polar lights hemi with the heads and valve covers from the amt 1963 corvette kit which is a great wealth of parts , and it’s relatively inexpensive when hobby lobby has them for 40% off .!Until next time thanks for looking 👀, Mike IMG_1866.thumb.jpeg.4d4c57d6d858ce219634eb3ddf280de1.jpegIMG_1863.thumb.jpeg.1c9c3049bdc58a8ed96f2def662ca495.jpegIMG_1865.thumb.jpeg.ff11af9a7c4df003c7d774e240b5b416.jpegIMG_1867.thumb.jpeg.c04c8c7085248ac8482f54e4c91cb47d.jpegIMG_1864.thumb.jpeg.f993f0074f81c47d3fd9b7e8b0822389.jpegIMG_2438.thumb.jpeg.5ddf9f7108fdd6fb5102cda646ac87dc.jpegIMG_2434.thumb.jpeg.937be1e78acc50efa53bfe00fa5cb257.jpegIMG_2435.thumb.jpeg.8b98c76ee4c749da40d058107ea51777.jpegIMG_2436.thumb.jpeg.edb6216a7c0658aa8ad8308dd5fd20e3.jpegIMG_1869.thumb.jpeg.43a182f29082a21ed76427d215e4bfea.jpeg
