Got the idea for this one from a vintage Stock Car book with the Rocket 88 pictured in it. This kit was built before the new Olds release.

The Chevy has flared rear wells , solder headers, scratchbuilt seat , a trap door to look at the front right tire from inside the car

Very nice. Did you have to do anything to get the small block to fit? I plan on putting one in mine, I am doing it as a 60's street machine.

The engine fit right in no problem - the trap door came from another stock car book. It was actually from another later model year car-- I just thought it would be cool on this one. The actual door in the real car had a rope and a spring loaded deal (lanyard) so the driver could pull the rope, check out the tire, let go of the rope and the door slams shut. Nice.

I painted the flat black on the frame and other parts and rubbed graphite on them to give them the metal look.
