This is the Register Chevrolet #6 driven by Toby Tobias during the 1966 racing season. Toby Tobias is standing at the rear of the car on the first picture. The chassis on this car was built by Tobias Speed Equipment. The car was powered by a 427 Chevrolet big block with all the speed equipment available at the time.

I used a Tobias modified chassis with many modifications. I added a leaf spring front and torsion bar rear suspension. Decals from an ALPS printer. Finished pictures below.

The body is made from flat sheet styrene, the roof and hood are from flat brass sheets. The hood strap is a rubber band, the hooks are a formed paper staple.

Good job on that car, Bob. Toby was one of my favorites back in the 70s. What are you going to build next? B)
