Inspired by our fearless Kiwi and our friend Gavin Evitt, I am dong a series of sedan style road racers. There was a truly wide variety from the 60's ththrough the 80's, the first done will be this Mustang with Tunnel Port Boss 302 power. It is the simple AMT 66 Mustang kit. I have most of the main stuff assemble d and painted, but decided to remove the exhaust and slightly rebuild the chassis. I just need to plate the floorboard in a few places and it is ready to go ansd accept side dump exhausts. I will use early Nascar Blue streak Nascar tires on the American Mags, the number circles and then hand letter as usual. following cars will be replicas, some with decals, some with me duplicating their oringinal lettering, or signwriting as they say in NZ. :lol: Once the chassis is repainted this one will come along very quickly, foil, a few wires, some detail paint and thats it. I hope it will be interesting and that you'll like it.
