Mid 50's Era '36 Ford Sedan Altered

I thought I'd post this because it's as close as I've come to the style of cars which are prevalent here. This is my take on a mid-50’s style altered. It's pretty rough ,but that's how I remember them. Even 'though it was a few years later they were still around and are among my first drag racing memories. Cars of this period typically started as street machines and gradually got gutted, eventually to the point where they were pure race cars with set-back engines, no cooling system or lights, stripped down interiors, etc. This build was based on a very rough Jimmy Flinstone resin body, his ’36 Ford “Rat Rod” sedan. It really wasn’t designed to be mounted on the AMT ’36 Ford fenders even though the body was based on the AMT kit. But I did it anyway. The body has a pie-cut section taken out of it so I had to remove material from the grill shell to line up the hood.

Thanx for lookin’,
B.

Most of the car is an AMT ’36 Ford convertible with the exceptions listed below:

Main Body: Jimmy Flinstone Chopped ’36 Ford “Rat Rod” Sedan”
Engine: Hilborn Injected Oldsmobile from AMT ’40 Ford Sedan kit.
Interior: Modifed AMT ’40 Ford with scratch built dashboard and interior panels. Bucket seat from ThePartsBox.com
Tires: Fronts - Modelhaus T-100 B. Rears – Modelhaus T-130 B slicks
Paint: Duplicolor Super Red II. Wheels and Interior: Duplicolor Crème.

Thanks everyone! That Flintstone body was really rough, but it's perfect for this period altered.
