Now that's different! Don't see many Kenosha Killers anymore. I think I have a complete engine from one of those Bullfighter Nascar kits if you need one. PM me if you do. rlr

Great beginning. For me particularly appealing because it's like building a 1:1, cutting up the stock body shell in the prescribed manner and engineering to suit. When I know more about these race cars this is the approach I'd like to take in modeling them. Looking forward to more, more, more!!!
Keep on buildin'

rlr Will be watching this one. I like the oddity of the Rambler body. Somewhere, someone is cringing at the fact you cut up a Scrambler body; oh well, they will get over it. Keep those updates coming!

Thanks Lefty, I am an AMC nut so it was only fitting to do one of these....

Bernard, it doesn't take much to put into one of these, they are fairly easy to build. Do some research and hopefully get to building one soon. Would love to see you do one!!!!!

Rick, thanks my friend, I too like the oddity of it. This Rambler body was a short shot from the factory. I pulled it out years ago to build the Scrambler Rambler and the front 1/4 of each front fender wasn't there. So I tossed it in the box and it sat there for the last 15 years. I got an idea to do this mod using a Rambler and that body came to mind, went down dug it out and said "Oh Yeah"!!!!!!!

Looking forward to this build! Something other than a Gremlin Mod. Love those AMC's. My dad had a '63 Rambler Classic Wagon(which became my first car)followed by a '70 Ambassador Wagon. I eventually upgraded to a new '71 Javelin SST. pecce

Well, I enjoy chrome from time to time. A current day restoration or replica might be more inclined toward chrome.

Kinda depends on your theme, I guess, but most importantly whatever you want. It's your model.
It doesn't cost any more to be nice.

It doesn't look bad with chrome but was thinking white would/could make it "pop" a little more. I don't know, see what path it takes when I get there!!! LOL Thanks John!!!!

Gee, Doc. You just keep putting them out one right after the other. Getting a build finished for me has been about as easy as poking a pink straw hat through a key hole. Your Rumbler looks pretty durn good, should make the Kenosha boys proud! The Nash race engine should arrive to you early next week. Keep building. brvo

Thanks for the kind words. As for cranking them out, must be my modeling OCD or ADD, or where'd I put my keys at????!!!! And thanks a ton for the engine. That'll go in my next modified!!! A buzzing Hornet...... Hmmm

:))) That turned out to be a real beauty. What don't you bring it on down my way so I can use it to mow my grass, it is definitely low enough.

Very nice, Dr. K.

I think I once did some headers like that but just used some larger Evergreen tubing like a sleeve. You have the better idea.
