GTO Super Stocker

This is the '70 GTO Super Stocker that Model King re-issued several years back. I bought 5 of
them when they came out for kit bashing with other bodies. I was down to the last one in my
stash and decided to do the GTO since I did one when I was a kid. I always thought the body
looked kind of bulky so since I had 4 extra bodies I thought I would do some hacking and see
if I could make it a little more racey. I trimmed off the lower part of the quarter panel, removed
the lower body trim, and removed the front valence where the turn signals go. I think it gives it
a sleeker profile. I also narrowed the rear bumper, built a front bumper and new window net.
And I replaced the kit wheels with wide 5's.
Thanks for looking!

That's just great Kevin. :))) :))) :))) One of the nicest one of those I've seen. I have a chassis painted and close to together and a fully painted old Challenger body to drop on, but, you know how it is. Soon though! :lol:

IAracefan,

Great looking Gto. I wish these would be reissued. Have a M/C in the stash.
By the way you want to race?
