Original mid '70's kit started by the kit owner back in the '70's. Body, glass and chrome are clean. Engine and some assemblies will need to be disassembled.
One more wetsand cycle and we're good to go for paint boogie

Mike, That is superb. Very Happy I have a few to post up soon too, but no truck , I really need to do a hauler. Rolling Eyes

How'd the Petty car turn out? I need to give you a call one of these days soon so we can catch up.

That's a very good job of bringing back a previous build...That looks real good Rocket. I like that color of red. Are you going to pull a trailer with this?
