Looks great, Mustang!
Coincidentally, one of my former superintendents raced a similar Willys in Super Gas drag racing class. Did well with it. He's retired from racing now, though. It was also in blue! 

Thanks Ray! I've always liked these Willys rides and would love to build one in racing form. Got any pics of your superintendent's ride?

I'll be looking forward to that!! 

 

I'd like to thank everyone with followed along and/ or commented. Thank you for allowing me to show my auto builds here among some true pros at aircraft modeling.

I finished this one up this morning.

To recap:

Started out with these two kits and a Pro Street vision. I did end up using a few parts from the old Revell release such as decals (for patterns) , rear license plate and a couple of small items here and there. The Street Demons paint scheme on a Pro Street car was what I was after.

I've always had an eye for Revell's "Street Demons" series back in 1983 but I don't really care for the gasser look that a few of 'em had...……..this one in particular. In staying with the theme I set out to change things up a little bit in the way of a slight color change up, stance, powertrain and interior.

Powertrain: Super Stock 426 Hemi came from the Revell 1968 Hemi Dart kit with upgrades to the ignition, fuel and throttle linkage systems.

Wheels: From Future Attractions. I had my machine shop at work cut the rear wheels in half due to the fact that they were just too dang wide to use with the tires I had.

 

Aftermarket Items: Too many to list.

Paint: Testors Icy Blue Lacquer, Testors White Lightning Lacquer and Testors Wet Look Clear all decanted and shot through an airbrush.

Decals: Speedway Decals

Nice, and fast too. It takes me forever to get anything done.

Thanks Kevin. This............is a true rarity in getting this one done in under the 5-6 month marker. It usually takes me 6+ months to get ANYTHING finished.
