'63 Nova Gasser
Posted by zenrat on Monday, July 08, 2013 3:42 AM

I used the Trumpeter kit with the blown 427 from the Revellogram '39 Chevy and scratchbuilt suspension.

It's the 21st Century. Where's my Jet Pack & Flying Car? On the bench - detritus mainly.

Thats cool. I didn't know Trumpeter made a hardtop version. I've always seen the convertable kits.

If you can't find or afford to buy it, Build or make it yourself.

 

On my bench: 57 Ford skyliner, 56 chevy gasser, 57 ford gasser, 2- 72 Novas , 69 nova, 54 chevy fieldcar, 61 Galaixe ,  63 Buick electra convertible..along with  a handfull of stalled builds I need to finish. Basicaly too many.

Really dig it Fred! The MRC wheels fit it so well, and even those square shouldered M/T's look great here!

Thanks folks.

The headers are from a Testors AMX modified to fit.

The MRC wheels ARE great but I had been struggling to find a suitable use for the square tyres until I built this.

Awesome job on that Chevy II and I really like that two-toned paint job as well.
