Just beautiful. Your alterations are so well done that without the WIP one might think the kit was created this way. Thanks once again for your detailed descriptions and photos which continue to impress and inspire. Thumbs Up

Very well done, Mr Tex. This is one of the best yet, though the fact that it is one of the coolest stock cars of its period helps a bit Wink. This thing looks flat out awesome. Your modifications turned out great. Love it!

Here are the only 2 reference pictures I had to go by. The rest was just edjucated guessing. The car only ran one race in this (fancy word) "livery". So I was lucky to find these.

Supertex you have turned out another beauty and great subject.  You got me with the Rex White version, I was expecting something different.  It would be interesting to know who wheeled that merc before Rex got it.  I have seen photos of the later Rex White 64 Merc but there are very few photos of the early 64 season when he was in the 63.  (Only 2 races maybe?)  Great looking build and choice old Chap!!!   I Love it!!   Can you give me a hint on what might be next?

Thanks , George for the reply. The next car will be a modern car so I wont bother with a wip and it will be from the ARCA series.

Ok, guys. I did not like the way the pictures turned out so i retook them and posted them. They just didnt look right. One shot looked like there was red overspray on the trunk which was not the case.

Lovely Merc. I especially like the area where the exhaust pokes through the sides . Subtle yet inventive !

Spencer, In 1963 all the stroppe mercs had the exhausts come through the frame and then through the body in that fashion so I tried to mimic that the best i could. in 64 they came out a little differently where the pipe was not flush with the side of the body. Thanks for the reply.
