1975 Pontiac Ventura and 1980ish Chevy Malibu help
Posted by Benny8 on Saturday, February 15, 2020 5:02 PM

I'm new to the forum. I did my intro, but it has yet to post. Back in 1993, I built a diorama of the local track front stretch with three of my dads cars he drove there in the early to late 80's. His first car was a 1972 Nova street stock, then his second car was a 1966 Chevy Chevelle Malibu, and the third build was his fourth car a 1967 Chevy Chevelle Malibu Street Stock. I had problems finding his third car which was a 1975 Pontiac Ventura late model, and his last car which was a 1980 Chevy Malibu Street Stock. I did find a 1975 Pontiac Ventura Resin Body on Ace Model Car Decals, but it doesn't list a donor model needed to complete it. Perry's Resins has the '81 Malibu body that would work, but it calls for a 79/80 Monte Carlo. My question, if anyone might know, could I use a 79/80 Nascar chassis and rollcage under that body? I certainly appreciate any information. I would love to build these cars to finish out my Dad's collection.

Benny, use any of the 90's AMT Nascar chassis.  They are perfect for really any late model, supensions will not have to be changed and you can modify any way you want.  I have also seen AMT Chrysler Kit Car chassis used successfully.  Hope that helps.
