Grandfathers NASCAR progress pics
Posted by lizardqing2 on Sunday, January 25, 2004 1:47 PM
Here are some progress shots of the car I have been working on for a little while now. This is a replica ( as much so as I can replicate ) of one of my grandfathers NASCARS he raced in the first year that NASCAR ran. The actual one in the photo is a 39 Ford as I found out the otehr day and the model is the Revel 40 Ford. No real difference in the 2 years except that one was heavier according to my grandmothers brother. I am hopeing to get this done by next weekend to give to my dad, looks like I better get busy. I am applying some of the tecniques that I have learned from building armor the last 6 months and having fun for ince not worrying about trying to get a showroom look. Let me know what you think , I'm always open to comments.

Here is pic of the real one, this is the only ref pic I have so some things are guess work and from talking to family that also worked on the car with my grandfather.

Looks great! Would like to see the photos in colour when you are done. Is it red, by chance?

Actually those are in color. The First pic is just one I took of the original with my camera. I did'nt know the actual color of the real one but I had a family member that helped out on the real one tell me it was black with white top.

Looks great so far!
It also looks like your work with armor has helped with the weathering on that chassis. I just may have a few questions you could answer!
Show us more when it's finished. Your grandfather would be proud.
