Another fine build from my brother Gator.
Here's Speedy Thompson's GM ride for the last of the open factory wars for a while.

What did your btother use for a body shell? Did he mate an AMT '55 2-door post w/ one of the AMT '57 hardtops?

The 'black widows' were one of my favorite early race cars-a friend of mine in high school built a clone of one in the early '60s and ran it very successfully in Modified Production class drag racing in upstate New York. Your brother did a fine build and thank him for reviving some good memories. . .

I'd like to know also, please.
My friend has a 150 painted in the Black Widow scheme and I'd like to build one for him, so if you or Gator could let us know what you thought of the body's quality.

He certainly did do a fine job here!
