This is a stalled build I want to finish up.

AMT 69 Chevelle body shell and trim pieces from a glue bomb in a lot of kits from eBay.
The chassis is from an AMT NASCAR kit with the cage modified to fit the Chevelle body
Wheels are home resin cast copies

I am using ACE decals.

Beautiful re-start! I really like the aluminum seat and I will echo what harron said about the lines.

Thanks guys,
I really didn't think this one would get much attention since its a basic NASCAR build and since Smokey's real car was a 66/67.

I really like the 69 body style and the wheel base was so close I didn't have to adjust much on the plate to make it fit the shell.

The body is painted the gold and when that dries enough then the black will go on.

The decals are really nice and are going to make it pop.

Speaking of decals, the picture really shows how bad I missed on the gauge decals, I have more so I am going redo them... sheesh

Now why didn't I think of that? Great idea. And build. Good use for that old AMT Chevelle body.

This is so cool! I plan to build a 72 Chevelle stock car soon and you have given me some ideas. Nice work!

Thanks guys.

Art, I will be watching for that one.

I am calling this one done. I found a star wheel tool in my grandpas old model tool box and I used it to make the indentations that look like rivets for the front bumper cover panels.
