69 plymouth gtx pro street

Post by vcv8273 on Wed 20 Jul 2016, 9:07 pm

Hi found this one in the back of the model cupboard last weekend and decided to pull it out to see where I was up to with it. After checking it decided on a colour change and induction change. Along with the new induction I needed a scoop to keep it all hidden and scratch built a cowl hood scoop for it. Its the first one that I have built and think it came out ok. With the induction it originally started out on a thames van I am rebuilding but decided it would look better on this build. I scratch built the throttle body, the air filter and chamber and mounted it to the top of the pro stock tunnel ram which I will also add fuel rails to. Will also be scratch building new rocker covers and will have everything wired and plumbed. Am currently smoothing out the inner guards adding flat styrene for that smooth inner guard look and will be doing the same to the firewall. Interior wise will be left stock except for extra guages and the chassis is the amt superbee pro street chassis with parts box rims. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

Thanks for the comments everyone and Jezza I didnt realise how many yellow build ups I have and the paint and putty shrunk and cracked over the years that it had to be stripped anyway hence the change of colour.

Judging by the look of the car so far, it'll look great in any colour I'm sure.
