My summertime 1 to 1 scale kit.
Posted by 70gtvert on Monday, February 16, 2015 4:09 PM

Model in the winter, summers do too sorta, It is a kit, but in 1 to 1 scale.  Been 4 4+ years and just need to attach the exhaust, get as front end alignment and do a tune up on it. Factory 5 65 Daytona. Comes in a bare frame, a fiberglass body that has over sized panels that need to be trimmed to fit and often a reworking of the glass. Has a 1990 Mustang GT drive-train without the computer and fuel injection, went with a carb instead to keep it looking old school,

Gorgeous! Way cooler than another Cobra roadster. I remember reading a review of this beast in Car and Driver several years ago.

Looks like a fun ride-I've always love the Daytona body style.

You did a great job on the build.

Whoops !

    Is that what that looks like . WOW ! I did one too . Resembled the old Mercedes roadster .Used a Chevy Nova drive train .Six with punch ! It can be fun , except when it arrives and the boxes overwhelm you ! Mine took about five years off and on . Mama sure liked getting her space back in the Garage !

    I used her space and the extra one for a build area  .With my tools , my truck got the last inside space . Seems if you had tools , to make your living with , park on the curb and folks would steal them .
