Very clean work! The molded-in exhausts always were a pain for us back in the day. Interesting color, hope decals will finish the racy image!

Thanks for the comments and encouragement.  

Here are some interior shots.  Keeping this build relatively straight forward and am leaving some details on the work bench (like painting the head liner and putting a roll bar in).  Dash decals from the stash and parts box bucket seats.

Great work! The body colour is fantastic and the contrasting red interior is really cool.

I'm calling the Ford done. Body is stock AMT 57 Ford painted with Duplicolor out of the Can. Chassis had the molded in exhaust removed with a straight axel put together from the parts box. Rear tires are from AMT parts pack with stock front. Rims from a Polar Light funny car. Interior is mainly from the kit with the rear seat deleted and fronts from the parts box painted Testors Red from the can. Engine ins from an AMT 69 Ford Torino with headers made from solder and round stock.

Nice, nice, nice! It almost looks 'too good' to be a gasser, well done!
