Time for the final assembly.........

I checked the final version, & think that the intake stack piece was rotated back-to-front (with the vertical extender in the back, instead of toward the front)when it was installed in the body. Is that correct?

Beautiful work, producing a car that LOOKS like a car, with awesome hardware beneath.
Thanks for showing in such detail.

That's right Marcus. The back of the body kicks up and the little gizmo on the intake stack piece helps to level it out.

 

And thanks, I think it looks more like a real car too:  :)

Rick,
as usual, very nice job. I have no idea of what happened to that car after its original build. I assumed that I tested it for the magazine, and then... ???
Luckily, one also built at the same time by Billy Steube Jr. for Bruce Paschal survived, was sympathetically restored and is now on display at the LASCM. So not all is lost!
