is an AMT 1940 Ford Coupe.
I made it into a dirt track car.
left the fenders off, and made a few modifications, including
the tow bar. The glass was left out of the frames. A lot
of old track cars use no glass, or they used some kind of
chicken wire. Probably for safety reasons during mishaps,
and to keep rocks and debris from getting inside the car.
not sure if the wheels came with this kit or not, they may
be from my parts box. But the steelies get the old car look
model car is painted with Testors Gloss Red, and then sprayed
with Testor's Dull Coat to fade it a bit.
decals are I believe Fred Cady ( or maybe an old J &
J offering? I am not sure).
about any old car can be made into a dirt car, and you don't
have to make it a perfect build. Just have fun with it.
you really want to go the distance, dirty the car up with
some mud, scratches, maybe a bent body.
