  • Carrera Nascar rare

    I was walking thru my junk yard, and came across a Carrera Dodge Nascar that was not being used. I had a bunch of spare wings , and decided to give the #58 a wing and a nose.
    I simply took a winged version, removed the wing, and took tape and made a template so I would know where to cut slots for wing.
    I used an exacto and just scored the whole over and over till I cut thru.
    Thanks to Mopargreg, I was informed that the team did race a winged car. The number on the car was 8. It was only raced a few times. and photos are pretty scarce.
    I'm gonna leave it like it is for awhile. I may add the fender scoops later Click image for larger version

        That is cool. The wing mounting although probably tedious, is well done and well worth it. Great effort.

        How did you make the nose?

          The nose simply comes off a factory Daytona car.
          It is glued on from the factory at a couple spots. Not hard to trim off the factory glue and just pop it off.
          Then, you remove the original grill and bumper you are working on, and slide the nose right on.
          It makes a perfect fit.

            Yep, very easy to do the nose, the wing is more tedious for sure, you've done a great job converting, looks great!

              You've done a great job converting, looks great, I've recently discovered my love of driving the Carrera NASCARs especially the SuperBird and Daytonas! I've bought like 8-9 of them in the past couple months.

                Thank you Slotcat
                I really like the classic Nascars. I guess it goes back to my AFX days.
                It helps when you have a big scrap yard in the basement. I'm doing a few more conversions now, I will post again soon.
