  • Chevrolet mid-engine C-1500 Sportside Pickup - finished!

    Dundee Crew hasn't had time for a build in a long time!!!

    This Hot Rod article has them inspired............

    AMT 1/32 Snapfast Kit and a ARTIN chassis and motor unearthed will be the structure.

      Cool project. Is that an old model kit or currently available?

          Hey Michael!

          Bought it at a model car swap meet several years ago and thinking I would have paid less than
          $10.

          I have a 1976 MPC Stepside Chevy kit paid less than $10 for that too. Most of the time they are in the bottom box of odd kits under the table!!!

            I had a 1976 Chevy short bed stepside truck. It was the first brand new car I ever bought. It was so light in the rear that I had to strap a tree stump to the tailgate in the winter. It was medium blue with white accent stripes.

          Boyz shot the main paint color Tamiya Pearl Light Blue TS58, along with seeing how that engine placement looks in conjunction with the light bar today.

          And get a feel on the accent color on bumpers, light bar and lower body of Navy Blue AS-8.

                Boyz have just finished the second color on the C-1500.

                Added some oversized tires (IG1003 Indy Grips) to the rear too!!!

                          56 degree's in Dundee and the Boyz spent the time finishing up their latest Chevy pickup!

                          Thought I would show you the whole stable of Chevy pickups at Dundee Speedway. Click image for larger version

                            Nice work on the trucks, Denny. DaBoyz surely did a fine job converting that mid engine monster. I like the custom striping on the rear fenders!
