Duane Steffe's '57 Chevy raced in 1969 throughout Eastern Iowa, and Western Illinois. I used a combination of the AMT '55 Chevy, and the AMT '57 Chevy to convert the Bel Air into the 150 version. The frame is from the '57 kit up to the firewall, and from there on back it's the rails and running gear out of the '36 Chevy modified kit.

I did the decals on the Alps, paint is a red/orange lacquer mix from Tamiya spray paints, and then it was weathered and "mudded" up using Tamiya acrylics. Thanks to Fred for hooking me up with the tires and rims, and all the advice. Thanks Fred!

This car will be covered more in depth in a special '57 issue of Scale Auto later this year, so stay tuned!

Man, Clay, this thing is awesome! I wanted to try the same type of accomplishment with that old MPC Flip Nose, but this has an entirely different and more correct look to it. If you want to see if Clay came close, here ya go:

WOW, LET ME REITERATE, WOW! This is right up my alley! I have to try this body- roof grafting trick! I have several MPC flip nose bodies but they don't look as rirght as this. Love your frame combination idea, too. I use the new tool 57 frame ALOT! To say the least! Great, great build!

I'd say Clay nailed it, I've always admired your work.

Great job Clay. Right on the money, as usual. Love the midwest dirt cars from that era. I grew up on them.
