85 World Champ replica build... "Stand off"

Post by Mach10_shooter »

I'm finally going to attempt an 85 Jay Halsey World Champ replica. Unlike some of you die hard builders I'm going to make mine more of a "stand off" build. Basically I'm shooting for accuracy with the body on. I have the majority of the parts and will be posting photos and updates shortly. Thanks to everyone before me who took the time to document and post their outstanding projects for everyone to see.

It’s a worthwhile and fun project to tackle. I look forward to seeing future pictures.

Best of luck,

Pics attached of the front and rear tires. I was lucky to find correct sets of each on Ebay.

I'm more fond of the black wheel poster car then the chrome front wheel version.
Unfortunately I can't find a set of Proline black rims. I did find solid wheel covers from CRP.
I may try to remove the chrome if it's black plastic or simply paint.

If anyone has a set of rims they'd like to sell I'd definitely be interested.
