It started out as a partial build up of this kit
I had a resin '71 Formula that was basically garbage. A terrible casting. I was able to salvage the fender vents off it though. I used the body I had and added the flares behind the wheel wells to match Ponch's car. Then I took a Formula hood and added the shaker.
It may look like I forgot to paint the door handles but the real car had them body color. As a matter of fact, the grille and the window trim was body color. It just looked weird in scale without the chrome trim so I foiled it.
It was a lifelong dream to build a model of this car. Thanks for asking about it!
