One more to close out the year… Bonneville Monster
It’s a 49 Merc chop top. 12 point cage. 429ci engine Even a driver.
The complete interior was modified to race specs.
This should fall into the pre 1950 modified class with a normally aspirated engine running on regular fuel.. It should have /GCC marked on the rear side window. That’s for later.
Oh, the inspiration is from the real aluminum spun and machined hub caps from Pegasus Hobbys. These are wafer thin and fit perfectly. The front tires are from a Monagram Indy car, buffed smooth and round. Too much fun! I hope you enjoy.
