Rear Engine Rail Dragster

  • Original year: 1975
  • Company: Monogram
  • Scale: 1/24
  • Designer: Tom Daniel

Deadly as a scorpion, this wild rail dragster puts the sting on the competition. Feast your orbs on this long, low, sleek quarter-miler with a finned spoiler in front and another riding high in the rear...solid-disc acing wheels in the front and mag wheels with giant "wrinkled" slicks in the rear. But what's this? Look at that muscle-packed blown Hemi Elephant engine sitting in the pleated 'T' bucket interior where the drier should be. It's gotta be the most unconventional rear engine dragster ever to hit the asphalt! Driver's cockpit is covered by clear, aircraft-style canopy. Body section lifts off to show the detailed custom chassis.

Dave's comments:

I liked it better the first time as the Trick 'T' without the spoilers, but it's still a tuff-looking rod. And then they took the chutes away too! Oh well.
