'Streetle' Beetle
Super Short Beetle...with a '40 Ford "Nose Job"!

  • Original year: 1975
  • Company: AMT
  • Scale: 1/25
  • Designer: David Wilder

Streetle! Is it a VW? Is it a '40 Ford? Nope. It's a little of each, with some trick custom touches like a sectioned chassis and beetle body, '40 Ford hood, grille and headlights. Version shown on the cover includes "woody" decal option and deep dish "baby moon" wheels!

Streetle shown here (yellow side panel) sports Cragar mags. "Continental" custom decklid hides Streetle's potent race-prepped powerplant.

Dave's comments:

Not exactly going out on a limb here in creativity. At least I get some choice in how I build it. This original kit si still sealed.
