Chevy El Camino Funny Car

  • Original year: 1973
  • Company: Monogram
  • Scale: 1/24
  • Designer: Tom Daniel

Wild funny cars are big on the drag strip, and this baby's got to be the wildest one to make that scene. Can you believe that big injected 454 cu. in. Chevy "rat" motor stuffed behind the driver? Or those neat upswept zoomie exhaust headers? And dig those hi-rise chrome injector stacks that top off the louvered rear deck. With big Goodyear slicks on chrome mags, this quarter-miler means nothing but trouble for the competition.

Dave's comments:

The glory years of show rods may have been winding down in 1973, but somebody forgot to tell Tom Daniel. This rod screams pure muscle. And that tilt-up body lets it all hang out when at rest. No trouble here.

Built in 1998
