Ron Roberts' Parts Box Willys
(click the image to go back)
Here's where Ron's racer really started: He'd seen the
Pontiac 250 cubic inch straight six engine from a 1969
Firebird kit lying in his partsbox time and time again.
One day he decided it was time to stop looking at it and
do something with it. Built pretty much as MPC originally
intended, Ron added a velocity stack to the carb and an
aluminum dump tube to the exhaust header.
Ron did all the chassis, motor, and other detail painting
with a variety of Testors hobby paints.
