Lyle Willits' 1957 Chevy Gasser

(click the image to go back)

Here you can see where Lyle fabricated the lower front splash pan that one normally never sees on a 1957 Chevy when the grille and front bumper are bolted in their normal positions. Also visible are the mounting platform for the Bob Dudek Moon tank, drilled axle racing front suspension from the old AMT 1955 Chevrolet Nomad kit, and some of the chassis modifications required to fit them.

You can also clearly see the "gunsights" on the hood have been filled, the Replicas and Miniatures Company of Maryland used Lyle's hood as a master to produce a filled hood in resin for the Revell kit.
