The 'Cuda was an easy conversion and it would have been more fun to do if I hadn't goofed with the body. This conversion basically consisted of just swapping parts. I'm sure that if you give it a try you'll see how well it can go. 34 9 MUSCLE CAR TIRES any of the new and old kit releases from the model manufacturers build into really nice models, but I always felt that something was lacking. One evening, at a model car meeting, one of the members gave a demonstration of how to "redline" the kit tires on Monogram's GTO.

I also found it necessary to sand down the carbs a bit so that the air cleaner would fit under the hood. I painted the engine block with Testor's Chrysler engine red enamel and the transmission with Monogram's Metalcote polished steel.
