  • Boss Torino

    Here's an M2 Torino I have made some changes to. I guess it is no longer a Cobra Jet...
    I drilled the rivets on the unopening hood and scrapped the fuel injection stacks and engine. I replaced it with one of my resin cast Boss 429 dual 4 bbl carb engines. I painted and detailed the engine compartment a bit more as well. I also added a resin cast hood scoop. That kinda gave me fits because the carbs were just a hair too tall. Allot of drilling and filing to hollow out the bottom of the scoop more. Now it's on the trailer and off to the track!!!

    I do believe I like my version of this one much, much better...

    This one from the Auto Wheels series came with a really nice selection of drag tires and wheels for customs. The front tires were pretty skinny. I'm pretty proud and happy with this one.

    Other times I display it with this custom hauler made and RAOKed to me several years ago from a good friend and member of Hobby Talk site. It looks awesome hauling this Torino!!!

    This was before I got the scoop to fit right and permanently attached. I had to add a thin piece of sheet plastic to the bottom to raise the scoop and hollow out the scoop more to fit over the two carbs.

      Looks tons better with the scoop instead of the stacks. Looks good on the trailer as well.
