1964 NHRA B stock Pontiac GTO
« on: January 07, 2021, 04:07:28 PM »
Just finished this one. It was driven by teenager Roy Gay back in 1964. He Raced it against his more well known  brother , also a teenager, named Don Gay . He drove a 62 A stock Catalina 2 door sedan. He actually won the 1963 NHRA national championship driving it. I built Don's car back in 2018.

That's a classic! Love old school racers like this. The gold wheels really set off the blue metallic paint as well.

Excellent craftsmanship Mark. A couple of nervous Ponchos for sure!
I appreciate people that actually build and post models.

...A couple of great builds.  B.t.w whats do the numbers on the door (655,657) denote?   Seen numbers before on drag cars , but could never figure them out.
The only heroes in Washington are buried just outside of it in Arlington

Hondo, The GTO is duplicolor honda avignon blue metallic rattle can. It was the closest thing I could find to the real color which was  Yorktown Blue poly. Don's car is something I got from model car world. I figured out what color his car was and ordered it from them . it was acrylic enamel in a bottle  that I had to shoot with my airbrush. I cant remember the name of the factory color. Here is Yorktown Blue on a real car. I didnt feel like ordering paint from mcw and using my airbrush on the GTO build.

Brian, I dont know anything about nhra numbering. I would guess that they issued the numbers to the team when they registered the cars for competition. But thats just a guess.  Maybe they wanted those numbers for some unknown reason? Thanks for the reply.

Dons car color was known as Ensign Blue Poly. It appears that the wagon was probably that color too.
