Got a hemi?

Post by vwjuice » Tue Jun 05, 2012 5:44 pm

Just picked up a Parma Hemi on ebay yesterday. Thankfully i finally was NOT sniped at the last freakin second. Can't wait to get that painted up and ready for the Sassy chassis truck I'll be building. 8)

That's cool. Is that a Bolink legends body? It looks perfect on there.

No its an original parma hemi sedan body, they guy I bought it from said it was rare...er. I never done the research to confirm. It came with 2 other coupe bodys. they made a corvette also.
just FYI when building these motors I suggest not using the normal modelling glue as it, doesnt last. I used shoegoo and a tooth pick and turned out stronger IMO.

I remember the hemi coupe, hemi vette, and the '29 ford roadster; but I don't remember that body. It looks cool.

Thanks for the tip on the engine. I'll defitinitely do that.

I posted pic on "what is it" thread over on brother site rc10talk and see if someone knows what the body is. I was just going by what seller told me but upon searches I cant find it?? :?
Its a perfect fit and has the moulded pan that the hemi oil pan fits into so Id say for sure that its made for it but by whom??
