I built the Infini-T/C-Cab in the early 1970's.
Soon after finishing this model it was packed up and stored until June 2001.
This is this first public showing of the Infini-T! The Infini-T is based
on the MPC Fire Truck, with the Corvair engine chassis parts and front end
from Revell's Moon Mixer and the "InfiniT" decals fron the AMT
Infini T kit.
The Fire Truck body was glued together and
then a rectangular section in the rear was cut out (to make room for the
engine and transmission) and reshaped with sheet plastic. The rear end was
then closed off with a section of sheet plastic, with an oval shapped window
added. I think the taillights are actually head lights from Monogram's Cherry
Bomb. The windsheild posts were made from "L" angle plastic stock.
To get a carpeted look texture was added to the interior with body putty.
Rhinestones were used for headlights and wheel centers. The Infini T body
was finished in variegated gold leaf and clear coated.
