Description

Digging deep into the tooling comes the classic Monogram Dragster. This all plastic kit comes all molded in white, Does not have chrome parts or rubber tires- a real classic. All new artwork created by Gene Chambers. Comes with 2 decal options for the Fireball or the Californian. We had an issue with the the drag link and frame rails being short shot. This has been corrected. All kits ship perfectly complete. If you received a short shot on those parts email the parts department for a quick replacement.

The dragster is a specialized type of race car designed to cover a quarter mile drag strip in the shortest time possible and to reach the highest speed doing it. It is basically an engine mounted in a simple chassis. The weight of the engine and driver is centered, as much as possible, over the rear wheels for best traction. the rear tires are usually the extra wide, smooth "drag slicks". The front tires are usually the slim motorcycle type, mounted on spoke wheels for lightness. The Atlantis Fireball Dragster is a typical example of the cars used all over the country during the early to mid 1960's. The engine is a highly modified Chevrolet V-8 with a GMC supercharger.

    Fireball Dragster

    For the age of the kit, this is an excellent offering! I was very surprised by the crispness and flash free nature of the castings. The only thing that might need updating would be the front wheels. They kinda look like wagon wheels, but I also understand that they are what came in the original kit. Also, one frame rail was short shotted in the process, but Atlantis let me know ahead of time and I was able to request a replacement part. The parts department was lightning fast and very courteous, just the best! Highly recommend this kit, especially of you are anyway interested in vintage model kits and vintage drag subjects. Keep up the good work!!
