It was an original kit that I built, painted, decaled and weathered. I used a proto photo to go by.

My first reaction when I saw that picture was that it was of the prototype car that you wanted to emulate.  :o  The thick brake wheel and the large tie spike heads were the only "tells" that I could find quickly - once I went looking for such things.  Really nice modeling and weathering!
