Atlantis® MOONEYES™ Dragster Plastic Model Kit, 1/25 Scale
Dean Moon was around cars and racing from his youth. Dean was involved in dry lake hot-rodding in the late 1940s. He founded MOON Equipment Company circa 1950 and worked to improve the quality and safety of speed and racing products his entire life. Dean Moon was a hot-rodder and innovator of speed parts. He established a company that became an icon in the hot rodding industry. Early products were a multi-carb fuel block, spun aluminum wheel discs, aluminum gas tanks and a foot-shaped throttle pedal. Products carrying the Moon name, including the Moon disc wheel covers and Moon Tank auxiliary fuel containers, were very popular. MOON Equipment Company paused after Dean died in 1987, then stopped momentarily after Dean Moon's wife died. In the early 1990s the company restarted as MOONEYES USA which continues to carry on the traditions of Dean Moon today.
The 1/25 scale plastic model kit comes from the old custom car parts. Atlantis has retooled and fixed many of them to bring this kit to life. Molded in white and chrome with newly tooled tires, the kit features a Dragmaster chassis, tons of extra customizing parts, detailed Chevy engine with Potvin manifold.
