A Small Lego Musclecar

Introduction: A Small Lego Musclecar

About: I am Hobbs.

This is a small lego car I built. The design is based on the 1969 Mustang Boss 302. It is four studs wide and twelve studs long. If any of these pictures are not descriptive enough, or you are having trouble building this, then just leave a comment and I'll help you out. Now, to the build!

Step 1: Parts


The following picture shows all the parts that are required.

Step 2: Build

Start by placing the wheels on the axles. Then, take 2x2 plates, and place one on top of each of those. Put the wheel wells on top of those, and put another 2x2 plate on each of those.

Step 3: Build

Now, place the 4x10 plate on top of those two, leaving one stud hanging over, like in the picture.

Step 4: Build

In this step, take two 2x4 bricks, a 1x4 brick, a 1x4 plate, and a 4x4 plate. Place the 2x4s on the 4x4, and put the 1x4 pieces together. Place these underneath the 4x10 in between the wheels.

Step 5: Build

Now you need a 1x4 brick with 4 studs on the side. On the two middle studs, place a black 1x2 grill. Put two clear 1x1 circles on the other two, and place this assembly on to the overhanging stud. This is the front end.

Step 6: Build

For this step you need a 2x4 slanted piece, two clear 1x1 cylinders, three 1x4 flat topped pieces, and two 1x3 slanted pieces. Place the 2x3 slanted pieces on the back two studs, so there is one stud hanging over. Then, place the cylinders in front of those, one on each side. Place the 2x4 slanted piece in front of the cylinders. To finish this step cover all of those with the flat pieces.

Step 7: Build

Take two 1x1 pieces with studs on the front and put them on the corners of a 2x4 plate. Place a 1x2 with a hole in the middle in between those. Put transparent a red stud on each of the 1x1s front stud. Now take a gray 1x1 stud and insert it into the hole on the 1x2. Cover the top of this with a 1x4 flat top plate. Place a 1x4 brick behind this, and put it on the car as shown in the picture.

Step 8: Build

This is the final build step. You will need ten 1x1 circles, three 1x4 flat top plates and one 1x2 grate. Line the outer edge of the hood with the flat pieces. Put the grate in front of the windshield. Cover the six remaining studs with 1x1 circles. Use the last four studs to cover the four studs in front, as shown in the picture.

Step 9: Complete!

Now you are done! If you have any problems with the writing or pictures, or have any suggestions, leave a comment and I will respond. If you build this, but change some parts, I'd like to see, so leave a picture.

    The top right piece I'm having trouble finding. Is it possible to build this without that piece?

    Yes, it is possible to build it without those pieces. You could add another 2x2 piece on top of the axles, and then put a 2x4 on top of that.

    Nice little project! Just out of curiosity, why did you stick with the CAD drawings for the intro and completion pictures, rather than taking photos of what you actually built?

    Because I am not the best photographer. I could try to take some real pictures today.

    :-D It'd be cool to see one shot of the finished build; for the construction stages, the CAD drawings are excellent!
