Here's my latest build, it's a replica of a '70 Challenger R/T I saw on a calendar, a 1 of 1 car, DY3 cream color with white vinyl roof, red bumblebbe stripe and red interior, shaker hood, 440 4bbl and automatic transmission. 

 

I used the yankee challenge AMT kit, added evergreen strips on the chassis to detail the floor pans, corrected the roof and used many parts from other kits, added fuel and brake lines, handbrake cables, and some other details here and there... Decals are from Keith Marks.

Looks great! What a bizarre set of options on that thing though, Cream with a white top, shaker hood, and red interior? That had to be an order, there can't be two of those out there!

For sure.! We all seem to forget that most Challengers were not purple or lime green!

Kyle, I had a 1:1 '72 Charger, same color body, white vinyl top, and a dark green interior, completely original from the factory. Ma Mopar could pump out some strange color combinations for sure!

Exceptionaly nice work on a so so kit

 

I think I remember reading about this car, as the color combo is not very common ( obviously ) . I want to say the car is in the north western part of the country maybe
