1970 Dart Swinger 340

So the chassis, suspension, drivetrain, engine, wheels and tires, interior are from the '71 Duster, I also used a second backseat from another '71 Duster kit to build a front bench seat and used the headrests from Revell's '69 Charger.The windows, wipers, door handles and sideview mirrors from the '69 Dart. Paint is automotive basecoat with urethane clearcoat, Alclad on the bumpers, decals from Keith Marks, those decals were old and I did have some trouble with them, that is why the "Dart Swinger" emblems on the rear quarters are missing, out of the 3 emblems on the decal sheet, I was able to save only one, which I decided to use on the trunk lid.

Chassis and Wheels look good
Looks like you did a very good build of it.
That is one to own, Mopars Rock!!

Had a real '71 Dart Swinger with a slant six when I started college back in '77. Still one of my favorite cars. I do by the way have the resin model from scale coachworks. Right now You are responsable for it getting bumped up a few notches on my model list for this year.

The fender tag should be body color....
Great build. I *think* I have one of those stashed away. Yours is inspirational to say the least.
On a side note: There's a guy on Long Island that hung `71 Swinger sheet metal on a `69 Dart convertible shell. Talk about doing a double take when you see it! I don't know why Ma Mopar killed off the A body convertible after `69....
