This is my 2nd WIP behind the Topkick I started in Pickups, Vans, SUVs and Light Commercial. It is actually further along than the Topkick, but decided to post it too. I'm terrible at remembering to take pictures, so bare with me.
The build is 71 Daytona based on the AMT 71 Dodge Charger R/T kit. Parts are supplied from the AMT 69 Daytona, Revell 70 Superbird and 71 Plymouth GTX. The nose and side filler panels came from the 69 Daytona and actually fit easier than I expected. I straightened the front edge of the fenders and hood to line up and attach the nose cone. The wing was from the 70 Superbird and the top of the rear fenders and mounting points had to be reworked for a cleaner fit. The rear bumper was dechromed and the badges removed. I plan to use the 5 spoke oem wheels with a set of Fireball Modelworks Goodyear Eagle GT's.
Here is what I have so far:
Engine is based on a Mopar Performance equipped 440 6pack pictures found on the web. I made custom decals to duplicate the finned Mopar Performance valve covers. The shorty headers were scratch built. The finned transmission pan and pulleys are works in progress.
Enjoy, comments, suggestions and ideas welcome.
