Does anyone make parts to convert a 68 or 69 Barracuda into a Savage GT?

look like just stock 69 lights to me,probably the hardest part of that conversion would be the emblems or a wheel source

The header and lower front valence/gravel panels would need to be created, too, and add in the hood, nameplate, rear spoiler, grille bars, separate parking lamps (not sure how the MPC parts are molded), sidepipes, and Appliance(?) pseudo-spoke wheels, and you've got yourself more work that it might've seemed.  ^_^

 

Once you've gone that far, you wouldn't want to just use the MPC chassis, either, so you'd need a Revell '68/'69 Dart kit...

Interesting..never heard of the Savage.  Those wheels look like the ones in the '80s issue (molded in orange) of the MPC '68/69 Cuda.  The Countdown Series issue of the AMT '66 Mustang had wheels like that also.

There are wheels very similar to those in the MPC/AMT 80 Monte Carlo Honda chopper/trailer combo
