As Edsel Dan has asked . Who is doing the '71 Challenger Raggtop to make the Pace Car ? I prefer before the Race Version .   Thanx ..

Harts Parts makes resin conversion parts incl.a flat hood to convert the AMT '70 convertible to a '71.

 

Time Machine Resins makes a resin '71 body etc.

Yea, Definitely want an Early/Before Race start Pace car. That is the one that

coming to the Start forgot to slow down & hit the Press stand at the end of pit road.

 

Thanks for the info, Bet the Hart's Parts would be cheaper than the full body from Time Machine.

All I need are the front clip, Grill etc, Tail lights, and interior if different upholstery pattern.

 

I think I will use the Twinscoop hood in the last re-issue, or even the one I filled from the

Yankee Challenger issue!!

I've seen pictures of the '71 Challenger IPC w/ the twin scoop hood and the flat hood.  Must be a before/after change.

Or different cars.

71 is the year that the pace car was selected LATE.

Almost at the start of the event. (or that month/week before)

I have read that they just took one off the lot/showroom at a local dealer.

It happened to be Orange with the white & black interior

No Dealer offered replicas as they were standard production cars.

 

The Cady decal sheet has markings for several different engine options too. Likely

because those at the track had different engines too due to the late time frame in choosing it

Regarding the Comp Resins '71 Challenger P/S body, I just picked up an AMT '70 Challenger and it appears this will work as donor kit.  I only did a quick check but the chassis pan and the interior tub seem to fit almost perfectly in the Comp Resin body.  I haven't removed the flash from the resin body yet but it also looks like the hood and windsheild fit correctly also although I'm not sure the hood will work for what I have in mind.

I'm thinking of getting one of these and using the Johan Sox & Martin '71 Cuda as the donor for chassis, interior (since the Cuda interior is stripped out) and engine.  I have a stock MPC '71 Challenger ht and a a couple AMT '70 convertibles w/ '71 conversion parts to do convertibles, but would like to do a Pro Stock '71.
