Wow, I'm loving all these "forward look" Mopars lately. Not crazy about the magnums and tires on it, to me these things just scream for wide whites,  but man, it's one sweet build. The kitbashing came out fantastic. Very nice.

Thank you for so many great comments. I am especially proud of how this build turned out. There are times when I surprise myself.

What a SUPERB job!!!! I have a buddy that has a 1:1 '61... it is painted "Black Cherry" which is a black finish, with red highlights.... and Halibrand wheels.... we built a 440 Magnum engine, and 727 Torqueflite tranny, with a push-button shifter...

Really nice job ! Converting promos or lumpy old resin castings to fully developed models is not for everyone. I'm putting a resin '59 Ford 300 on a '58 Edsel kit. My dremel has been busy. Looks like your promo body excaped the dreaded promo warping demons.........

I would like that as well, Pete! I don't think Mopar got as much model car recognition as they should have. Even though I was brought up on GM, I can see the beauty of the older Mopars...Desotos, Imperials, Cryslers as well as Dodge & Plymouth. I would love to see more of them released in styrene.
