No, some have Hemi's and others have Wedges. I like the Color Me Gone kit for the Max wedge engine, hood scoop, wheels, tires, slicks, roll bar, etc. I buy this kit just to rob for parts.

Yea, The CMG has a Standard grill, Both the Ramcharger's & Maverick

have the "Hemi" grill.

I myself have the Ramcharger's & CMG kits.

First thought about building the CMG Stock till they announced the Stock version

of the kit!

Not in these. The Stock version is a Separate kit.

 

These were the first 3 kits, the Stock was #4

Only the stock kit with the blue car on the box has the six. If I remember right the CMG kit had stock seats and the Hemi cars had only the lightweight buckets .

Ramchargers car is hemi equipped, and the unique Hemi only hood scoop. bucket seats and I think it has both grilles ( not 100% sure on the grille )  plated 5 spoke ft wheels with unplated steel wheels for the rear

I don't have a ramchargers kit handy to ck the grilles

 

CMG is bench seat  , max wedge engine and hood scoop  , stock style 4 head light grille, plated 5 spoke ft wheels and unplated steel wheels for the rear

 

 Mavericks car is bucket seats, hemi engine but max wedge style hood scoop , Hemi car only 2  head light grille,  plated steel wheels ft and rear

 

as mentioned the slant six is in the stock issue only ( blue car on the box lid ) but the slant six is also avail in the 64 plymouth kit (black car on the box lid )

 

This is probably my favorite kit. I have 4 Dodges done, then another 64 dodge and a 64 Plymouth in process

 

I wish these tools would get modified to do a 64 Dodge 2 door hardtop and a 64 Plymouth 2 door sedan

That's a reissue of the stock version that had a light blue car on the box.  They changed the box art car color with the reissue.

Either way, it's another option right?



Hope they re-issue them again some time soon.

They are relatively cheap on ebay.

Yea!.

 

Can't believe some of what I Have been able to get Cheap!

 

I do have 2 of them and one of the Stock Plynouth, but Neither has the 6!!!

Got them that way in trade!

 

Another reason to hope for Round2 to re-issue these. They Might include all the different parts in One box!

Stock & Hemi grill, Wedge, Hemi, Street & 6 engines, suspensions, tires etc. Maybe only generic drag decals,

but the PARTS!!

 

After all, they Did do that with the 60 Galaxie Starliner, & 62 Catalina SD didn't they??

And the Never released Custom 62 T-Bird version included in that re-issue!

At last count, and between all the different variations of both the dodge and plymouth. Between builts an unbuilts  I have 20 or 21 of them. It's hands down the most popular kit on my shelf. and I don't think I have over $10 in any one kit (bought them all back when they 1st hit the stores ) Johnnys toys around here was well known to sell WAY under retail. I've got numerous kits I bought in the $4.99 - $5.99 range.

 

I've seen numerous times on Ebay they sell under $10 , even with $10 shipping your in the same range as most currently  avail kits. Ya just gotta be patient.

Yes, that would be one heck of a kit.
