Thank you all for the kind words!-The valve covers on the motor are wrong-Thay are for a small block dodge.

 But I don't care.

 

Thanks,Eric

Very NICE! The wheels are kind of uhhh.... But thats personal choice. You said the valve covers are wrong, they did make them for big blocks too. Also since you're trying to test Mopar guys eyes, i'll raise you one and say the PVC valve  is located in the wrong spot for these valve covers and the intake sits to low :P

Wow! Beautifully doe, great detail, and very sharp and clean. And it has mirrors! Yay! The only thing I'm not too big on is the giant wheels, but that's just personal opinion. A very cool model, excellent craftsmanship.  B)

PCV location depends on year.

 

1968- 1969 Big blocks are on the pass side and towards the rear of the engine

And that's why I build modified cars. More fun...Freedom do do what you want...No rules.

  And Thanks for all the comments.

PCV location depends on year.

 

1968- 1969 Big blocks are on the pass side and towards the rear of the engine

But on the cast Mopar Performance valve covers, the location for the PCV is on the right side where the left is for the twist on cap. thus putting it in the wrong spot. He said he wanted to test our eyes, did he not. :D And actually with the blurriness  and angles of the pictures one could be hard pressed to see if they where BB or SB covers.
