Well the Demon name and devils pitch fork wasn't that popular with the "believing" church crowd so they changed it to Dart Sport in 1973...so you could use the 74 Dart Sport for your build, there are small differences between 73 and 74 but on a race car they aren't that noticable.

Alan, I was trolling pro stock images the other night and I knew I saw some Billy the Kid decals. Someone has made those in the past and modelcarsmag.com was mentioned. Google Billy the Kid, Images and you will find it there. Their is also a nice build of what you want to do on the Coffin Corner 2 site by rat nasty. Their were some pictures of a full article that he had in Car Craft or Hot Rod and I remember it well, Billy and his crew were dressed like Gangsters with a Tommy Gun full on flapper style. If you could find that issue from the 70s it would be great reference material!

 

Great choice, Billy always had some great looking cars! I hope this helps

Alan, Did you get the BTK decals from Heller yet? Curious to know what they look like, he typically has good products. jwrass

The decals for the Demon,

Not sure how accurate they are for the later Dart
