Thanks for the great review , Tim !
Regarding the steering linkage through the oil pan sump ; Dandy Dick Landy had this exact setup on his A/MP 1970 Hemi Charger . I can only imagine that other Hemi-powered B & E Body MoPars had similar --if not exact-- arrangements .
Apparently , the lifespan of these custom 10 qt pans wasn't too long , as the welds would fatigue in short order .
Good call on the shifter for the Slick-Shift 4-speed !
I *believe* that the Reverse-Lockout was mandated for the 1968 or 1969 season (at least through NHRA's Super Stock class ...) . I was honestly expecting to see a Verti-Gate or Ram Rod shifter ; perhaps those didn't come along until c.1971 ?
I , along with many others , welcome this edition of the 1970 Hemi'Cuda ! Kudos to Revell for working within the parametres of the existing tooling's technological-limitations (e.g. , the hood's integral scoop) to bring the huddled masses a much-needed kit !
Here's a gorgeous looking '70 'Cuda in race livery :
