Brings back memories for me... In high school my buddy had a 62 Super Sport and I had a 63 Super Sport, before I switched to the winning team... MOPAR!

Race hemi engines had chrome smooth valve covers



depends, the restored to "as delivered" form that I have seen have had the black wrinkle finish, I think the owners put the chrome ones on to add a little flash to the engine compartment. I am sure everyone has seen this article before. now, this is just one car, there may have been some shipped with chrome valve covers, hard to tell.

Everything I've seen suggests the Hemi Darts were delivered with black wrinkle finish valve covers.  But I welcome any and all input, thanks guys.

Thanks guys...


Finished up the Hemi motor today.  The only changes I made from the kit were to strip the chrome from the valve covers, carbs and velocity stacks and paint them in more representative colors.  I also removed the vacuum advance can from the distributor since the Race Hemi uses mechanical only and I swapped the kit's four blade Hemi fan for the kit's seven blade 440 fan.  I looked at a lot of pictures of the 1:1 cars and promotional pictures of the engine; I found the four blade in the engine pictures, but the cars using the seven blade viscus clutch fans.  I may fab a clutch for the fan before all is said and done.  


Anyway, heres the motor...
