    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!

    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...

    I set this aside for a few days to get some real life work done. Got back on it this week and finished my trans tunnel mod and painted the floor...




    I also got most of the Hemi motor done, just need to mount the headers and test fit them in the chassis. i'll be back...

    When I first mocked up my master cylinder, I used the "Hemi" firewall from the kit and came up with this...




    As I thought about it a little more I relaized that the "Hemi" firewall positioned the master cylinder higher so that the master cylinder/brake booster would clear the Hemi motor, therefore my mock up wouldn't look quite right compared to the 1:1 car...

    I decided to use the kit supplied "GTS" firewall and perform the same modifications. I think this looks more correct for the Hemi Dart...

    Turned out about as I hoped, should look okay once the interior tub gets painted.

    Next up is to mod the trans tunnel to better represent a 4-speed dart...

    Al, I've seen that picture and it, combined with other info I found helped me finalize my wheel openings.

    I've been jumping around mocking up various sub-assemblies as I come up with the overall appearance I'm looking for.

    Yesterday I started mocking up the firewall, adding the master cylinder relocation plate, trimming up the master cylinder and fan motor block-off...
