    Didn't find what I am looking for at Missing link. Parts by Parks has some generic ones that are close.
    update: found what I was looking for http://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/pbp/pbp6020.htm

    Found the air cleaners in the 49 Merc . Thanks Mike
    None of the above seem to have the correct hub caps
    Missing Link seems to have a defective web site. Posted a question on their FB page yesterday, no answer yet

    Thanks but those are just generic hub caps
    also none in the Petty kit

    I will be using the Color Me Gone kit for my Dodge 330 build so that should give me one set of air cleaners and the grille. I will still need another set of air cleaners for my Plymouth build. The Dodge and Plymouth dog dish hubcaps should be the same in 64. I need two sets of these.
    I also need to pick up a Color Me Gone kit.
    Thanks

    I am in the planning stages of building a 64 330 w/426 Max Wedge as to build a "sleeper" to match the car in the song "Little Old Lady From Pasadena" by the Beach Boys (originally by Jan & Dean). I will also be building a 64 Plymouth Belvedere Max wedge to go with it. I will be building these simultaneously.
    It's also fun for me to do the research on these cars and engines.

    Max Wedge ?
    Which of the Linderg 64 Dodge 330 kits came with the 426 Max Wedge engine ? Is there any other kits that may have it or is it available somewhere else ?
    Also need the hood scoop for the 64 Dodge or Plymouth SS 
    Thanks

    I have been doing some research into this and I believe you are correct. All the major car companies got in on it. Chevrolet started with the 409, Pontiac had the 421 Super Dutys , Dodge and Plymouth started out with the 383 and 413 until a rule change in 1963 allowed them to got to the 426 Max Wedge. and Ford started with the 352, 390 then the 427 as did Mercury. I don't know if Dodge or Plymouth had a specific name for there cars as different models were used over the years but some of the Plymouths were referred to as the "Max Wedge" which may be only a reference to their engines. 
    Some info and lots of pictures in the link

    The first kit wouldn't give you the right hood but the 4 would all work
  12. Jon Haigwood added a post in a topic Car song builds ?   

    That would be the Beach Boys version. Which would make it either a 64 or 65 330
  13. Jon Haigwood added a post in a topic Car song builds ?   

    Well since the song came out in 64 the 65 Coronet Super Stock is out. That would leave your choice of either a 61-62  Dart , 63 330 or the 64 Coronet. There may be others , I am still researching them

    Maybe also use the Vette for "Dead Mans Curve" of course you would need another XKE
