And to get really picky ; the air cleaner assembly was "Air Cleaner Orange" on the Ramcharger equipped engines ( eg, non-fresh air intake engines had round , black-painted air cleaners .... unless the Noise Reduction Package was ordered / mandated ; those received a "silenced" air cleaner --- think : 1967 440 and the two snorkels air cleaner ) . Also : 1969 was the last year for the breather / oil filler setup . 1970 models had the rocker covers redesigned ; the breather and oil fill were now separated , and were switched to the right ( passenger ) side , and the PCV switched to the left (driver) side .
UPDATE : 23.08.2016: The red 1972 Road Runner, RM23V2G, is featured in the latest issue of Muscle Car Review !! What a beauty it is ; its list of options is quite extensive ( factory cassette with microphone was $300 alone in 1971 ! ) . Now , where are the rest of the 1972 440 Six Pack / 6Bbl cars ?
The 1969 1/2 Super Bee was the only way to get the "M" code 440 Six Pack . One couldn't even order disc brakes ; the only options were : TorqueFlite or 18 spine 4 speed ; coupe or hardtop, and a few other items . All of them had a Dana 60 ,regardless. With that in mind ; who's to say that the owner of a 1969 Coronet R/T didn't pick up an Edelbrock intake and Holley 2300s from Hustle Stuff (predecessor to Direct Connection) ?
Although the Hemi package mandated 15" wheels ( from 1968-onward.) , I would still love to see a stock version include the W11 Deluxe Wheel Covers as option ; those would be correct for any 1970-1971 Dodge with any other engine ( 225, 318 , 340 , 383 , 440 , and 440 Six Pack ) . As far as 15" wheels are concerned ; either standard steel wheels ( in body colour) with hubcaps, or the ( dime a dozen ) Rallye Wheels . " Magnum 500's " were 14 " only on Chryslers ( their true nomenclature is Road Wheels ) . Still awaiting for someone to offer Spyders in their kits ...
I am quite hopeful for a stock 1970 Charger ( or at least a 2- in- one with Vintage parts as an option ) . I hope that some rolling stock that consists of deluxe wheel covers ( ie, the new for 1970 14" wheel covers ) , and not another set of ( yawn ) Rallye Wheels ( !!!! ) .
That is one super kit !! In my opinion , every one should at least buy one of these groungbreaking kits , if for nothing else to exhibit our -- the hobbiests' -- support for Round2 and their growth . Very few newer cars do it for me ; however I do rather like the new Camaro. .. This one is going to end up in my collection ! I like the potable front wheels , but would like to see Round2 offer an option : one " simplified" steering setup , and one detailled setup. Thanks for the comprehensive review and photos , Tim!
Bill , I wish to tee my hat into the ring regarding the engine / transmission : Aside from the aforementioned 4 bolt rocker covers , and the induction setup , there are two distinct items onthe 1961 models : 1. ) Last year for the Road Draft Tube ( first year for CCV- - later , PCV- - on California models ) 2.) Last year for the cast iron Torqueflite. ( A-488 ) , which was the only transmission available, IIRC ( no 4 speeds at least ... except for the 1962 Point-a-Mousson trans from France) .
At last ! The 1955 Nomad makes its return ! No more ridiculous ebay prices ! My only concern : were those garbage custom tyres replaced with new versions ? I'm in for that Pacer, too . Haters gonna hate , and I. Don't. Care.
I don't want to wrestle with that fidgety AMT 1969 Chevelle. We need a new- tool 1968-1972 Chevelle, Bottom line. Definitely a Freudian slip on my end regarding the Sportabout ; I meant to say Runabout
