    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 ( !!!! ) .

    There was a special order green for Spring 1969 , too . It was very close to --if not the exact same-- as Chevy Rallye Green. 
  7. 1972coronet added a post in a topic Round 2's new AMT 2016 Camaro SS FULL DETAIL kit: First look/detailed overview (and I'm not kidding about that full detail comment....)   

    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!

    What was the last year for the small(er) backlight? 1974 ? I would love to see a good 1974 Camaro- -- the NicKey Type LT just begs to be replicated !

    I want for the Supra to see the light of day again ! Talk about unique ----- who besides the Japanese companies were modelling Japanese subjects in the 80s? ?
  10. 1972coronet added a post in a topic 1961 Chrysler 383   

    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) .
  11. 1972coronet added a post in a topic Houndstooth Interior   

    1971-1974 Dodge and Plymouth models had houndstooth as an option : Dart , Demon , Charger , 1971 Challenger , Coronet ; Duster,  Valiant , Scamp , Road Runner , GTX,  Satellite,  1971 Barracuda .
    The best source for Chrysler:  Hamtramck Historical
    P.S.  : I love the 1969 Camaro Daytona Yellow houndstooth!

    Thank you , Bill and Rob ! That kit was ostensibly on my subconscious ; I now recall reading about it on this forum (ha ha ha) .

    The AMT 1968 El Camino SS 396 would be great to see again

    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
