    Golden Commandos 1965 Plymouth
    Hope this is not old news. Did a search and didn't find anything. Saw a photo on a Facebook drag racing group of a Golden Commandos 1965 Plymouth Belvedere. Photo was cropped but it appeared to be a kit box. It said Coming Soon. The poster was involved with the team. I asked if it was a model and he said yes. I assume it will be the same as the Melrose Missile. Model King perhaps.

    Champaign Gold. Bob Ford also had some earlier Galaxies that were yellow.
  4. afxmustang added a post in a topic Tasca and Bob Ford Thunderbolts. Now a dual build   

    Here is a photo of the actual Bob Ford car. I believe the correct color is Champaine Gold.

    If you are thinking of dropping a Mustang body on the Comet chassis keep in mind the Comet wheelbase is 114" and the Mustang's is 108". The A/FX Mustangs also had the rear wheels moved forward 3 inches.

    MPC Funny Car Windshield
    I need the clear windshield from a MPC Omni Charger funny car. The kit was produced in 1982 and I think it was called Nitro Charger. The car on the box was blue. There was also a black car called Prime Time. I have that one but it had a smoke colored windshield. I need a clear one.

  8. afxmustang added a post in a topic `65 Plymouth Hemi Super Stock "Melrose Missile"-Moebius/Model King   

    I received the Missile kit today. Looks to be a decent kit. Noticed three small things. The instructions show to install the console. Pretty sure the real car did not have a console.  "Air Cleaners" are not correct in shape. Also no roll bar included. Looking at the instructions I'm wondering what a "Torque Filter" transmission is.
  9. afxmustang added a post in a topic Moebius California Flash 1965 Belvedere   

    The Golden Commandos car pictured was the 2% wheelbase car that only ran in the 1965 AHRA and NHRA Winternationals. It was then converted to the altered wheelbase car. Same goes for the Melrose Missile '65 hardtop.

  13. afxmustang added a post in a topic `65 Plymouth Hemi Super Stock "Melrose Missile"-Moebius/Model King   

    Chrysler had four cars prepared for the 1965 NHRA Winternationals to run in A/FX because the NHRA wouldn't let the AWB cars run in that class. They had acid dipped bodies, carbs and a 2% altered wheelbase. They ran A/FX. The Super Stock cars were two door sedans. They were run by the Ramchargers, Color Me Gone, Golden Commandos and Melrose Missile. All were later converted to the full altered wheelbase cars. I would guess this model represents one of those cars.
  14. afxmustang added a post in a topic The Numbers on the Windows of PRO stock's   

    My point had nothing to do with imports. It's the engine. The engine has to be the same brand. You can't run a Chevy in a Colt. Because it was sold by Chrysler and called a Dodge Colt it would have to have a Chrysler engine. The Datsun wasn't sold by Ford or called a Ford. It couldn't run a Ford engine and run pro stock.
  15. afxmustang added a post in a topic The Numbers on the Windows of PRO stock's   

    First of all a Datsun with a Ford engine would not be in pro stock. As far as the driver number the first number is the division that the driver resides in. Take for example Wayne Gapp. He lived in the Detroit area which was in Division 3. His number was PRO 356. When he won the championship his number the next year was PRO 1. If he finished out of the top ten that year his number the next year  would go back to PRO 356. The NHRA has 7 divisions based on geography.
