    One of the best drag cars ever seen on this forum! Fourth pic from the top would fool 90 percent of the people into believing it was a 1:1 car. Great detail work ! Even has a driveshaft loop! lol

    John, you are correct when speaking of Mopar muscle cars. I should not have said "most models" because someone (like me) will always find an exception! However, not all B motors had the plug wires routed beneath the manifolds as you can see from the 413 4bbl pic below. The # 5&7 wires were run along the valve covers and over the manifolds. Those wires must have burned up real quick! Remember, when it comes to Mopars, there are always exceptions!

    Nice job! That Super Bee is terrific! Love the red detail paint on the tail light panel.
    One thing to point out for future builds. On a 1:1 B engine with factory exhaust manifolds you can not route the plug wires between the exhaust manifold and the cylinder head ( can't be done). They are routed down in front of the cylinder heads and below the manifolds. On most models the #7 and #8 plug wire runs alongside the valve cover and behind the rear of the cylinder head to the spark plug.

    Outstanding!! Brings back memories of the cars I saw at the NY Coliseum when I was a kid!

    I like it! I'm partial to blue and white '55s!

  11. 6bblbird added a post in a topic What do YOU like about the MoPars?   

    Thought it would be fun to include a pictorial history of my favorite Mopars in order.
    My first car. 1968 383 ,4 spd.

    2nd car. 1974 440 GTX road runner. I loved this car!

    I sold the '74 in order to buy this 440 six pak Challenger:

    And I bought this '68 to tow it with:

    When this A 12 car came up for sale in '76 I had to buy it! Still have it and it is undergoing a total nut and bolt restoration.

    I added the Super Gas 'cuda in 1986

    2013- today:
    Yeah, I guess I like Mopars!

    Although I did find some pics of a silver '69 GTX with a red interior it was not a vert. I'm guessing that red vinyl would fade horribly in the sun and the most likely reason it was not available.

    One thing that bothers the heck out of me with the AMT B bodies is the poorly designed 1/4 panels and wheel openings. Johan got it right. Recently picked up a built, Johan '69 runner. The "builder" must have used an entire tube of glue to install the glass. Roof is junk. I'm going to cut it off and build another convertible. Did Johan ever make any convertible B Bodies?

    Hair In The air GTX
    I am not a real fan of convertibles but I had this kit laying around for about 25 years {?} and our club (Jersey Shore MCC) had a convertible theme for our quarterly contest.
    So.........I did something with it!
    I was very close to completing the car for the contest with a day to spare when I realized that I had lost (or used) the grille and tail lights! Thanks to the Model King for helping me with those parts!

    When you build a convertible you really have to make the interior pop. Added floor mats, wood grain dash & console, seat belts, and a photo reduced instrument cluster.The End!  Yes, I left the trunk bezel off because it didn't fit well and just looked like......
     It was nice to build a car for once that didn't require saws and bondo!

    Last one that I built, I cut the inner fenders out and rebuilt them with sheet plastic!
    Tell us about the car in your sig. pic. I think I may have built a model of it.
