      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Resin 1961 Plymouth Belvedere...anyone make one?
    I have a friend who built a bad-ass 1961 Plymouth Belvedere and now it has been featured in many magazines and online. I was wondering if anyone makes a resin model of that year car?

    Ah, excellent news! The 340 from the Duster kit is one of the best engines Ive ever seen...so detailed and precise! It needs to have an aftermarket parts following, dangit!

    Ok, this looks pretty gnarly...this gives me some ideas for future builds!

    Thanks! The intake is from an AMT 1970 Chevelle SS from the optional parts. I might just try to modify it to fit...it looks great on the 340! 
    I'll have to look into those valve covers from the street machine kit...or maybe just make my own.

    Sweet, thanks Casey! Appreciated! I'll also have to look at your eBay store too...cast anything new within the past few years? Lol

    If you want it, id be willing to trade something or it. It is missing the engine. I got it like that.

    Pro-touring Plymouth Volare 340
    Hey all, another winter has come around and I'm bored as heck not being able to work on my REAL vehicle, so I decided to start on this Volare kit I picked up at a Mopar car show $40...unknowing that they re-released it soon after
     
    Anyway, my plans for this thing is to build up the 340 from an AMT '71 Duster with an aftermarket intake manifold, an EFI setup and possibly turbocharged. Then I'll have to figure out suspension (since there literally isn't any) and lower it, bigger wheels/tires, a few body mods to clean up the front of the car (I prefer the earlier front ends, but I'll make due). Should be a fun project!
     
    So far I have asembled the 340 engine, but am in search of a  different intake manifold that will work with this engine before I can go any further on this part. If anyone knows of something that may work, please let me know. Not a whole lot of stuff for the small block Mopar world. I found that the fuel injected hi-rise manifold from an AMT '70 Chevelle SS was close, but the sides are a bit too tall for the 340 heads. Looks cool as hell though!
     




    Also have to find some aftermarket valve covers that will work with this engine as well...the stockers are pretty lame.

    I have a Revell Civic kit as well (I think it's the earlier Civic to be honest) and have been contemplating what I want to do with it...
    Yours looks fantastic so far! Keep it up!

    Headers and intake manifold/carb assembly from Petty Dart/Cushman Duster kits
    Looking for headers and an intake manifold that might work on my '71 340 Duster engine and this is the only other one I can come up with that might work, so if you have a spare or one you don't want to use (they're kind of a dumb part with the carb molded into it anyway), then I'd gladly take it off your hands. Thanks folks!

  11. brodie_83 added a post in a topic Any good aftermarket small block Mopar intakes?   

    I also checked all of the SBC intakes I have and none of them will work. I will see if that BNL Resins will sell just the intake so I can see if it will work or not, then I won't be out of much money if it doesn't. Otherwise the only shot is to scratch-build one, and I have never done something like that and sounds like it could be difficult.
  12. brodie_83 added a post in a topic What should I build next for a pro-touring car?   

    I am not a fan of the AMT Chevelle kit to be honest. If it were the Revell kit, i'd totally build it. 
    I have decided to go forward with the Plymouth Volare, starting by trying to make a custom intake manifold for the 340 from an AMT Duster 340 kit. Thanks all!

    Any good aftermarket small block Mopar intakes?
    I'm building a 340 engine from an AMT Duster kit and its simply the best small block Mopar engine by far. All except if you want to "hop it up" a little. I have some resin 4bbl carbs but they dont go well with the stock 4bbl manifold. Is there anything out there that will give me the look and function I'm after? Thanks!
     
    UPDATE: I found 3 other small block Mopar intakes and did a side-by-side comparison...none of them will work, and they are all hideous as far as I'm concerned. Anyone know if there are any other small block Mopar intakes available that would fit the '71 Duster 340 engine?

    What should I build next for a pro-touring car?
    I can't decide which kit to build into a pro-touring car. I'm going to be doing a custom fuel injected engine, probably turbocharged, custom lowered suspension and bigger wheels/tires, and custom interior. Please help me decide!
