    Yeah I'm looking for the entire wheel/tire/backing plate combo. I want to piece together as little as possible. Thanks though.

    These are the wheels/tires I need, as well as the backing plates for all for tires.

    That is a 1 /24 scale, not 1/25.

    Ford 351C engine and Mustang wheels
    I am looking for a complete 351 engine/transmission from either a Revell 1970 Mustang Mach 1 or an AMT Street Custom Mercury Cougar, and also wheels/tires from an AMT '69 Mustang Mach 1 kit. I have some things I could trade for them. Let me know. Thanks!

    So since I need the wheels from the AMT 1969 Mustang Mach 1 kit, the engine should work as well? If there are visual differences, I should be able to custom fab stuff to make it correct. Then I can slap the 429 Cobra engine in the '69 Mach 1 kit and build that one too

    But is it a Cleveland or Windsor? They are different.

    Where to find a 351 Cleveland engine?
    My girlfriend and I are going to build a replica of her dad's 1970 Ford Torino GT but the Revell kit comes with a 429 Cobra engine...his car has a 351 Cleveland engine. Where can I find an accurate engine to replace the big block with?
    Thanks!

    No updates as of late. I havent had time. Sorry. Maybe this weekend i'll bust some more stuff out on it. I need to fill in some pin holes in the filler on the back seat.
    Thanks Joe! What do you thin your Vallejo paint with? Is that who makes that bronze paint I bought? I think I used Tamiya thinner...i'll have to check.

    A superb build my friend! I think I might go with a pro-touring theme with my T/A and AAR combo...just something a bit different.
    I can't wait to see this build in the "under glass" section buddy!

    Awesome job Joe! Oh btw, I fixed my valve cover issue lastnight so dont worry about it. Lol

    I just started my Challenger today...looks like a bunch of these are popping up in the WIP section! So you're NOT going to put an engine in it? That's a bummer. Your progress looks pretty darn good though!
  12. brodie_83 added a post in a topic AAR 'Cuda/Challenger T/A engines...to scale?   

    I absolutely LOVE the AMT 340 in the Duster kits...the detail is amazing! The Revell-Monogram however is very lacking. The valve covers are blah, the carbs are ridiculous and on and on. Since I have about 3-4 extra air cleaner assemblies, I am going to modify them to be a bit more detailed so that the main showcase to the engine looks more correct. I'd love to find better valve covers but I dont think that will happen.
  13. brodie_83 added a post in a topic AAR 'Cuda/Challenger T/A engines...to scale?   

    Yes, the 340 in the Duster kit will be going in my 1/25 '70 Cuda. It would be too small for the 1/24 AAR 'Cuda. Maybe the air cleaner just looks too big on the AAR Cudas/Challenger T/A's. I just want to build these kits as accurately as possible.

    AAR 'Cuda/Challenger T/A engines...to scale?
    I have recently acquired an original release Revell AAR 'Cuda and original release Monogram Challenger T/A. Both of these kits lack detail in multiple areas, we all know that. What I'm unsure of is...are the engines in these cars to scale? Like are they an accurate size to the rest of the kit? I can't think of another small block Mopar engine that Revell-Monogram has ever released, so maybe the only other option to build engines for these cars is the Ross Gibson 340 Six Pack/Barrel?
