    Brannan's car was the very first SOHC 427 mustang for 1965 and was originally red when delivered to Brannan from DST.  Then blue for a very short period of time before becoming Goldfinger.
    Thanks for the info on the engine compartment.

    These will become Dick Brannan's record setting 1963 1/2 Lightweight 427 Galaxie and 1964 427 Thunderbolt.
    The Galaxie will use MCW lightweight interior.

    Would have been great to go but will not have my builds done in time.  I am planning on the IPMS National Convention July 2017 for my 6 Dick Brannan Super Stock and A/FX cars.  I was planning on having the 6 Super Duty Tempest ready, but have run into a delay with those.

    Dan....I have one.  The body and hood is all get and it is done very well.  You will need the 1962 Catalina 421 SD Coupe from AMT to complete the model.  Mine has Don Gay - Gay Pontiac decals.  Dave Dodge is great to work with, I have bought several models from him not including the 16 1963 Pontiac Tempest coupes and wagons.

    1963 LeMans 421 SD Coupes
    I have mentioned in a past topic that I am building the six original factory produced 1963 LeMans 421 SD Coupes.  Each will have it's original race day decals from 1963/64.  The cars include, the Stan Antlocer Stan Long Pontiac car, the Bill Jarrett Superior Pontiac car, the George Delorean Wynn Engineering car, the Mickey Thompson #749 car, the Arnie Beswick "The Farmer" car, and the Ray Nichels #50 Daytona Speedweek car driven by Paul Goldsmith. 
    Here are the first three, Stan Long, Wynn and Superior Pontiac cars in primer.
    The goal is to have all six completed by July 2017 for the IPMS Nationals

    Excellent build!!!  Just something about those Super Stock cars that are timeless.
  14. johnwitzke added a post in a topic 1963 SD 421Tempest   

    My plan is to build three coupes together, Stan Long Pontiac, Wynn Engineering and Superior Pontiac first, along the Mickey Thompson #755 prototype 
    Bodies are being prepped now and as soon as the weather warms, they will be primed and painted the factory color Cameo Ivory and Yorktown Blue for the prototype.

    The car you probably seen was the Union Park Pontiac car.  Original lettering on the car was "INSTANT".  It is the only survivor of the original 6 wagons
