  1. gtx6970 added a post in a topic '71 Cuda Gill Vents   

    The vents are just under 2 inches thick top to bottom. Most of that sticks thru holes in the fender leaving only maybe an 1/8" or so above the fender. The inner pocket of the vent is actually below the surface of the fender, making the impression they are functional, ( they were never functional )

    I used to.
     
    Sold my National Dragster magazine collection earlier this year.
     
    Thinking about selling my vintage magazine collection as well. It covers a lot from early sixties to early seventies.  I simply don't read them or refer to them for reference (thanks Google ) 
     
    Its a verticle 4 drawer file cabinet..... that's pretty full.

  5. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Not sure whether this has any value...   

    Ok, I did some asking around with a couple guys I know that collect dealer promos. ( I used to collect Mopar promos )
    Seems the beige/ white one is worth in the $25 to $35 range. the easiest one to find of the group
    Red is a little more in the $35 to $50 range.
     
    Seems the Dark blue will easily bring $150 and up ( much harder to find mint )

    Not sure value.
     
    But I recently sold a NICE 62 hardtop for $50
    So I would think its worth at least that.

    You know it's not nice to Photoshop real engines onto a model bench and call them model parts.
