post-12112-0-29593500-1436189118_thumb.jThis is my first time posting pictures. I built this car for the 50th anniversary of the Chrysler altered wheel base effort of 1965. I saw this car run at Connecticut Dragway as a youth and built a model of it from the AMT Coronet kit in 1965. I thought it was a colorful car and the only factory sedan of the altered wheel based cars. Our model car club had its annual Mopar show so I thought it would be a good opportunity to build a new model of the car.

This is a Good Stuff resin body that I had for over 20 years, the body needed extensive clean up. I tried to be faithful of the building of this model to the way the cars were constructed in 1965. The engine is from the late Ross Gibson. The decals were also from the Good Stuff. The paint is Dupont with PPG clear.

Thanks for looking and any comments are welcome.

Ed

Hi Ed, now that's one real clean model! I really like it, the 65 B Bodies were good looking Mopars. I haven't seen the 65 Dodge done very often, it was one of my favorite A/FXers. Very nicely done, turning wheels too. Excellent.

Very nice work, You do not see this one built very often.

Not sure anyone makes those decals anymore.

Resin clean up is so much fun :)

I just wanted to thank everyone for looking at the car and for those who commented.

I am partial to drag race cars from that era and tend to build examples of them as models.

I have seen the decals for  this car on the web recently, so some may be still out there.

Thanks again for looking,   Ed
