Johan 1962 Dodge Dart 330 Max Wedge

Amazing!  Some great ideas there that I will try my best to steal.  Especially like the emergency brake cable/clamp detail and those open header caps.

Now, that is serios detailing. I'd be interested in a tutorial on wrapping wiring harnesses.

Dr Jay:

Absolutely beautiful. You're giving me inspiration to finish my 62 Max Wedge. My 63 Plymouth Savoy is almost ready to begin building after all the scratch parts I've been making but want to finish up the Dodge right after. I've behind on the forum updates and will try to get some pics posted over the weekend.

Certainly not the prettiest car in '62, but WOW is that ever nice!! I LOVE the details you put into it..........you sure did an excellent job with the chassis as those old Johans were sorely lacking in that area. B)

And you're right, that is one ugly car! Through no fault of your own of course! :D

My dad had a '62 Dart 440 2 door that he bought new. It had the 413 with the trailer towing package.

I remember thinking how ugly it was, but it would run like a raped ape I remember it only got about 10 miles per gallon.

10 miles per gallon is not too good, however I get even less with a 440 engine.

Holy cow, that build is superb in every way! I've always liked the '62 Dodge, and I built the convertible back in the early '80s. I painted it red to match Sylvester's car in Its A Mad Mad Mad Mad World. One of my favorite cars in one of my favorite movies.
