Another '64 Dodge 330, this is what the other one started out as LOL.

I gave it dents and rust and body rot. I detailed the slant 6 too. I made the hood springs and notice the special AM radio antenna. I was able to hide the defects in the chrome bumpers and where they were attached to the tree with rust. I did use some PE and BMF too. Spark plugs are in the correct firing order. I even won some small contests with it. Non model builders like this model too. There's couple of WIP shots on there too.

Love it!

It reminds me of my friends '64 barn find that he bought for $700 back in '04.  It was red on red and he was going to replace the 318 V8 with a 413 (I think) that his uncle has laying around.

He sold it for $1,400 a couple of weeks later without lifting a finger after someone made him an offer he couldn't refuese.

Love it. The weathering looks great and the missing trim piece is a great touch.

As much as I love showroom shine, a fantastic weathering job is just as fantastic, if not better!

Very realistic weathering. I will have you know the radio reception was greatly enhanced with the use of said antenna despite its rather low price point.
