.....you say, thanks for looking,,,,however Roger, thanks for sharing. love 73-4 Duster super stockers from the era, this car, all the Hamburger cars, Mancini Racing, and all the rest. terrific work here, and a killer project idea that I myself have pondered a dozen times. great to see one of these so nicely executed...........the Ace....:lol:

That's just a really well done and executed model.  The stance makes it look like a 1:1.

Man , that is nice !!  Is that a '73 340 ? '74 360 ? Just wondering about the SS/L class ; seems to be in line with a 340 or 360 of '73 or '74 vintage ( Judy Lily's Dart was in SS/KA ) .

How was that resin to work with ?

 From the Ramchargers book it was a 74 360  that was a class L. I believe it was bumped to K the next year. The fact that is was a 4 speed is really cool to me.  They broke the Class L and K records several times and won the tough division 3 Super stock title.

They then went on to build a W2 powered E/G Dart Sport that won at the US nationals in 78.

The casting was very clean and easy to work with. Would buy another in  heart beat.

Thanks!

Thanks for the info regarding that beauty . 360 / 4-speed is rare , as it was a 1974-only option ; by '75 , all were automatics only .

That casting appears to be from Competition Resins . I know that you bought it via eBay , so my guess that it's from C.R. is pure speculation .

Where did you get the Motor Wheels Flys ?

Buying resin from e Bay with seeing it in person is risky but that Duster body looks great! The finished car is fantastic! Looks spot on!

Roger, that's a very convincing build and wonderfully done.  Great attention to detail and the subject is original, I really like this model.

What's even better, no Hemi.  Small block Mopars can really run quick, amazing how quick too!

Excellent!
