The blue looks great. All your awesome Mopar builds really make me want to finally try my hand at an American muscle car!

Not to nit pick as I think your doing a bang up job. BUT Are you sure of the color ? 

TS44 is more like Plymouth Bright Blue poly ( aka B5 )

 

This car was far darker than B5

If start from the beginning of the thread you will see that JC chose the "alternate" color for the car, based on his reference photos.

Bill, I'm doing the early team car which was a different color to the dark blue almost purple color most people are familiar with.

Ok, Not seen the car in that color before.

Every pic I have on file and have seen in person  is the real dark blue car. Carry one.

 

PS, If memory serves me right. The rainbow color hooded car is the Swede Savage car correct ?

Solid Blue was Dan Gurneys cars ?

I thought only Swede ran the hood stripes as well but as always seem to be the case there is an exception.

Got mine ordered too. Looks fantastic. Just waiting for the hood/spoiler to come back in stock. Did they use yours as a master JC?

 

The decals are impressive.  No they didn't use my parts for the resin hood & spoiler David but they look to be based on the same Revellogram kit I sourced mine from.

So JC, now that you have the decals, does that mean this one is back on the bench? Or are you waiting until you finish your sweet Falcon gasser?

Yea Craig I would like to get the gasser wrapped up before I dive back into this one.  I also have a handful of other builds in various stages of construction that I really need to finish!

Fantastic article, Thanks JC. I picked up a Cuda from Michaels a couple weeks ago with a 50% off coupon, decals from Mike's are in, just need the hood/spoiler. I could make my own too, but for $7 I'll pick up the resin one. But that pic of the rollcage and your WiP pics are gonna make it easier to build this.

I'll rub it out some Shay,  I don't typically clear my builds.

Your welcome David, please post your WIP when it gets underway.

This car was one of my favorite back in the day.  Swede Savage was a brilliant driver taken from us too soon.

It's going to take awhile but decaling has begun.

Thanks Dann & Jason.  Decals are finished, just have a few small details to complete before I can post more pictures.
