1970 'Cuda rear window louvers in kits?

8 posts in this topic

Posted

Do any of the 1:24 or 1:25 'Cuda kits, have the louvers for the back window included? Also, would the louvers (if I can find any in a 'Cuda model), also fit the Challenger?

Thanks a bunch,

Revellograms  71 has a set. Don't think they'll fit on the challenger tho, different glass.

Monogram first issue Hemi Cuba had them and Lee is correct, rear windows are completely different.

I thought I seen an article in another model magazine where they used the louvers from the '71 on a build of the new '70?  I am thinking it was Tim Boyd, but I could be wrong....two "Cudas were built....copper and a yellow one.

Whatever you do , don't put Pennsylvania licence plates on it ! Hahahaha .

The ancient Monogram 1971 Hemi'Cuda hardtop has the backlite louvers . 

The Challenger's backlite was quite a bit different from its Barracuda relative .

OK, thanks a bunch for the great answers, fellas. I checked my Revell '71 kit, and indeed the louver is there but doesn't seem to fit all that well on the '70, so I probably will not use it. It probably sounds lame, but I will not be foiling the window trim on my 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, and I was hoping to cover up the back window, so that it won't be quite so noticeable that it has no chrome trim.

Those were done by Rod Maskiw..I gave him the louvers from a 71 Monogram Cuda..He just cleaned them up and they fit right on..

I must have done something seriously wrong then, as they don't fit my kit worth a darn.
