Anyway throwing this back onto topic we thought a bit and we wanted to know would it be cooler to replicate the build and do a HEMI or would it be cooler for a 440 6

Hemi!

The DOHC Hemi from the 1970 Super Bee Pro Street  would be even better !

Wow.........tough choice! This car is on my someday list as I have a Johan one as a very good rebuilder, with a Daytona kit for the donor chassis and such. I've already built the Daytona as a Hemi, but since either of those in 1:1 is very rare with those, I'd say go for the Hemi as opposed to the 440.

I've got other Mopars that can be built ('70 Dodge Super Bee as 500 model for instance) that can be made with the 440 so nothing will really go to waste. ;)

Well sorry for the lack of updates on the new one I’ll kick it into gear soon and start working on it but I’ve got other builds I’m finishing

If you can pop out he glass on your dad's Superbird, restore it or build a twin. Ruining his model is a mistake, leave it alone.

That's an odd piece, they did only two of these and none was ever started and run under it's own power.

It's such a gorgeous  representation of a 'what-could-have-been' engine . Some decades back , Tim Boyd built a phantom 1971 Super Bird (the 1971-come-1987-reissue MPC annual of the Road Runner) with that DOHC engine , and it was spectacular .

There’s no plans to do anything with his except clean it and try and find a way to repair the wing the second kit I’m building to replicate it is the open canvas
