‘69 Dodge Daytona

Recommended Posts

I built this one for a small local show (that starts tomorrow actually!). Painted Tamiya Coral Blue, with a wired and plumbed 440 engine with a Fireball Modelworks  Carter AVS 4 bbl carb. I used the wheels and caps from the ‘68 Charger special edition kit. I love the look of the steelies on this, gives it more of an all go and no show type feel. I ran out of time to do the black gasket on the nose, and I didn’t want to rush it and ruin anything this close to the show. I may add it on later.

Very nice work. I like the color that you chose and the wheels do give it the perfect look.

Beautiful looking Charger. The paint finish looks almost like a Petty Blue in the picture, maybe a shade or two lighter. Great wood finish on the interior. I also like the painted steel wheels especially if they have a deep offset.

Great looking build, looks like you could actually start that engine.

Outstanding work! I really like the color and the engine and chassis details as well as the interior are top notch!

Fantastic job on the wood grain interior pieces, and engine detail. Great body color.

I love everything about it. Great detail work. Great color choice and paint job. But that interior steals the show.

Thanks everyone! I did get the gasket done, I’d tried a section on the bottom with an ultrafine black sharpie a few days ago. It looked good, so I did the rest last night. A word of caution though, even the test spot on the bottom is still wet! Not sure how long it will take to dry, or if it ever will. Oh well, it’ll go into a display case and very rarely get touched! The show/contest went great, I won Best Factory Stock - Dealer Delivered and a red ribbon (first place) with this car, as well as a few other ribbons with a few of my other builds. My three kids also entered and each won a ribbon, (they’re 8, 12 and 14), my daughter winning an award as well. I’ll post pictures as soon as I’m home.
