Drat. So I need a resin copy of the Ram Tubes from the Johan kit. Well, I'll start looking for some.

Here you go - Jo-Han used the long rams for a few years in their Chrysler kits:

That intake was NOT avail in a 1962 Dodge Dart, period. That was full size Mopar cars ONLY

Might have come in the Kits, but that intake was long gone by 1967 in ANY body style Mopar.    I think 1962, ( maybe 1963 ) was the last year avail

Like I said before, "If you want to go by the song lyrics go Ram Induction OR build it the way you want"

I did not say it was, As far as that goes Dart was never mentioned in the song.

Something I've never understood about the long ram induction..... it put the carbs right over the exhaust manifolds/headers.....

Wouldn't that heat the intake charge? I always thought you wanted that as cool as you could get it....

Gabe, I checked Drag City before I tried Harts Parts. There may be other who re-cast it too. Harts was just the first I found.

In theory that is true. But back then they were worried that the fuel wouldn't vaporize completely going through those long runners to the engine. We installed heating tubes from the exhaust manifolds to the bottom of the carburetor mounting area to help atomize the fuel and make sure it didn't cool down too much. I worked on that project in the Performance dynos at the Chrysler Tech Center back then. Check out the picture in the above post by GTX6970 and look under each carb and you will see a pipe going into the intake manifold. Here is another picture showing the heating tubes.

Not trying to be a dick either, Just saying If you are building to the exact sing lyrics, you need a Super Stock Dodge (which happens to be that they were only Darts) , a 413 and Ram induction. The whole thing together is not correct but it is the song lyrics. I just pointed out what a Ram Induction was and provided a picture for reference as that was asked by the OP. 

A lot of builds are not "correct" because we build them for our own enjoyment. 

It's all good

Kinda like Springsteen's "' '69 Chevy with a 396, fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor." :D

Or how about this from Warren Zevon's "Roll with the Punches": "Johnny had a '57 Chevy, four on the floor and a 429." A 429? Why? :wacko: Because it had to rhyme in the next lyric: "We used to take it out on Wild Horse Pike, run it out to the end of the line." B):D

As you said, it's all good. B)

Well for a real challenge try building Jan & Deans "Schlock Rod"

 

 

 
 

Schlock Rod! Schlock Rod!

I own a '48 Buick and it's olive green
Schlock Rod! (Oooh! Oooh!)
All the kids on the block say it sure looks keen
Schlock Rod! (Oooh! Oooh!)

There's big chrome stars on the side of the hood 
And those six extra taillights sure look good! 
Schlock Rod! Schock Rod!

I, er buy all my car parts from a mail-order house
Schlock Rod! (Oooh! Oooh!)
And everybody says my car is sure Mickey Mouse
Mickey Mouse! (Squeak Squeak!)

I got lights in my wheel wells and Portawalls
I burn cheap gas and she always... stalls
Schlock Rod Schlock Rod
I got one big truck tire that's low on air
(That's cool! Cool! Cool!)
Makes her sit a little lopsided, but I don't care!
Schlock Rod! (Squeak! Squeak!)
I got twin antennies with a raccoon tails
Spare in the trunk, well, it's full of nails
Schlock Rod! Schlock Rod! 

Look at us go
Goodness gracious, we're traveling fast!
Schlock Rod
Zippity zip down the street
Schlock Rod! (Squeak! Squeak!)
(You betcha, Red Ryder... Follow me, Muscles)
Schlock Rod! (Squeak! Squeak!)
Race that Honda
Don't wind her up too much
Oh, oh, oh oh Take him!
I can feel the vibrations
We're gonna take off, I bet you
I wouldn't bet you...

Schlock Rod! Schlock Rod! 
Zipping around wet corners 
I can make her brody
Schlock Rod! (Oooh! Oooh!)
And then I stop at the drug store, well
Just for a sody (That rhyme...Ewwww! Ewwww!)
With a bright orange bug deflector with a great big jewel
When I make the drive-in scene, I sure am cool!
Schlock Rod! 
Look at me, I'm hep!
Schlock Rod! 

I just bought a propeller for the front of my grille
(That's swingy... Hi, boys, it flies!)
Well, looks so nifty makes my heart stand still
(Ahhhh...Uhhhh?)
And if you ask me if it's slow
I won't lie
I can shut down any Honda
With the uh, wink of my eye!
Schlock Rod! Schlock Rod!

To funny,

Wasnt a Vette made in '62 that stood any kind of chance against a 62 Dodge Max wedge. UNLESS it hard a sharp corner at the end.

Given the time frame of "Little Old Lady from Pasadena" I have always visualized this car, or one just like it.  Maybe a 1963.  Change my mind.
