Peak at some Super Stocks under construction.   The silver car is a 1964 Dodge 330 Super Stock 426 Hemi.  Alan, take note of the two Coronet Super Stocks, both blue with white vinyl tops, one a 440 and the other a 426 Hemi.

Here are the starts to the engines.  Very early stages not detailed...yet.  Painted Mopar Hemi Orange and Turquoise.  The 1964 426 cross-ram race hemi has the Landy signature black painted intake manifold.  The 426 street hemi and 440 will go into the 1967 Coronets.  Carburetors are from Fireball Modelworks

After these there will be the 1965 altered wheelbase Coronet, the 1968 440 Dart and the 1968 Hemi Dart.

You're off to a great start. Drive on! B)

Didn't Landy, like Bill Jenkins, paint all his engines black? (Maybe I'm thinking of someone else.) 

Just since all the Landy fans are reading this, if I wanted to build a model of his AWB '65 car, what's the best starting point? Does anyone do a resin body, or would I have to track down a Polar Lights and alter it myself?

From the photos that I have seen it appears that the intakes and possibly the water pumps were black on some cars.  Some of his cars also have black painted engine compartments.  

As far as the AWB 1965 Coronet, I was fortunate to get the last available one from Speed City Resin.  It is an excellent kit, the casting looks like an injection mold.  Not sure if he will be doing any more.  The kit currently shows Out of Stock

John, this is great looking build going on here.

Motors look really fine.

Question:  The carbs look fantastic, where are they from?

Mick..

Thanks Mike....The carbs are from Fireball Modelworks.  They are the correct models for the street hemi and 440 and race hemi.

I just ordered one, said 2 - 5 weeks lead time. But I heard their castings were worth waiting for.

That's not horrible for aftermarket bodies. I ordered three from them late last year and had them in two or three weeks, which I thought was pretty good. The bodies themselves were also pretty nice.

Thanks...I will just polish the silver paint, no clear coat.  I want it to look like factory applied paint.

Looking real good John. 

I kept checking to see your other Ford projects, but I see you got the itch to build some Mopars. I’ve been building a few myself. 

Those engines look great so far. Can’t wait to see them fully detailed.

Color on the 1967 Hemi Coronet.  Next will polish after paint sets put for about a week then apply the white textured paint to the roof for the vinyl top.
