1964 Dodge 330 Super Stock - Landy

Recommended Posts

My 1964 Dodge 330 Super Stock driven by Dick Landy is moving along.  The 426 Race Hemi is taking shape, still detailing left to do.  I really like the photo etch grill.  Paint came out great, leaving as single stage to replicate the real car in 1964.  Goal is to have completed in time for the Heartland Nationals in Bellevue NE Oct 5th.

That's cool.  This car started as a normal Dodge 330 Super stock then the wheelbase was altered and became what some say was the first funny car.  This static open to debate, but the changes were pretty radical.

I painted the intake black and the engine compartment will be black as well.  I know the. restored car has a silver engine compartment and the intake manifold is orange, but back in the day, both were black.

Nice job on the screens to make those stacks look realistic. 

That grill looks 50 times better than the kit supplied piece. (Hemi with the inner light omitted.) I didn’t know there were PE parts for this car.  I’ve accent washed mine with different acrylic paints, and it still looked horrible, so I just gave up.

Getting closer.  All that is left to do is decal the passenger side and install the rear bumper.

Thanks Tom.  I like yours as well.  So I have built Ford and Dodge Super Stocks, next up I think I will do a couple of Super Duty Pontiac's.  I have 1963 Lemans coupe and Tempest wagon kits and the decals.  I have been wanting to start these.

Thanks Jason.....keep going with yours (you're doing a great job!) as it represents the final version of the car I built.

Two builds of two great Super Stock drivers cars, Dick Brannon and Dick Landy.  Up next will be a Pontiac 421 Super Duty.

Outstanding build. 

Do you have any front and rear pics?  I’d like to see a better shot of the PE grill you used on this build.

I used the photo etched grille in one of my old builds.  And I sure improves the front of the car so much better.

 

BUT, keep in mind the moulding across the top of the grill is attached to the hood on the 1/1 car. So there will be no moulding across the top if the hood is up .

Looks great. That kit supplied grill is the worst I ever tried to darken. Definitely going to get the PE parts for when I build mine.
