1964 Dodge 330 Max Wedge

Recommended Posts

Finally got some decent light to get a few pics. 
This build reminds me to return to my other early Mopar max wedge builds I have already begun to build. That is, as soon as the TBolts get finished up either tonight or tomorrow.

Really nice looking Max Wedge! Nicely detailed and that paint really sets it off! Nice work!

Fantastic build.

Thanks Jim. 
 

When I build the Hemi version of this kit, I’m going to definitely do what you did to the tail lights on your build.

Great job, and the very definition of "a clean build."  I love all the MoPars from this period. 

Back in that day, a friend's family ran a garage and a small used-car business.  They mostly dealt in "New York Cars." Rust-buckets that got a lot of Bondo in the lower quarters, then a quick re-paint.  But somehow, once they got ahold of a very clean '65 Plymouth Belvedere I. It was a real sleeper, a post sedan that looked like a "teacher's car."  But it had a 426 Wedge engine and 4-speed. I still remember the hood ornament with the vertical "4-2-6" numbers. And I'll never forget taking a high-speed ride in that thing.  Half of me wanted to jump out, the other half thought it was better than the roller coaster.

Very nice. What did you use on the carb tunnels?

Thanks. 
 

I used the kit supplied stacks, with a drop of panel line accent inside. Then a PE headlight screens, and the rings are from an electric toothbrush, painted rubber black.

Looks very good! I really like the carb stacks.

My 330 didn't turn out so hot, but oh well... I've got another one almost done that will be much nicer. This one was the result of failed paint experiment... 3 paint jobs later it still didn't turn out the way I wanted.

I really need a new phone... my camera lense has been busted for a long while and I can no longer take decent pictures.

Guess I'll have to use the wifes temporarily.

That’s a great looking build Tom! Especially the chassis paint and installation of the exhaust. Would really like to have my 62 Savoy build to turn out as clean and good looking. Cheers Misha

Holy Smokes Tom, you knocked it outta the park on this one. Absolutely beautiful.

Thanks Misha.

I am following your build and I really enjoy watching the skill and detail you are putting into the 62.

I need a moment...and a cigarette...😊

When I hit the Megabucks, I'm going to have a 1:1 version of one of those!
