1970 Dodge Charger RT

Recommended Posts

Next up, Revells 1979 Charger. Testors Green Go Lacquer and Ultra Gloss Clear. Will have a Black interior. Kit has nice Redline tires but will keep them for another build.

Nice colour! I always find that the old Mopars look great with the Redline tires and some 4-5 slot old school steel rims.

Good paint job! That green really suits the Charger.

AH, the MoPar colors of old. You would never miss your car in a parking lot. This color looks strong on this Charger and shows the body lines well. So what sort of tire and wheel combination are you going to use ?

Thinking a set of Amt Parts Pak Goodyear Polyglas White lettered and either a set of 5 spoke mag of some sort or just I'm leaning toward the stock Magnum wheels for a stock look. I wasn't around back them but to me the red lines say 60's not so much 1970.

Nice paint job.  I think that green looks pretty close to Sassy Grass Green ?  Maybe?  This appears to be a really nice kit that builds well.  The red lines were not an option after 69 so you are right about the polyglas rwl tires.

Yes. Green Go is the Dodge name, Sassy Grass is the Plymouth

Redlines went the way of high-button shoes by 1969 ( the last year that Chrysler used them ; AMC as well , IIRC ) . They are "incorrect" on any 1970 & later stock vehicle , being akin to Wide Whites on a vehicle built after 1961 .  Raised White Letters tyres were the newest thing (white walls continued as well ) by '69 - '70 .

Interior completed. Hand painted wood grain even though the kit came with decal wood grain

While trying to finish up my 1970, I've been toying around prepping my next model to see what I can come up with.

I’m just about finished with this 500 conversion. It’s the Daytona kit with fenders and hood from the 69 Charger. Wheel covers from Fireball Models. I took the decal back off and ordered on from Keith Marks.

Lookin' good!!!.... 😎👍 

I'm a little curious if that Charger 500 body will fit the more modern AMT '71 chassis which has lots better detail..... 🤔
