1963 Dodge Custom 880 Body/Kit

Recommended Posts

Hello to all. The last several days I have been looking for a 1/25 scale 1963 Dodge Custom 880 resin body or resin kit. I want to build a David Pearson 1963 Daytona 500 car. Does anyone know of a source of this body style? Thanks You.

I can't help you with the body, but that would be sweet to see you build that one!

You need the body from a JoHan '62 Chrysler 300, and modify the front clip to match.

The front clip may be tough; take a look at a Jo-Han Rambler Marlin as a possible donor to get the more square shape for the top half of the fenders, grille opening, and hood.

 Nothing available in resin for this that I know of, unfortunately. These were good looking cars.
