Beautiful builds!!  Just fantastic.  

As an aside, I was devastated when "Zookeeper" made his last pass in 1969.

Me too. I think he might have been my first hero lost.

Yes, Revell molded both these cars in 1/16th. However, both had substantial inaccuracies. The Fighting Irish kit had incorrect body panels, and the K&C kit had rear wheels that were only run once. It's ironic, my K&C build used a Fighting Irish kit as a basis and the California Charger started with a Fighting Irish kit. Both builds used Competition Resin body parts and the Irish used Comp Resins rear wheels, valve covers, injector, and scoop. Both builds had the magnetos relocated to the rear of the block to simulate "392" blocks.

Hi John!

What a beautifull combo. World class finish, bravo!

Is-it me, or dragsters were more gracious back then? They belong in a gallery, really!

Yes, both were available in 1/16 scale from Revell.  Both still occasionally available if you are willing to search for them and pay the $$$.
