It has the following modifications.

amt blue streak slicks 

parts box wheels 

the engine is from the kit with the missing super stock hemi parts from my stash of mopar parts. The headers are made from solder and aluminum tubing 

paint is tamyia and decals are slixx 

there are a lot of different aftermarket decals available for this kit, and converting them into a super stocker is fairly easy to do.

as always thanks for looking,and all the nice complements,      Mike

Sharp model, and sharp car for real! Not familiar with this car, but may need to pick up some of these decals; it's a real looker!  Well done.

I would like to differ. I remember {won't say the guy's name} a " B-A" straight black SS/BA ';65 Dodge...nasty hemi and alumiinum fenders back then. Later

Just to clarify, in 68 you could run SS/B by adding weight. Most racers did this if their car wasn`t competitive in SS/A.

He means that Hurst built the real hemi cudas in 1968.....there were no super stock hemi cudas built in 1969.    I am doing the same thing though and building a '69 as the Sox & Martin car as it is close enough for the shelf.
