It has operating suspension and rotating driveshaft too. All of the decals were custom made by me. I built a Landy Dodge back in 1965 from an AMT plastic kit. This is the first time I've attempted it in diecast metal. It was the most challenging model car project I've ever attempted.

At first I was confused. I read it like it was a diecast and you were just showing it to us. Now I see that you altered a car to be what you wanted.

I feel the fool.

Well done indeed sir. Welcome to the forums and if you build drag cars we'll get along just fine.

Let's see some more.

LOL! Not your fault, I should've made myself more clear. Before all of the custom fabrication, it started out like this...

That is very nice. Good paint and decals are fitting just perfectly! Nice job on the engine and good detailing all over. Great job! Here in Finland, there is one '64 Plymouth A/FX replica with blown Hemi and altered wheelbase. Here
