You know, it's funny. I met the guy who's Charger was used for this kit and it was nearly identical to this car! The car was the same color, but it had Magnum 500 wheels, 440 Magnum/727, and white interior.

Great job on this build. I really like the color combo and the decision to use the wheel covers instead of mags. Very realistic and believable representation of the real thing!

Thank you everyone! This one sat on my bench since the end of April and I picked away at it whenever I could. I took my time, tried a couple of new things, and here is the end result, one of my best builds!

Michelle, is this the car you are referring to?

This is the same photo that was on the 2008 Mopar calendar that my friend had sent me. I just had to build that car!

I have a question about the Revell 69 Charger kit.

Does it only come with a manual shifter/transmission combination?

Thanks guys!

Yes it does. The '69 Charger kit has a 440 4bbl. with 4 speed trans, shifter and console. For my build, I got the auto shifter, shifter plate and console from Missing Link Resin and I was told that it was the last one he had. The Hemi came from my parts box.

Great build! My father-in-law had a '70 in this color scheme but his had white interior, I later repainted it in a close Light Caramel Dupont Imron, wish I had bought it from the Mother-in-law when he passed on. It was a low mile 383 version. Brings back many memories, it was what the wife learned to drive in.

Thanks Del! I like it when someone tells me that a build of mine helps to bring back a memory or two. Especially good memories!

yep it sure is! I have the same calendar lol. It's also been used in numerous Mopar books and magazines, as well as even on "Classic Mopar Muscle" stickers that somebody made and was selling on eBay a few years ago.

Michelle, that is perhaps the only known picture of that Hemi Charger SE. I wonder where that car is today, if it still exists? I guess I'll never know.

Thanks Bruno and auroramike!

Mike, I did not have a WIP build on this Charger on this forum. The one you found was for my '69 Charger Daytona. And there is no luggage rack on the 1:1 so there none on my model. I used the Revell '69 Charger R/T kit for this build.
