F/S Deora?

22 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I was inspired by a build here that someone did in Plum Crazy with ralley wheels. This is a phantom Dodge Deora R/T that perhaps Dodge may have done back in the day.

Although I'm not a big fan of Mopar's Hi-Impact greens, it works here. It also opens new doors for an ancient kit.

T/A version anyone?

Looks very production-worthy, though I think Dodge would have gotten rid of the Ford wagon liftgate as the windshield! :lol: Love these kinds of "what if" builds. :lol:

I used a pencil to make the basic outline for the doors, then made the first scribe pass with the sharp edge of a exacto, then used the rear edge as if cutting out doors. Thanks all for your most kind comments! BTW Mike, feel free to send me a Deora, and I'll build one like that! ;):o

There is a grill between the lower set of headlights, behind the turn signals.

Very nice build, color suits it well, seeing all of the recent Deora builds makes me want to grab one from my shelves and get going on it. B)

Hey Lee...looking at your build got me thinking I didn't really know much about the Deora, so I found a good article about it's history, and kinda sorta it was a Chrysler production truck...ok a weee bit modified :D and using a number of Ford parts and it had a slant 6 but it looks like you have an 8 sitting in just fine!..that looks really cool in the R/T scheme :)

Thanks Brian. The Deora was a customized D-100 Van, I believe. It did have a slant 6, as does the kit of course, I had to cut off and reposition 1 motor mount. I used the 340 from AMT's Duster kit. I'd like to see that article. Do you have a link?

The "Deora" was NEVER a production model in real life! It was a custom truck done by the Alwexander Brothers from a '64 Dodge A100 truck plateform!

Production Dodge Deora? MAY have been a great idea!

I'm building a model of this and that yellow they painted it WTH ugly!? I LIKE the Sassy Grass Green one someone done!

I making mine Mopar Turquoise (like the engine color) slightly lightened with a black center stripe with the "silver" one down the center of the black!

I like it! Love the stock small block, the wheels, and the doors. I'm thinking that a well designed, factory looking R/T graphics/stripe package would be cool too.
