  1. Yes , simple publicity stunt to draw big money buyers all in under 1 roof. Owners name is Tom L. and he has owned the car for quite a while and YES, he does drive/ has driven it occasionally
  2. Talk around the community is it will get bid sky high ( 6 to 7 mil ) and end a no sale 1 of three 4 spd cars and the only one in Winchester grey . Ive seen it in person a few times. The car is a knockout in person
  3. this is a Duster but the method is pretty much the exact same
  4. Mopar was primer on the bottom side. with various suspension pieces only painted ( or not painted in some cases ) primer was typically a bluish grey color and it WILL have some body color overspray along the sides of the car But the exact primer color did and does vary by which plant the car was built. LA plant as an example was a REALLY dark grey almost black color No Chrysler product of the period ever had a full body color underside .
  5. Seat I dont have. But to be honest the arm rest / buddy seat wouldnt be that hard to scratch build from some 1/4" square stryene stock But I m sure I can scrounge up a B/RB engine and auto trans for sure . be this weekend before I can dig though EDIT, just ckd and pulled the entire 383 engine / trans out of the Hemi dart kit. Just need address. But Yes the 71 Charger does have the buddy seat in it. But by the time you separate it from the seat and rebuild the sides of it. You can make your own easier I think
  6. My 2 cents. Move the forward most bracket outward just a tad , basically to the very edge of the intake where you have it now its going to be in front of the carb
  7. As far as i know . The wood grain door panels and dash trim were standard on the GTX trim level.. Question is......was Daisys car an actual GTX? I seriously doubt it. . Most likely a car thrown together from various sources.
  8. I dont believe that is Jay Lenos actual car. I think its there to store while the ca wide fires were going on a while back . he did a show on while it was there
  9. If you need closeups of anything for the engine. Pics are as close as my garage
  10. Ive done this method using both air brush and rattle can paints. Key is VERY light touch with the swab. Best to use it under a lighted magnifier

  12. foil under paint. I use those real small Tamiya pointed swabs dipped in laquer thinner to remove the paint
  13. Steve, if Az is on the short list My personal opinion is avoid Phoenix ,,,,,FAR FAR to much traffic and never cools down enough in the summertime , at least not for me . BUT there is much more to do and see in Phoenix if thats your preference. I settled south of Tucson. but can be in Phoenix in about 2 hours if I feel the need to visit and I dont have to deal with the traffic or heat unless I visit
  14. Ive built models off and on since about the age of 6 or 7 . Ive owned all kinds of Mopar muscle from wing cars to Convertibles and a few Hemi cars. Sold my last one about 15 years ago. Ive built several cars for other people over the past 12-15 years So I have been pretty much 'car less ' of our own for a while But got the itch BAD about 2 or 3 years back to get back into vintage Mopar Muscle. But felt a project was of zero interest. SO,,,,last fall I finally made a deal and pulled the trigger on my current car. 1966 Satellite , Hemi auto. In MY dream color co
