1970 Dodge Challenger 440-6 convertible (with uptop)


Recommended Posts

This is an AMT 70 Challenger built as a non R/T convertible. The engine is the 440-6 pack with the obligitory shaker hood. The up top is a resin piece from drag city casting. The luggage rack is from an original issue 1972 Grand Prix. I call the paint "Magazine Cover Yellow". The wheels are stock Magnum 500s and the tire letters were done with a Gelly Roll pen.

Looks great! You must have the patience of a saint to get that tyre lettering looking so nice. It’s a skill that evades me (among others lol)

It definitely took some trial and error to get the technique down. The Gelly roll pen is basically like a BIC ball point pen. Applying the white on the letters of the tires is a very light touch and a tiny amount of swipe/drag. The smaller the letters the harder is is.
