      This took me about 6 months to complete working off and on. I used the Revell My Ultimate Mopar Garage 67 GTX kit and production model garage kit.

    Outstanding John. I love the Coke machine. Glad to have you with us.

    Ditto l:l:l:. I have 3 of these kits. Can't wait to get started on them. I plan on building one as a Sox & Martin race car.

    Did they ever make and/ or run a GTX in the AFX class?

    To the best of my knowledge no.:confused: But Lee Smith did run a dark blue one for Plymouth as a factory car in the UDRA with a one piece fiberglass front end and a straight axle that was set up as low as stock. His 68 Road Runner originally had a straight axle too but he changed to a modified stock suspension due to top end handling problems in the lights. :eek: It seemed like everything from 1963 Falcons, Novas, and anything but a milk truck got altered wheelbases and an axle. But to the best of my knowledge no one built an altered GTX, but don't let that stop you, the shape of the car would look perfect with the wheel wells moved forward both front and back.l: When I seen some of these creations run when I was a kid, there were many home built jobs that would wander so bad they would loose 2 seconds crossing from one lane to the next, do wheel stands half track for no reason, blow up, break drive shafts, break straight axles, and go like no tomorrow. But you know what, they were cool and kept us coming back for more, the promoters knew a good thing when they saw it.l: Keith 88proof.

    Sorry Don. I'm not that good :(. I'll just stick to kit bashin' fer right now.... You know.. Cragars an ' slicks, roll bar and a beautiful buffed out paint job.:). So far, I have one of the bodies in primer My Ultimate Mopar Garage grey. I'm not sure of the color yet.. Bright red?? or a Daytona Yellow??. I'm still flippin' a coin on that one.

    Guido...don't under estimate your modeling skills, you might surprise yourself. Besides....it's alot cheaper to screw up a 1/25th car than a biggie.

    I can't believe that engine was available back in 65. You could see the gas gauge move as you drove down the highway.

    HFC.....back then it wasn't miles per gallon...it was gallons per hour. My street driver ('64 Plymouth 426 stage III wedge) when I was a youngster got a good honest to gosh 5 miles to the gallon, and that was 220 octane Sunoco at less than 50 cents a gallon. You got to remember these cars ran leaded gas and you could run the compression up to 12 or 13 to 1 on the street.

    The average street hot My Ultimate Mopar Garage rod now with unleaded fuel is lucky to handle 8.5 to 1 compression ratio. Fact of life guys...less compression...less horsepower.
    The lead in the fuel acted as a buffer for the valves and when they took it out of the fuel they had to add hardened valve seats to the heads to cut down on wear ....and on and on and onn....

    Wow, I didn't know Sunoco went up to 220 Octane but I do remember 13:1 compression ratios for hemis.

    I rebuilt a set of those carbs once.. (a long time ago) for a guy I used to know. He picked up the whole intake system at a swap meet here in the Detroit area. He already had a 426 Hemi on a engine stand ready to go in a Royal blue '66 Coronet convertible. Them Holley carbs flow 770 cfm a piece! . I hung out with a wild bunch of hoodlums and street racers back the late '70's...Did I have fun??..... You bet!!
