1971 Dodge Demon..
Posted by Stangfreak2 on Friday, February 8, 2019 1:03 PM

I would absolutely "LOVE" to have this old MPC kit. Love to see MPC rerelease it, or some model company. One reason is I used to own a 1971 Dodge Demon 340 back in 74 and 75. Second is this car was only made for two years. 1971 and 1972. The 1971s were race cars in disguise. Them 340s were a force to be recconed with on the streets, but the government stepped in before 1972 and made car manufactures cut horsepower and compression in the muscle cars. There are two kits on ebay with about 19 or 20 bids on each. one for $238.00 and the other for $243.00... Way out of my price range...

Devil YUMMY ! 

Oh look , a PROPPER Demon. (Ahem.........)

Love yours with the Cragars . 

Is there anyone out there in 'resin parts land' that'll do front & rear end 'replacements' for a Duster kit I wonder ??  

I have seen Diecast ones ( Including Hot Wheels... ) Good luck with the search .

PS I did a search , found this place . I wonder what they specialise in .....Wink

I did find these pics there of a build by someone by the user ID of 68383 Mopar Maniac... Beautiful 72 Demon Pro Street build for sure. No doubt the Demons are out there somewhere...LOL

I must say I am extremely impressed with 68383 Mopar Maniac's gorgeous 72 Pro Street Demon build... Excellent job!!!Smile

Here is another 1/24th scale model 71 Dodge Demon I ran across several years ago. I lost the information about this build and can not remember who built it. It did inspire me to give my best shot to build my own. I got a 71 Duster model kit and a LA Dart model kit and got started. I cut the nose fron the 71 LA Dart and carefully attached it to the Duster body after I cut the nose from it. Surprisingly enough it came out better than I expected. I used thin tooth picks to change the tail lights to Demon style which also came out rather well. 
All~in ~ all, the build came out quite well and I used 1/4 inch pin stripe tape to cut the side stripes. It looked pretty dang good. I was always missing something on the front end that the LA Dart did not have on it, but can't remember... It has been sooooo long since I did this build I can't even remember what happen to it...LOL
Gettng old "SUCKS"...LOL
Anyway here is that gorgeoug build I ran across years ago of a 71 Demon to share here. I am sorry I can't remember the builders name or any info. on it, but it sure is GORGEOUS!!!

This is an awesome subject, and that purple Demon is an awesome build!  I have the kit you desire.  But it is now a disassembled "glue bomb" in excellent shape for a rebuild.  See, when I was a kid, pops bought a 71 Demon 225 six, which was the car I learned to drive in. So I have special memories.  Maybe today I will take a few photos of the kit in it's current condition just for fun and to add to this thread.

 

One thing to remember as you build your kit.  And I am not sure if the Dart kit has this feature, which the purple car does not...is the fender line on the front wheels doesn't match the back - it was designed in harmony with the rear of a Dart. Notice that on your yellow street car (awesome by the way!).  The Demon kit is wrong, and has a Duster fender opening, with Dart surface from forward of the wheelwell.

This is fun % P

I am enjoying this as well !

I have just had "a daft idea" of changing my Tom Daniel's Cop Out Duster Funnycar to a Demon in Tor Red with Stock decals .

I wonder if anyone out there ( Both meanings of the term..) has done a '70's Demon with a....

Ahem ...

modern 1000hp Challenger motor transplant .

And the green version of a mod top & interior.

Oh dear . Now Ive spoiled it ...

Of course some company will release a state of the art 1971 Demon model kit.. after all the search and sacrifice buying a sealed vintage one and all the effort kitbashing with AMT Duster parts.. it´s just a matter of time, as soon as I finish my projectBang Head

I believe that is Sean Svendsen's Demon. Look up Sven's World of Wheels (that is his website with a great gallery). Here is an old pic of my Demon in progress. I can't remember the name of the company, but it appears they just made a resin copy of that original Demon kit and you finish it off with parts from the AMT Duster (I had to shorten the chassis to get it to fit right). I've heard rumors of it coming out again.

It certainly would be nice if one of the kit manufacturers produced a new tool 1971 Dodge Demon 340, but I'm not getting my hopes up for it anytime soon.  Revell, are you listening?
