69 GTX Hemi Tubbed

I'm WAY out of my realm on this one. It started as a stock 69 GTX (AMT) with the basic 440....but I did have that 70 Super Bee chassis left over. So, after making the body of the GTX as stock as possible, I went the way of monochrome for the chassis, making everything but the exhaust and transmission the same GoMango color of the GTX. The hood scoop is from the Lindy 64 Dodge kit. I added the roll bar and A-100 seats from the 64 Lindberg Plymouth and wanted to stay with the stock theme for the exterior so I cut down the Super Bee kits deep well wheels and substituted the Magnum 500 centers for the rear. The Magnum 500's reside on the Mickey Thompson street tires from the Super Bee tubbed kit. I then made up a tach and A-pillar gauges for the interior. Like I said, I'm WAY out of my realm on this...there are so many better builds in this area. Should I just stay with 'Factory Stock?'

The Hemi does have a few different oddities...I used a dual distributor, and made the intake into a high rise, but kept with a stock theme with the air cleaner and ram air system.

The doctor is in...  Good to see you posting up your stuff again, I've wondered when we might see some pontificating from our in house PhD,LOL.  As usual , other than the setting it's hard to tell this is not 1:1.  Amazingly clean build.

By the way , NO!  For what it's worth I think many of us "Hackers" admire the ability to do the factory stock.  I view that type build as the ultimate in patience and skill.  Keep doing what you  do and come build a hot rod some time.  Whatever you build, keep sharing them.

Somehow big tubs and factory stock just don't seem to go together.

If I spent as much time building as I do on the forum, I'd get a lot more done!

I can't see anything wrong with this build, Doc. I go out of my realm from time to time on things I don't know much about. I think you did an excellent job on this car. Looks good to me!
