A very nice job on that old Mopar. I have one of those kits in my "stash" also and hope to build it one day.

The Lindberg chassis, a good fit!

Thanks fellas, the Lindberg chassis fits under all of them with a minimum of trimming, I will use one under the Johan Superbird, too!

Mr. Tom, love the '62, I'm using the same frame in mine. Just a suggestion for the superbird, maybe better to go with the Round 2 '68 roadrunner. It would be more in keeping with the era.

Thank you for looking and your comments, TW.I could us the AMT chassis, I have thought about, I have several of those as well, (the CoronetDodge is the same, too) It will boil down to abundance and price, really, as the chassis are the same. Mopar used it till the early 70's. The Lindberg is the white one on the right.

This looks great! Nice clean build. Question... Did you use the Johan interior tub? Or the Lindberg parts? I plan on doing a 62 Dodge drag cars with same chassis just not sure about the shallow intrior tub.

niijay, I used the Lindberg Plymouth chassis and the Lindberg Dodge interior. It is a tad narrower and fit real fine. Trimmed the sides down so it was level all the way across. Thanks for the comments, fellas!
