69 NASCAR fuel tank
Posted by Uncle Billiam on Monday, April 01, 2019 4:05 PM

Woiuld anyone be aware if there is a company that makes a resin/plastice 69 NASCAR fuel tank. I would build one of myself however I wouldn't know how to do the "cap" peice. Thank you ahead.

I'd also suggest a pic of one. I'm not a NASCAR fan but I may have seen one on a vendor site.

So I have to admit, after getting a ton of after market parts to get the model to a NASCAR style, I'm finding that what's in the box can't make an accurate model. No full roll cage and wrong tires to say the least. Wished I stuck to make this a factory stock version. Will not give up on it though. :-) Of course I'm referring to the 69 Charger-Superbird Revell Pro Modeler version.

 

Speaking of this, could anyone suggest a good donor kit for the roll cage? I've been thinking of the 1695 AMT Ford Galaxie

The reissue of the Donnie Allison MPC 1971 Mercury kit . I think it was within the last two years it was reissued, would be a great donor for the cage, the tires and even the fuel tank. I bet you could probably just use the whole chassis with a little modification. There are just not a lot of 60's thru 70's nascar kits out there.

No such thing as a "Charger Superbird" As the box states, it is a "Charger Daytona". Superbird is a Plymouth. Different car, different year.
