I did a search on this site to see how many '71 Challengers had been displayed here and I found a big, fat, zero!
Really? Well, I know that they not readily available as only MPC made them as annuals and then re-released sparsely. Anyway, I've had this box of parts for many years and I figured that I would finally complete this thing as an "amnesty" build. I have to free it from the bottom of my closet!
Here is the mish mosh of parts that I will try to make in to a decent car:
I have already removed the engine compartment from the Yankee Challenge kit and have grafted it into the MPC body. I originally intended to salvage as many parts from the MPC kit as possible, but many have disappeared over the 30 plus years that I have had this car, and some are actually worse than the AMT parts! Both kits have terribly inaccurate pieces.
My next dilemma is; how to build it? Stock, street/strip, or race car?
