Here is a shot of the JL repop of the old Mint Edition casting of the 67 Fury . Different lighter shade of blue & I had to swap out those horrible wheels for something more realistic .. Its a straight recast , no changes made except for wheels & no chrome plating on bumpers ... Im sure I have different colors of the Racing Champions version . Will have to do some searching ....

Way better! Good choice with the white walls.
I 'm actually liking these plastic bases for axle swaps...much easier to dig out the axle.

To bad the rear qtrs sag downward on this casting...it kinda bums me out.

Way worse than that.

It's not the suspesion, it's the body itself sagging downward after the roof.
Pretty much unfixable. :cry::cry::cry:

Wait, wait, wait. This coming from the best body man down east? (or up west, or whatever you Mainiacs say) And a MOPAR lover to boot?

I always though pretty much anything was fixable depending upon the depths of the customer's pockets. ;)

After seeing your little black car, and how you moved the rear wheels forward and rear fender wheel openings forward, I think you are qualified to fix this body. If you choose to do this, it would be another feather in your cap. :p :wave:

On this car , when I drilled out the chassis , the wheels are held in by grooves in the interior & chassis . No grinding needed . Was super easy to swap wheels after chassis removal .. Just needed to find the right width axles ..
