Challenger T/A Questions
Posted by ScrubbyMonkey on Saturday, November 8, 2003 1:35 AM
Hey guys,
I've got an old kit of a 1970 Challenger T/A. Its an original from 1983, and if I remember correctly it's a Monogram kit (it's not right in front of me.) I really like the Challenger's and Cuda's, so I'd like to do this up, and the stock detail is just a bit dated. Question is, I'm having trouble finding reference photos for this car. Any ideas where I can find any. I live in the Southeast Michigan area, any recommendations on a place around me where I can pick something up?

Check Wally world for MOPAR Magazine....thumb through it in the store to see if it would have that particular car in there....also you may want to try a few of these websites:
http://www.worldwidemusclecars.com/super/inventory_mopar.html
Right now they dont have a T/A but they do have an R/T....check that site pretty reg....they always get new stuff online. Also you may want to start doing searches on the MOPAR WEBRING.....you may run across some photos that way. It seemed I had more favorites that might be of use but I cant find them right now I may have them stored on disk....I'll try to locate some more info for you.

Thanks guys...I'm planning on dropping in a resin motor kit, I'm also going to really do up the engine bay. Any ideas on where I can find a good replacement for the axle in that kit - the one that is with it is only the bottom half, and the rest is hollow or not molded, and id like something that looked a little better.

Thanks

Hi Shaun
The Revell AAR Cuda kit has an 8 3/4" rear end. The centre of the pot is hollow on the top side but the rest of the molding is fairly crisp. It should be invisible when in place but you could always fill the cavity with body filler and file to shape.
