    Do any models of these cars exist in 1:24 or bigger? I have some 68 notch but they are small hot wheels ones.

        I've never seen a notchback kit, in any scale. Fastbacks yes, never a notch, so resin body on a donor kit is the only option that I know of. I plan on recreating my notch this winter.. but as mine is a '69 with a '68 hood and front I'm going to have to get creative.

        I’ve never seen any, so I made my own. I disassembled a Highway 61 fastback in 1/18th and modified it into a notchback. My dad had a new 68 back in the day so I modeled it after his and gave it to him as a gift. It’s a fair amount of work, but doable. I plan to do one more after I finish restoring my full size 68. I may have a photo back home on the cpu. If I can track it down, I’ll post a pic.

          Amazingly enough, I found some pics! The white fastback is what I started with. A Dremel, some liquid metal, and some body filler and you have a notchback.

              I was wondering if anyone would notice the weight! They actually worked really well. Can’t remember if I ate them or not...

                Hi guys, I bought a notchback Barracuda from Bandit Resins. Like someone else noted, you have to buy a MPC Barracuda kit and steal bumpers and other components. I will up load photos of it in progress if anyone would like to see how it is coming along. Thats the only option I know of as far as model notchbacks are concerned. Take care.

                  Does it have a hood at all? Does it have the bump on the front and does it look like a flat hood be used? Like the 67/68 hood

                  Magnumbarracuda, yes it has the bump on the front, I call it beaknose. No it did not come with a hood. You have to use the hood from the MPC kit. The hood from MPC comes very slightly ridged or molded up to match the front beaknose valance panel. Hope this helps. Any other questions, feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer, thanks.
