      Like I've said elsewhere, I can't build the real deal clone, but I'm happy with how mine is coming so far. thumbnail_IMG_7807.jpg thumbnail_IMG_7806.jpg thumbnail_IMG_7816.jpg

          ???

          Why is a clone not drivable?

          Per definition a clone is an exact copy of in this case a as delivered from Hurst Barracuda.
          And I meant (with a smile) these cars were HARDLY drivable...

            It's true, if you make a true clone, your running 4:88 gears with 1540 cfm carbs and a mech advance distributor running at full advance at 1,600 rpm, 12:5 compression pistons on race gas you are running at the edge of what's streetable. That what's I'm running, but I only driving it at the local cruise nights not too far from home. Nothing like hitting the throttle smoking the tires at ease. lol.

              A clone is to look like something else.

              You can’t see gear ratio, well-thought-out/realistic/reasonable cam specs, true pump gas compatible compression ratio, and cubic inches.
              .
              .
              .
              If you’re in a box, you can still think out of the box.

              I run the Stock carbs and a stock dual point distributor. I do run 3:55 gears, 11 to 1 with ported Edelbrock/Mopar heads. It’s stroked to 472ci. My Dart was in Mopar Muscle magazine a couple months ago and there is a complete brake down of what I got into it. Don’t get me wrong, I do like what you have done, nice car for sure.

                  Absolutely. I bet that´s a sweet ride. And with 3.55 in rear and 11 in comp I´m sure its comfortable to drive too.
                  Maybe we should invite the expression ALTERNATIVE CLONE, like some use alternative (read fake) news…
                  Anyhow car is nice, don´t get me wrong. And congrats to the article in MMM

                    I’m working on a Dart. A 68. It Started out as a big block Dart plan to use up spare parts, and a winter project to last several winters. Now it’s taking on the Superstock look. More and more, I’m being haunted by it needing a Hemi. Here’s where I’m at.

                    Bottom Is pretty much done.
                    169A985F-E419-4FD7-9DDA-D46F070DFB4B.jpeg

                    Dana housing is narrowed to fit the relocated springs and tubs.

                    Roll bar is in.

                    Sheet metal in place to properly line the new quarter panels.

                    Left side quarter installed, wheel opening done. Right side started. Wheel set in place for a visual. Fuel filler delete.

                    Fuel cell in place. Spare tire tub raised 3”.

                      Anybody know anything about the Hemi dart clone just listed...and removed from EBay? Wonder if it sold and for how much. Looked like a well detailed car.

                      Don't know anything about it, but if one was to build a true clone, I doubt they'd be truly happy with it. At about 8-9 dollars a gallon race fuel, cooling issues, stiff gears and no overdrive to compensate it'd get to be a bit much after awhile.
                      I built mine as something of a clone (see pics) and have been battling cooling issues since. Even Ron Davis (look him up) is kind of stumped as to how to get real reliable cooling with 800+ horses in such a small car, so like "Barracuda Dan" my trips are usually REAL short and sweet. Oh, I still enjoy & love the car but true cruiser, it ain't.....

                            It's grey. Epoxy primered, evercoat extreme build and primer surfacer have all been applied.

                            Bottom expoxy primed and sanded.

                            Evercoat extreme build applied to body, blocked, and primer surfacer applied and blocked.

                            Needs a bit more primer surfacer in a few spots. Hoping to do some trimming out with B5 Blue Pearl Coat within a few days. While the front fender / door gap looks a touch wide, it's not, just the angle of the camera.

                            Will be nice to get this sanding dust over with!
