It was on the car when I bought it. Year One sells oil stick and tubes. Thanks Part Number: A0186
Like I've said elsewhere, I can't build the real deal clone, but I'm happy with how mine is coming so far.
looks good enough to me !
Yes, and a clone is hardly even drivable
??? 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...
....I don’t know....mine is pretty driveable..
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.
Here is the next one I’m doing. I’m trying to have “Book ends”. Slowly but surly it’s getting there.
Yea but you can feel it.
Nice car , almost like looking in a mirror !~
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
