      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

          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...

            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
