Gene Snow's
RAMBUNCTIOUS
1965/66 Dodge Dart Funny Car

Built by: Scott Kapellusch

Speed City Resin Model # SC-29
1966 DART LONG NOSE AWB FUNNY CAR

One of my favorite drag cars of all time and one of the reasons I started Speed City.
To be able to build an accurate replica of this model was a 7 year journey and took 5 master models
to make before I could even attempt to build the model you see here.

Modifications to resin model:
Besides making the original master for this '66 Long Nose Dart Funny Car model (shown on the "In progress" Page 3).....
To make this particular Gene Snow Rambunctious Dart:
"Patch Panels" were installed (using Speed City instructions), all window trim removed, cowl vents filled,
door hinge inner panels, grill and modified front bumper molded to the nose, door handles removed, gas cap filled,
rear valance removed and front clip was re-cut and separated from body.

Speed City Parts added:
Front frame clip from '66 Barracuda Long Nose F/C
Goodyear Blue Streak 16" Slicks
Goodyear Blue Streak Skinny Front Tires
American Racing Front Mag Wheels
Halibrand (shallow dish) 16" Rear Mag Wheels

Paint:

Decals:
Commissioned "Whoopie Kat Decals" to do the "Rambunctious"decals for this Dart.
Helped with all reference photos and sizing to fit the body. Although the font for the Rambunctious letters were too narrow
When I got them, so I used another set of decals, off-set them on an 45 angle, connecting the black lines and brush painted
the Rambunctious letters in brass metallizer. Whoopie Kat "Silver Machine Turn" decals on all interior panels.


 

Charlie Allen's
ATLANTIC FLYER
1965/'66 Dart Funny Car

Built by: Scott Kapellusch

Built from 3- Speed City Resin Models:
*Gene Snow Rambunctious Dart (for the Body)
*
1966 Long Nose Dart F/C (for the Front clip)
*Charlie Allen's "Purple Terror" Dart
(for the Chassis, Interior tub, Cowl, Grill, front & rear bumpers & part of rear wheel well).

Body modifications:
To do an accurate version of this car, I started with the body of a '65 Dart Gene Snow Rambunctious body,
(since it had all the correct trim pieces). The B-Pillars were removed along with some of the window trim.
A rear Spoiler was made from a coke can. The front portions of the rear wheel wells from a Charlie Allen's
"Purple Terror" Dart were added (because the '65 Dart Rambunctious body has widened wheel wells).
The rear wheel wells were brought back to stock size, but with a cut out from the Charlie Allen "Purple Terror" Dart.
A Speed City '66 Long Nose Dart was needed for the front clip but the clip was shortened 8 scale inches to be 4" longer
than a stock '66 Dodge Dart. The cowl vents were filled in on the '65 Dart body and the hood was re-cut 2"
from the windshield almost half way into the hood and removed from the body. Hood supports were added to the bottom
of the hood and a new hole was cut for the blower. Hood supports were then added to the body of the front clip.
The front of the front wheel wells were re-cut so the wheels could be moved forward.
A new B-Pillar back up strip was added so the windows could be flush mounted.
Semi-hollow door handles were added to the body from a '66 Long Nose Dart. Rear window bracing was added
so the rear window could be flush mounted. The '66 Dart Grill had all the recess' filled in (to resemble a fiber glass grill),
and then the grill and front bumper was molded to the front clip (to resemble a fiber glass unit).

Hilborn Bug Catcher
Eaton G.M 14 bolt Rear End
