    The fella I got it from said it had a more modern 400 from 1971?

    Hey Rick - welcome - and you just answered my question to you in your other post. I've seen that car in Toronto at the movie lots for years. I tried to buy it a while ago but no luck. Glad it's gone to a good home!

    Hi & congrats on the purchase:thumbsup:

    If you need the front trim for the hood, I have a spare one that would fit right in with pitting included at no extra charge.:lol:

    An American Dodge that seems to have a newer motor, judging from the exhaust stove and the air cleaner.

    Movie car for sure. Real Chicago squad cars were sedans. All four doors were white as well as the trunk lid. Plus, around ‘65 ‘66, I remember a lot of Biscaynes. Cool car anyway....sorry, I have to correct myself. Just looked at a model I have and only the two front doors were white.
