Tony, the "Pickle" was a very well done model!
it was an great improvement in fit and detail over the previous white Hemi car. the color is spot on.
I had the privilege (although I didn't know it at the time) of seeing this almost exact car back in 1969.
The Daytona I saw up close had the 440 engine, whitewall tires and road wheels. it was this color with white interior and a had a black tail stripe.

it was quite the crowd collector. The metallic green was almost electric in the sun. Not something to sneak past a traffic cop for sure.

The DM "Pickle" has very accurate detailing for a model of these cars, including the unique wing support bracketry inside the trunk.
It supported the wing on real cars.
They also included the scissors jack, that Chrysler added to jack up the nose section in the event of a flat tire.
The typical bumper jack would just not work, obviously.
