Re: 68 motion chevelle

I have only seen the 68 baldwin chevelle as a model car. I have pix of somebodies 69 baldwin clone that IMHO was very well done. Not my pix, from a St. Louis area show. Black w/ red stripes w/ the hood and the stage three ignition boxes and everything, very well done. Wish I would have got to talk to the guy that owned it.

Re: 68 motion chevelle

I think this car in the magazine is the same 68 Motion Chevelle that was built by Motion as a race car. The magazine picture may have been taken before the race car paint job was done. (unless there were 2 black 68 Motion Chevelles but I don't think so)

The 68 Motion Chevelle Ertl diecast of a black 68 Motion Chevelle race car was made from pictures of a real car. This car was built for an overseas Motion customer.
Joel used to work with Ertl to make the diecast Motion cars from real Motion pictures.

Joel gave me a signed picture of the black 68 Motion Chevelle race car. This picture looks weird because it is a picture that Ertl enlarged from a original picture that Joel gave them to work with.

Joel has a company now called Motion Models that sells military models so he was really detailed about making the Ertl cars right. The first Motion Ertl cars are made from real cars but I think later on Ertl made some that were not real cars.

here is a picture of the photo Joel gave me and the 68 Motion Chevelle Ertl.
Both are signed by Mr Motion

Re: 68 motion chevelle

i have an older magazine "cars" that had a build up of a motion modified chevelle. the car had a transplant 427. the owner kept the car stock looking with the 396 badges as he hoped to pick up a little cash on the streets. mike

Re: 68 motion chevelle

No Jeff. Needless to say, I saw the car, photographed it and ran back to my tent on this year's Hot Rod Power Tour. All I can say is that the owner is a hardcore hot rodder! It was raining cats and dogs that day in Madison WI. I love seeing our cars taking a beating by mother nature and still doing their duty keeping us warm and dry!

Re: 68 motion chevelle

nice looking 68 but as far a original details I don't think Motion used that type of pointed side stripe until 1970.
