main differences from the original Badman, is of course the body
shell: originally the 'Bel Air' style...(no 'B' pillar, fancier
chrome side trim,roof trim, two tone paint...on Stock car).
original Badman hood scoop is much larger than on the 'II', and
the original had a straight 'tube' front axle set up in dragster/funny
car style, while the 'II' has stock upper/lower 'A' arms with coil
Badman had shaved deck lid, while the Badman II, still has stock
chrome deck Emblem.
the + side...Badman II' has the big block motor (finally); and the
interior has molded Headliner. This is something I tried to get
then to do for a long time. Normally, they would mold front/rear
window 'glass' connected by smooth section that fit up under the
Green House (roof), which when you looked in through the side window
openings, looked hokey to me...unfinished - and I suggested they
modify that part by cutting in either tuck and roll (for Hot Rods),
or stock headliner sections for stock cars. So,to save bucks, they
utilized the Chevy 'Two Ten' 2-door sedan, which was first used
with the "American Graffiti" Trilogy of cars: the yellow '32 Ford
Coupe, White '56 Ford 'T bird, and the Black '55 Chevy (bad guy
driven by Harrison Ford in the movie)."
