i thinned down one of the donor A pillars from the GT500 and backed it with a styrene strip, glued it in; it looks pretty darn close once you remove the vent wing detail and cut back the windshield trim. i'm building up one of the GT500 front valances to see how it will work. i discovered that the GT500 interior tub is too wide in the cargo area to work with the IH chassis plate; the IH tubs have relief contours added to clear the rear wheelwell tubs on the chassis plate. i could probably bypass most of this work and use the late issue '67 kit for full detail but then i'd be losing the period feel of this kit.

Interesting thread, I'm glad I found it. I have the body of the Autolite Hi-Per Special. I think I'll see if i can gather up parts and build the darn thing...

Interesting..never seen the Autolite Special or Iron Horse kits.   Neither of those are the same as the 1:1 Mach 1 concept car that Greg posted, though.  Did AMT do a kit of that concept car?  I like the wheels...

Actually they are all based on the Mustang Mach One concept car. There was a kit of that but I can't find it.Just as many kits through the years lose and gain different parts this kit is no different. :(

Interesting....the front end doesn't look like the 1:1 concept, though.   Looks like a stock bumper.  Maybe AMT took some creative license..

Concept? Are youn talking about the "Mustang2" Concept?

That was originally toold by IMC back around 1965. Lindberg

re-issued it once or twice in the past 15 years.

The body is  Convertible, but comes with separate Coupe & Fastback roofs

That kit has ALL working features, Steering, Hood/Engine, Doors, Trunk.

I have an early 70's IMC re-issue I built new but need to restore,

and a Lindberg one I have not started yet.

 

I do not recognize any of these Late 60's AMT versions. I have never seen or had any

No, the Mach 1 concept car in post 28.   Didn't say anything about the Mustang II concept.

That link pretty much sums it up. Two (2 [II]) cars the Mach 1 (one {I] ) and the Mustang II (2 [Two]) just like model cars, slight changes through the years, headlights, wheels, tires and what have you. Do we really want to get going on the Cougar II http://www.carstylin...bordinat_cobra/(2[Two]) ?

I would rather see something new that has not already been kitted.That model has been re-issued as a drag car in the past. Did not sell well. Maybe now it would sell better.

THANKS !! You must have read my mind...I've just started rounding up bits for a late-model (2006) interpretation of this car. :)

 

I always liked the roofline and the fuel-fillers in the sail panels.

Speaking of something that needs to be kitted... How 'bout a 1/16th or 1/8th scale '40 Ford? Or maybe a '52 Plymouth? Or a 2014 Toyota 4Runner? Or... or... I guess I'm dreaming... I'll stop now.

I've always thought it looked out of proportion. Like someone had sat a Ferrari roofline on a Mustang. Maybe if it was sectioned a bit.

So Round2 could round up "ALL" of the pieces and give us one heck of a 3in1 kit.

 

Oooops, talked about this one once befor. http://www.modelcars...ic=53168&page=2  :o

 

Just thought that picture was too good to waste.

The only real problem with the design I see is that the nose sits too high. Move the wheel openings up in the fenders, and drop the nose. I think you'd like the results.

Wouldn't mind seeing this reissued in the stock form.  Neat wheels and other details.

I see what your saying but then your wheel arc would break into the body line that runs into the brake cooling duct. You'd have to end that line earlier, so the wheel arc could be moved up. You might be right. A few tweaks and it might be okay.
