I see they retooled the hood for the Orange Crate! The last reissue had a resin one in it.

I think all of the reissues are great, I want to get the Orange Crate myself. The only complaint I have are the rear lights on the Chevelle, I think they should retool and replace them with the stock ones.

X2! All they would have to do is give us the tail panel and rear bumper from the stock version. That's the very reason I use them for parts donors.

The decal sheet for the KS Pittman Willys is fantastic. I don't think I've ever seen a decal for an injector scoop opening cover. :o

Hey, I got an AM Grand Sport kit, but mine's got a different hood scoop than the one I keep seeing. The scoop is more square with rectangular intakes, and plastic grills that go over the openings. Has anyone seen any pics of a real car with that scoop?

How did Revell branding on the Grand Sport happen? Was Accurate Miniatures bought out by Revell?

That is a correct set up for the 1963 Nassau Speed Weeks races. I just got another kit like yours off of Ebay for $8 but no decals and no PE. VRM has decals for it though. Here's some photos and a lot of other cool shots.

Its in the Flikr Dave Friedman collection. Look under 1963

Yes, I guess you could call them spindles. The front suspension is molded as one piece- lower control arms, spindles, steering knuckles, etc. The spindles are basically a place for the wheel backs to attach to.

I was wondering if it was going to be like the AMT Nova Prostreet because one spindle wouldn't fit in one of the backings to the fron tire than it broke.

The Revell '67 Chevelle's spindles are pretty sturdy if I remember correctly. The upper control arms, which are separate pieces, support the top of the spindle, and the wheel back fit the spindles very well, just like most Revell kits since 1990 or so.

I have had more problems with the delicate rear end of this kit than the front end. The AMT Nova and Revell Chevelle are 2 totally different kits and the only similarities are the pro street nature of them.

Yep, that's the one, probably from the same seller. Can't complain for $8. :)
