Only from Lindberg! "Slick Slacks"? With a belt buckle on the doors??  :)

 

Is that part painted orange, Bob, or molded in orange?

That 'Slick Slacks' kit is wild...I built a  couple of Lindberg small scale (1:32nd?) rods in the '70s as a kid, looks like they may have been in the same series...a 33/34

Ford phaeton IIRC..

Sorry Guys, I'm old and have selective memory! I think that grille shell is from Denny McLains horse hide hauler.

That's right Glenn !  I can't believe you have that model ,  I've never seen one !   I have the Surf 'n Van ( 2nd photo )  which was the other kit with the same parts .

   Edit -  Both kits were released in 1969 .  The Surf 'n Van was the second issue and was identical except for the box art and decals .

I'll post one to keep the ball rolling if that's OK, Glenn?

 

This one's a two-fer, so to speak:

Yea Casey go for it. This is weird, Toronado? Or maybe Fiero? Or pehaps an import, based upon the shape of the sprue?

Too early for a hint...but you're kind of on the right track.

It's a Toronado/Eldorado transaxel. The pan's a dead giveaway but it looks like it's from some kind of snap kit, not a JoHan ot MPC Toro or Eldo at least.

 

Mid-engine Corvette maybe?

 

Correct. Monogram Aerovette transaxle:

I was a bit puzzled when I found it alongside a SMC in the parts lot I got, but it's kind of neat.

 

You're up, Steve,

 That looks pretty interesting . . .  Maybe a VW or Corvair conversion could be done with it .
