Nice build, Ron.

Question: is the white insert in the seats a stock option? I saw a really nice '66 K-code convertible in Starmist Blue with the blue Pony interior, that was really sharp. I might build one of these like that, but the blue with the white and blue interior like yours is pretty cool.

Here You Go Charlie. Sorry for the long period if answering your question, as I have not seen this post until now.

It's hard to see in the parts shot but does the new coupe kit come with pony Interior?

I'm going out on a limb here ; I believe that this kit does have the Pony Interior ... Last time I saw the innerds of this kit was its 80's issue (circa 1985 for me) .

Using the aforementioned Cougar chassis (page 1) I built this movie replica from this kit. I think it was the release with the three sets of tires and a few custom parts.

I believe it did have a pony interior, but the inner door detail was poor and the seats are awful. I ended up replacing them from the parts box.

This was the release I used.

The original issue had a unique decal sheet with the Tasca Ford advertising thatwent on the sides for racing sponsorship. The driver's name, Bill Lawton was used on the sides as well. I have this box plus a few unused parts that belonged to my mother's younger brother. I got it from mom when she was cleaning her mother's farmhouse out a few months after her passing. An unusual option I found interesting about this kit was that it included plastic tire caps that could be glued to the tire sides and had spacers for the wheel centers. The car from this kit is long gone, but still has extras that i could use for other '66 Mustang kits to build all variations this one had to offer.
