Ha!  I was bidding on that one too. Didn't get it either.  I did win the Opel Cadet though!  And the '67 Dart conversion kit.

The previous one they listed ended on January 26th, so they'll probably list another this week.

Yes, I thought I recognized the product as AFX.  No mention of it in the auctions.  I won the Opel Cadet gasser. I'm hoping to build it more stock though.  Does anyone have that one  and can give an opinion?

I have a couple of his bodies and Yes it is AFXNScale is the manufacturer.  No complaints on anything I've bought yet . I have  a 68 Dart funny car , 69 and 1970 Firebird funnycar bodies and the sixpack hood for the 69 roadrunner.

 

But like mentioned I think it's a consignment seller. They may lay off a particular item your after for a week or so,,,but just add him to your favorite  sellers list and you get emails when they list new items.

For the Opel Kadett body, maybe start with the soon to be reissued AMT Opel GT kit.

The reason there is no mention of it in the auctions is because of the poor reputation that Wendall (AF/X) has that he hides behind this Ebay name... He has been kicked off of Ebay under several different names... He also sell his stuff through family members on Ebay so when you are buying these products you are rolling the dice on if you will get it... History with them shows they go along pretty good for a while then all of a sudden they disappear...

I bought my resin Dart sedan body from rdsxfan2 on the Bay sometime last year. It came very quickly and I was pleased with the quality. Mine is under construction becoming a 4 door sedan.

John, I scratch built the front bench seat from a rear seat, and I ordered the 67 conversion (grill and tail lights)with the body several years ago from Wendell (AFXnScale)

I also won the 68' GTO Funny Car body to make a Tempest or Lemans out of.....Nice body...and it's 1/25scale.

Thanks for your reply :) .

Stupid question time ; how did you replicate the 1967 upholstery pattern ; and , are you going to modify / scratch build the door panels ?

 

Hopefully Revell will backdate their gorgeous 1969-come-1968 Dart GTS to a 1967 GT/ GTS ; or perhaps Missing Link will cast up a conversion kit ( grille , tail lights / panel , seating and door panels ) .

This was the body that took aver 8 months and threats of reporting him to E-Bay that got me MY 68 GTO. I built it stock after opening up the hood. It would be NICE if the added the 68 ONLY Dashboard! I got mine from Steve Mullberry, the guys a GREAT modeler and forum brother!
