The Union version came a few years before the 1996 SSP kit. Might be from 1991 or '92.

MPC made some really nice small-block Chevies with Turbo 350 automatics in the late '70s. Current kits with that set up are the MPC '80 Monte Carlo and '86 El Camino SS.

The chassis is secured to the body with 4 screws.Does that make it a promo or Snaptite?    002_zpsa8244229.jpg


I'm 99% sure it's the Snapfast kit. If you google "AMT 1996 Corvette" and look at the image search you can see what the promo looked like. It came in a black window box, had paint detailing, and a red interior. Same parts as your model, just decorated and assembled at the factory.

Think that actually might be the AMT Snapfast Plus '96 Corvette Collector Edition kit. I have one someplace and remember it being molded in a very uninspiring shade of gray. It was basically an unassembled promo without any of the paint detailing that was becoming more common as promo production moved to China.
