I'm pretty sure its either the Model King reissued Funny Hugger Camaro or something derived from it.

These are the things its' not; MPC or Revell. It is not the Jo-han Pinto or Mustang. The rear end housing and seat are wrong for that.

I recognized the chassis from a kit I built in the 70's.

Found the instructions and they match.

AMT Nitro Charger kit T-179-6

It may not be the same body but the chassis is right.

I'll try to scan the instructions in later this weekend.

:) Hi Again
I thank all of you for your help. James W. You are the winner with the correct answer. Thank you for the instructions.
If you need anything PM me I'll try and help.
The kit is one number before the Charger funny car.
The number on the parts spru is T-1795 but the parts are the same. I had no idea what it was for.
Thank you.

If you know anyone looking for a chassis like this I will trade it. Just PM me.
I received it with some other parts I bought of EBay

I edited this to say. In the first picture I show on my post
it shows the part number on the bottom right of the chrome sprue.

Glad I could help Ernie. I recognized the central chassis and being the OCD that I am happen to have kept the directions all these years.

Those parts seem to be in really good condition. You should be able to get something out of them.

Happy modeling. :D
