Since the topic of four door kits came up, here are a few projects-to-be or projects in the works. All are resin kits.

Modelhaus 1960 Plymouth Savoy--complete kit

Posted Image

Promolite 1961 Plymouth Savoy--beautiful, but unfortunately, this is no longer available.

Posted Image

Modelhaus 1962 Chrysler Newport

Posted Image

R%R Vacuumcraft 1966-ish Checker Marathon--This is a tough kit to put together, with LOTS of fitting and filing, but it's the only one out there. This will be a beater Checker taxi.

Posted Image

Modelhaus 1975 Chevrolet Impala

Posted Image

R&R Vacuumcraft 1969 Plymouth Belvedere (conversion for AMT's '68 Roadrunner)

Posted Image

Revell '94 Chevy Impala SS--so far, I've cut the trunk out of a '91 Caprice and installed it. This will eventually be a 1996 Chevy Caprice. Lots of little changes--mirrors have to be pillar mounted, and there are others.

You can also modify the Impala SS trunk by filling in the spoiler "trough" with superglue and microballoons, as shown here. This will be a 1994 Caprice police cruiser.

Posted Image

This is an upgraded CMW/Testors 2001 Crown Victoria. Note that the trim has been removed from the front door. This has the light bar mounting holes filled, holes drilled for the pillar mounted spotlights, modified wheels, and other changes.

That oughta get you started.

Look on eBay for msmiteymouse.

Or you can search R&R (make sure you do it in caps).
