Just wondering has anyone ever built this car or seen it ? The 2Dr. HT version, not the 2dr. sedan. I remember seeing someone post a problem with the body at one time. Kinda wanted to buy it if the problem wasn't a big deal. But wanted to ask around 1st.

I have seen the kit in person,While I was at his shop visiting him,And it can be built into a nice car with some time,I would say go for it and buy one.

Hopefully the 65 is a better piece than the 67 Plymouth wagon of theirs I purchased.

I probably have more R&R stuff than any other resin product, and I can tell you R&R's casting quality seems to vary quite wildly- I'd say it averages somewhere between 'poor' and 'partly cloudy'. I've built three of the '57 IH pickup kits- the first two were horrible, while the third was actually pretty good- way fewer huge pinholes and thin spots, and much less distortion in the castings. But yeah- I'd avoid an R&R piece for a first-time resin project!
