You must be losing it, Chuck. I got it from you in a trade for the '50 Nash.

Well let's get going, Chuck. I'd like to see it with some huge tires tucked under it.

A little history here: When AMT/Ertl first issued the '66 4-4-2 in the late '90s, the first batch of kits came with the non-W30 front bumper. This was quickly corrected.


Just wondering... does the Convertible kit have the non-W30 front bumper? I'm looking for a standard Cutlass bumper for an upcoming project.

Yes, I believe the convertible had the standard bumper. I believe the only
difference is the position/location of the parking lights.
in the outer corners of the slots in the bumper standard. Moved in-ward
to allow for the ram-air Scoops on the W-30 version.
All I did was cut them out & remount them o9n my hardtop.

I had several matched pairs of these kits for trade a few years ago.
Wish I still had a few now!
