I was so excited in '87 when it was first released I bought four. I had a 1:1 '37 Coupe at the time. I sent off for my first resin coupe body for $35, at the time seemed like crazy money. I never liked the wheels and always wished it came with a flathead and other stock parts. I think the top has a scale 2" chop. Also I prefer 1/25 scale but, it is what it is. I just purchased two more recently so, I guess you could say I am a fan of the kit. It really builds into a neat vintage short track car also.

Something I've thought about- did anyone ever make a resin Fordor body for this kit?

I want to say I saw one in SAE or CM years ago, but can't say for sure. Frontier or Mad Dog Models, maybe?

I have built this one as well and have the coupe and roadster in my stash. By the way, if you wanted to go more traditional, I'm told the chassis and running gear from the Revellogram '40 pick-up can be modified to fit this body. They are both 1/24. It's what I'm planning on using for my roadster.

....Thanks Rob! Why didn't I think of this?

I wonder why Monogram deleted the louvered hood and hood sides.Only the original issue has these parts.

What does the original issue box-art look like? I'd really like to get a louverd hood for this. 3" chop, 1" channel, Corvette C5 chassis, 4-cam Ford 4.6.......

^^ It was almost exactly like this (without the "Fat Fendered" logo).

Thanks gman. I'll be looking for one. I assume that the "fat fendered" version doesn't have a louvered hood, even though it's pictured on the box. Is that correct?

Picked up the sedan and convert. w/ trailer and found platform is interchangeable. Having fun learning how to lower the suspension. Love the proportions.
