Saw one last night on Ebay. It's called the Moon Mixer. It's a weird little street rod with a space capsule shaped mixer. I looked it up to find pictures and found it's a variant of one of the kits I'm after: "Dr. Crooks Medicine Show". Check it out:

I snagged those images off eBay a few years ago, but it would be great to have a Chrysler boat to tow behind, well, a Chrsyler tow vehicle.

Some more images I found:

That "MAT-VEHICLE" is surprising. Under the stickers, it's a Mazda Cosmo (Mazda's first Wankel-powered car that hit the streets in 1967) - didn't know there was a kit.

Not a model....but not a toy....it's a nothing!!!!
How Ertl AMT allowed that kit to slip through is unbelievable!!
The interior was molded flat and you fold it up to create a bucket.....
Ertl owes us for that one still!!!

Those two images look like facing pages of a book, rather than box tops.

Casey you are correct. They are from an old Aurora catalog found here :http://www.majormattmason.net/aurora/

What the french toast!? And people will complain about the General Lee being offensive. I could see this flying when swastikas were fashionable with bikers, when the 1303 was new, but still...

What's the story on the MPC Chrysler 183 boat? Was that issued as a stand-alone kit?
