Is it 1/24 or larger scale?


I think it's too early for a clue after only one guess.

that looks bigger than 1/24 , 1/25 to me unless that is a very fine weave carpet , I think it's more like 1/16 , possibly 1/12 . my guess is maybe one of the 1/16 minicraft model A fords .

Nope not from an AMT kit...and the pic was taken on a towel, not carpeting, but you're both on to something. ;)

No and no.

It's larger than 1/24 scale, and both sidewalls are almost exactly the same. There is one very small difference (which may be a future hint), but for all intents and purposes, they are the same.

Lindberg Bullhorn Tee.


I think this slick came from a built up of the earlier Pyro Tee N T, but the parts are identical to the later Lindberg Bull Horn T versions:

Is the chassis the wheel and tire are shown mounted to from the same kit?

That looks like a two-piece, hard plastic tire, but I don't recognize the wheel (especially the hub area) at all...MPC Scorpion, maybe?

Steve is correct on the tire. The tire and wheel are in the same kit.

Yup. The vintage is correct, but the kit is wrong. Pay attention to the front wheels. HInt: look at the chassis, it might help.
