I'm getting a mid to late '60s vibe, but that may just be due to the Pure decal, which may or may not be from the same time period as the spoiler?

 

This looks close, but not too confident it's correct:

Mid to late 60's vibe is correct, decal from the same period. Not from a dragster tho. Its not molded in blue. This one is much smaller than the wing on the Jeb Allen digger. Big hint: this kit was issued once. Repeat, only once!

OK time for a hint. The kit was molded in dark orange, the only kit Ive seen in this color.

I want to guess it's from a Japanese manufacturer, like Otaki or Nichimo, as I recall they made a few late-'60s Can Am-ish kits.

Let me know when another hint is appropriate. I thought everyone knew this kit  :wacko:

I guess I'll kick myself when I find out.  Is it a full bodied passenger car, or something else?

Not "full bodied", not a race car.  HInt: had something to do with a spark plug. If that doesn't give it away, I'll just post a pic and someone else can go! Ya know, when the game gets too difficult, everyone gets bored or frustrated. I thought this would be a walk in the park compared to that Freuhauf Tanker hatch I posted. Its been 3 days. At 6-ish I'll post the pics. Some of you old guys might say " Oh geez, I remember that"

Thanks. Have to admit I didn't know it, but the spark plug clue made me think of that kit. I'll post something in a little while.

Ok, here's my part. It's not from the '55 Nomad kit.

I've never heard of that one - can't even find a box art image online!
