One would think the color is a give away. Only thing that comes to  mind is Mopar.

Perhaps the Monogram Pie rod? At least that's what I think the name was.....

Nope, not Mopar. No radiator, either...

No, not Monogram, but it kind of falls between show rod and street driven. A famous customizer was involved, though.

Cool. The color through me off, it looked like the color plastic Monogram used in the Lil Coffin and a few other kits. Plus, my Station Wagon Buggy is molded in white.

 

Well, here is my next part. It's half a styrene tire.

Is that one of those that AMT had you glue onto a vinyl tire to make a wide oval?

Oh boy. I've seen styrene tires in Aurora, MPC, and AMT kits, but Polyglas usually means late '60s- early '70s, so I will throw out AMT '71 Camaro as my first guess.

MPC 70's Volares. The '77 Volare Road Runner definitly had them as the stock tire. The back 1/2 of the tires were molded attached to the wheel backs.

 

Steve is correct. These tires were in MPC's Plymouth Volare kits. The one on the picture is from a '77 annual, but I'm pretty sure they were in all the different variants.

 

Steve, you're next.
