No more guesses?  You're all in the right area... early '60s AMT FoMoCo.

The T-Bird ,  Continental ,  and Monterey  were the only ones I could find with a top like that .  It had to be one of them !

 

I'll have to look for something to post .

Are you sure it is the '61 Mercury convertible? Here's the half top from my '61 Merc kit. I think the part in your picture might be from the '61 Lincoln Continental convertible kit, but I'm not 100% sure.

Don ,  I don't have any of the kits , just these pictures .  Yours is definitely the Merc ,  it's hard to tell if the other two are the same or not .

 Anyway ,  to continue on . . .

 

  What is this and what kit is it from ?

OK, apologies if I misidentified the top.  It came to me with a '61 Merc and the other custom parts appear to be from the original kit, comparing with the instructions, so I ASSumed the top was.

 

^ '59 Pontiac hubcap?

No harm done ,  it can get tricky sometimes .  I posted a wheel that I thought was one-of-a-kind that ended up being in 3 or 4 kits !

 

Here's another one .  You guessed " 1959 Pontiac hubcap " so I went on line and found this photo which is definitely the same hubcap ,  only the one I posted isn't from a 1959 Pontiac kit ( is there one ? ) .

  Can you guess what kit mine is from ?

I just did a quick search and found there is an AMT '59 Pontiac kit with the identical hubcap in it !

My mistake ( again ) ,  mine was in the '62 Buick Electra 225 kit .  This can get confusing !

 

Your turn dodgefever !

I forgot they were in the '62 Buick!  I just dug out my '59 Pontiac to compare and they're slightly different from the ones in the Buick kit, but obviously meant to be the same cap.

Anyway... here's another part, probably an easy one.

OK, your turn.  That isn't the one I have, but it shares most of its parts.  I have the Frog issue:

Can you get a little closer ? :lol:

 

It looks like resin .  Is it a copy of a part or is it from a resin kit ?
