I love how they used the Belgian flag for Germany on the decal sheet.

Cool review Chuck! Something I noticed on your build (cool looking BTW) was the strips on the roof. Does this kit come with a molded in vinyl roof?

It does have a simulated vinyl roof. It's just defined enough to look convincing under a few coats of paint, but just faint enough to be easily sanded away if you want a plain steel top- which many of these cars did have.

I didn't know this kit existed. Saw this post and decided I needed one and I was shocked to see how much they go for... Ouch!

Got mine for a pretty good price, unbuilt and completely intact. I'd really love to see it reissued. I really want to do a replica of Marilyn Manson's Tainted Love-Posted Image

Chuck:

These old kit reviews are worth their weigh in gold... really!!! Thank you!!!! The thing to remember here is that when you can find one these that are complete they are a trip down memory lane... generally well done (body) and lend themselves to a lot of different build options.... I just recently found a mint Jo-Han 60 Plymouth station wagon... well worth the price...similar Jrasic period components but so cool......... just like your car!!!!

Thanks for doing this review... this was a great kit and I did "mash" at least one very early on in my modeling career..... true confession...

Regards
Bill (Duntov)

Here are two pics of the box's long sides (not sure what happened to one of Chuck's pics?):
