Looks like I'll have to get a Grand Am and a GTO. I'm looking forward to this offering.

Well. Alan,
Be aware that the Curtiss Conqueror aircraft engine was a V12, NOT a V24! I helped my uncle deliver a Conqueror crate motor to Purdue University's Aviation Technology school back in the early 1970's when my Uncle Charlie located it in Minnesota--for the restoration of the Curtiss P26 Biplane fighter they restored for the USAF Museum at Wright Patterson AFB in Fairborn, OH. BTW, that engine was installed in the Duesenberg chassis for the so-called Mormon Meteor II.

Right you are Art! I was thinking of the 12 pipes on each side instead of the actual number of cylinders. :blink:

A Facel Vega? Awesome. The fastest car of its time! French design, Hemi powered - no way to lose. Unless you drive it into a tree.

Curbside? Chassis? Tell us more...


Hi Erik,
I need to do a bit more research on the Facel Vega to see what the chassis looks like. All kits will have the option of seperate panels; ie hood, trunk lid, doors so they can be built with whatever detail level you want. :)

Hey Chuck..........it's in the 2nd photo at the beginning of this thread. I'm working on the engine & photoetch right now. It will probably be the first to see the light of day. :D

I used to have a 75 grand am, turned it into a Lemans after the original rubber nose piece vaporized into dust while traveling up I-135 one day. that day really sucked watching it simply blow away. Long before the UV protecting in the urethane was developed. Neat old A body GM's. Might just have to look into getting one of your castings for "old times sakes". BTW your products are great!

How are you going to hide that from Mrs. Danno ? :lol: :lol: :lol:


You are going to need to get Mrs. Danno another job to pay for these kits!

Thanks for the kind words BK........I don't think the nose piece will vaporize this time!

I'll post on here as this & the other cars become available. Don't know pricing yet but it won't be too high.

Thanks for asking!

I have no idea why, but I've always wanted that car in kit form.
