I guess it's AMT '62 Chevrolet Bel Air. Never seen any other '62 Bubbletop Model Kits.

Yes the 62 bubble top has had many different boxes but all the same kit.

That's bad news. The parts fitment on the nose of this body has always been rubbish and my chopping of the roof hasn't helped. Looks like some more major front end work is needed.

Do you know if either of the 62 belair super stock kits have any different motors in them?

The engines are the same I believe. My dad has that Dave Strickler's Old Reliable '62 Chevy Super Stocker, but I don't have any experience of the Hayden Proffit's Super Stocker. But since the manufacturer is the same, I believe that there are no differences. Revell's new '62 Impala has different looking Super Stock Engine, but both are 60s style. If you are planning to do today's Super Stock engine, you have to do some modifications to those engines.
