I looked at DPMCC Instructions fotki and no luck. Also, only 2 69 Chevelle's.

The last re-issue & a drag version from about 69.

I have the Countdown Series '69 Chevelle convertible, basically the same parts as the Countdown Series '69 Chevelle ht (that issue had optional custom front and rear and no stock intake/carb/air cleaner parts, IIRC).   Differences being a convertible body and boot.   Oddly, that was the only issue of the '69 Chevelle conv AFAIK...I assume it was based on a promo body?

Rob, you are correct, it was based on the promo convertible body.  It was nicely done and this reissue will be very appreciated.  TIM

Yes, definitely looking forward to getting a couple of them..the one I have is a gluebomb.   Maybe they will release it in a neat retro '69 style box like the recent Hurst/Olds reissue.

The '69 Chevelle conv. is a great re-issue subject. All i have is a glue-bomb that i lack the ambition to fix. But fresh plastic is a different animal.

Thank you ROUND 2 !

Question:  What kit has an uptop that will fit this body properly ??

I wonder if that '69 Chevelle Convertible has the same goofy taillights as the coupe? They just don't look right to me.

 

I'm also curious if that Ranchero can be built stock or not.

 

The Demon would be a nice addition to the fleet, as well.

1/25 Dodge Dart Sportsman Race Car (Petty)

 

Wow, if this is the short-track, kit-car chassis 1970(?) Dart with an opening trunk, I'll be doing cartwheels down my street when it gets reissued!  I never thought we'd see this great little kit again.  They go for top-dollar on the auction sites.

 

I think this kit was originally-issued with the Ford Race-car Ramp truck in the early-1970's, then reissued once more as a kit by itself a couple of years after that.  So, it hasn't been on a store shelf since the mid-1970's!

I've got the Open Road Mini Motor Home, original Rescue Van, and '73 drag van annual kit. All three have separate hoods. Two have broken cowls, which led me to scare up a couple more of the early bodies (with the separate side panel inserts). Those have separate hoods too. The firewall in the Dirty Donny kit still has the notches where the original hood's vestigal "hinges" fit. I believe the hood was tooled into the body at the same time that the separate side panels were eliminated, which was for the Kandy-Van/Nirvana custom issues.
Recently, I built one of the Dirty Donny van kits. Among other modifications, I opened the hood. You can barely see the front of the engine, let alone the wiring. I won't glue the hoods shut on any of the early issue kits that I might build, but on the other hand I won't cut another later kit to get the opening hood. If I build any of the other customs (Sun Chaser, Xtasy, Foxy Box) those will probably get dark interiors and smoke-tint glass to keep things simple...

 

I have the '72 Strip n' Surf drag van, and it too has the separate hood. I also have a bagged Chevy van kit that I think is from a Penske Race Team. It has the separate side panels and an open hood.

Good news...it is the Swinger-bodied car with the separate trunklid.

The Round 2 public website always lags behind distributors and vendors...it's apparently fact based, as multiple vendors have these items listed.  Just have to wait and see, looks like it's going to be good year for reissues of long-gone kits and variations on more recent kits.

That'd be a good one, but I'd rather see the 1/25 MPC 1970 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler factory-stock kit reissued, but I expect that day will never come!  :(

I really want the MPC Cooters Tow Truck to be reissued.  Can't even touch one on Ebay.

Go to stevens hobby shop and go to amt listing. You will find a long list of new amt releases

 

...and some MPC releases, too:

 

 

MPC-796 1/25 Nascar 1971 Mercury Cyclone (Donnie Allison) $29.95 TBA

 

MPC-797 1/25 Chevy Blazer Truck (Snap) (New Tool) $24.95 TBA 

 

MPC-798 1/25 1975 Dodge Dart Sport $29.95 TBA 

 

MPC-799 1/25 1974 Barracuda (Snap) $24.95 TBA 

 

MPC-800 1/25 1967 Mustang Ohio George Malco Gasser Car $29.95 TBA

 

 

The Snap Blazer looks like the previously reissued Blazer kit from a few years ago, so maybe the "New Tool" label was intended for another kit?

This will be the Third issue of that Rescue Blazer and Fourth of the kit itself!!

 New Tool. NO Way

 

It was re-issue only a few years ago as a 75 Not showing, but including all

the rescue parts & decals Identical to the first Rescue  issue.

 

If they were going to re-tool it, why not make it a Full Glue kit??
