What "extra" did Jo-Han include in some early versions of the Cadillac V-16 and Mercedes-Benz classic car kits?

AMT released the 1925 Model T numerous times over the years. Other than a wheel/tire, or decal change, which ones were only released once?

Sometime in the 1970s, MPC made a kit called the Vette Gasser. Which kits did it share its basic chassis with?

If you're talking about this kit ,  it looks like a funny car chassis ,  which would be the same as most of the MPC Funny Car kits of that time .

This is the kit I'm referring to, but it doesn't use the chassis from any MPC funny car kits. It shares the basic chassis with two other MPC kits, and both have been reissued. What are they?

Correct, the second kit that used this basic chassis was the Bantam Blast. Casey got the other one, so I guess either of you can go next.
