I'm looking to build a regular Cutlass out of either the '69 W-30 kit or the Johan '70. Anybody doing the grilles, flat hood, etc for a conversion? I know Missing Link does a bench seat for the '69, but that's all I've found so far.

Doesn't the Jo Han 70 have the flat hood?

The Johan kit doesnt have the flat hood, it has the standard dual buldge hood that came on Cutlass S models and the standard non O.A.I. 442.The flat hood came on the Cutlass Supreme and 4 door hardtop models. It was flat all the way across with a chrome spear down the center, this is for 1970 models only.

The stock Cutlass grills for the 70' Can be made from the custom one's in the johan kit...just cut out the 442 grills ..And cut the custom grills to shape .....For the 69'  I used of all things....A disposable razor I found at a pharmacy....look for  the ones that are blue or pink in    color..Roughly cut a piece on the handle to shape....work with it untill it matches  the opening....Bare Metal them....Then paint the recesses black..And you now have 69' Cutlass grills...The same handle could also be used to make the 68' grill same exact spacing on the vertical bars in the grill.....On to the hoods...All of your fastback 2-door Cutlass/442's had the same hoods...Only the wagons,4-doors and the formal roof 70-72's had the hoods you're speaking of....The 69 was the same way...Only the wagons and 4-doors had the hoods you're speaking of....Hope this helps you.

:lol: Hi you can find that at Modelhause.Don has the trans kits for the Johan for the 70/72/73 and the flat hood with a little work will fit the Rev/Mon kit.I have them and they look realy good.

Check out Kenny overt Bandit Resins. He has a 68 olds post coupe in his catalog.i'm pretty sure it's 68. Could be a 69,but i THINK it'sa 68.
