I built this Jo-Han '70 Oldsmobile box stock in 2003. I forget where I found this kit, but was thrilled to get it and get it cheap, I think around $10 - $15.

 

It's not much to look at and Jo-Han didn't offer as much detail as AMT, Revell or even MPC, but I did love their kits. 

 

The body was painted a nice late 60's, early 70's green and the engine compartment flat black. The engine was painted red, even though it's hard to see here in this photo.

 

Sadly, this guy fell off the shelf a few years ago and a small piece of the rear quarter panel chipped off.

Thanks Mangodart. I'd love to have some more of these old Jo-Han kits.
