I had a green nova I believe it was that came with an extra block and stand. It had max rat decals if I remember correctly. I'm not sure of company that made it or the year it was made but I believe it was monogram. It was a pro stock . Anybody with info on this kit?

AMT had a 66 Nova kit that included a bare small block and engine stand. Revell had a 67 Chevelle kit that had Max Rat decals and was molded in lime green and was a pro street kit. Both of those kits are fairly common and should be easy to find.

that was actually a 67 Chevelle that was issued in the early 90's or late 80's... Unless you are wanting that specific kit with the decals and all the reissues are pretty easy to come by for a reasonable price... There is usually a few on Ebay at about any given time... http://www.ebay.com/...=item5aef7302bchttp://www.ebay.com/...=item5aef7302bc

It comes up from time to time... I want one too ;). Make a saved search on the bay and have it email you when it finds one.

Hey Allen I think the kit you're looking for is the Revell Malibu Pro Street. I was molded in the lime green with the Max Rat decals. Heres a pic i

found of it. There a few on ebay with buy it now.

Probably Revell malibu SS pro street, or Revell 67 malibu, or just Malibu1/25 scale should do it.
