Interesting that the box doesn't call it an SS.

I'm hoping it's not.  Real car wasn't.  

 

Pro Street kit is quite a bit different, but I think there are some shared parts. Both had the display SBC, right?  Been a long time since I saw one of the originals.  

 I hope Pro Stocks, Super Stocks, and Junior Stocks are going to be hot subjects for a while...

Yeah, why not.  We got previous issues for the SS.  They actually tool up a rearview mirror for this one, too, it's golden.

No rearview, but it will have decals for the all-white car.  Body will not be de-SSed, and I'm waiting to hear if there might possibly be a no-SS badge grille tooled up, but since they didn't do a rearview, I doubt it.  Still doesn't bother me, I can live with it either way.

Eh, good enough. Can cast up or use a parts box mirror like befo', can sand off SS bits.  Grille might be tricky, but steelie wheels, Grumpy graphics, and a bench will make it all up 'n then some...

The grille illustration on the new box art mock up actually kind of resembles a '67 grille more than a '66.

I have 2 of the original stock issues and 3 of the pro street versions  . Plus I just picked up a set of aftermkt decals to do this very car.

 

So about the only thing I would buy any more of them for would be the neat box art and / OR a non SS grille.

 

I can't think of any other popular drag version back then , although I'm sure there were some.

I hope so, it'd be nice to see a '56 Sedan Delivery, ala John Diana, from Revell, wouldn't take a lot to do it either,

Awesome. Between my father, brother and I we have built over 100 of these kits over the years. This will just add to the build total. Way to go Round2.

I'd like to see a lot of Junior Stock kits.  I think I read more about them than any other cars in Hot Rod back in the late '60's/early '70's.

I guess I can remove those decals off of my 'to buy' list. Any idea when this baby will be released?

Nothing firm yet.  Summer or early fall would be my guess.

Yep, it'll have both versions, Grumpy's Toy I (red and white) and Grumpy's Toy II (all-white).

I like the phantom retro box art...

 

I'm digging the so-called "Faux-Retro" box art

 

Sound like this one'll be packaged in the "flat" Original Art series box with the art print included, just like the '76 Gremlin and Opel GT:

 

Retro-Deluxe 1966 AMT packaging style with all-new painting of Jenkins' Nova

It'll be in the normal square box, no art print in this one.

Oops, you're right. The painting is included on the box not in the box.  -_-

Well if i have to actually sand off the emblems on the body i doubt i will get this kit that is too much like work for me .

And no rearview mirror ,what are they thinking this is just crazy i will never buy another chevy II from Round 2 ever again

 

(This is nothing but PURE SARCASM and really a joke ) but i will have at least one then i can cast the new bits and use the other decals for one of the 6 i have stashed
