This one ?   vettergasser2.jpg

 

I personally think it's a really cool kit. It's got a bunch of good stuff, like a convert up-top, a hard top, a tonneau, a one-piece body with a separate windshield frame, a cut-down racing windshield, stock hood, hood with a blower cutout AND an optional scoop, a couple of grille and bumper options, and I THINK this is the one with actual springs for the front suspension. i honestly don't remember how well proportioned it is compared to the other 4-eyed Corvette offerings.

Anne:

I think that I mentioned this kit to you recently as part of the thread on the Monogram '57 Vette.

The MPC '56/'57 Vette and '60 Vette kits are the real deal!

I highly recommend them both.

RC2 reissued the MPC '60 a few years ago.  It was available only for a short time.  The reissue lacks the working front suspension, but the steering feature is still included.  Most, if not all, of the original 7-in-1 issue's optional parts are in the reissue.  Be advised that all of the various issues of the MPC '60 (7-in-1, and drag version with tilt front end) have the interior bucket from the MPC 1956/57 kit.  The '60 has a correct '60 instrument panel though.
