I just picked up this kit in a collection I purchased, I can't seem to find any info on it anywhere. Does any one know any thing about it. I have been building and collecting kits for over 40 years and I have never seen it before. The kit is complete only some damage to the decals.

There your a couple of this sets in I believe early 60`s or late 60`s. There was a chevy team with a 63 Nova wagon with a chevy 2 on trailer this one there your also a couple with speed boats. I seen this kit go for 400 bucks or more I have a couple in my collection but they have them from when I was a kid so I didn`t pay the big bucks great find.

Fellas,

 

 Now you talk about a candidate for a reissue ?  A Ford vs. Chevy Match Race series...How about throwin' a Dodge/Plymouth team in there ?   A '67 Charger tow car w/trailer and a rear engined 'cuda drag car maybe ?

I sense shades of an R & C Super Stock article , circa 1963..........................

Most of the racing team sets were issued in '67 and '68, including that one.  Not many department stores carried the sets because of the higher price.  A lot of the ones I have seen on eBay have been messed with (cars or trailer replaced with later issue items) but this one appears to be all original.  The decal sheet in this one is unique.  Sometimes one or both of the cars in a set were available as individual kits alongside the set.  In those cases, the set usually had the sheet from one of the separate kits.  Good score!

1968 was a great year for box art - and the "drag" series was no exception. That is a valuable kit and rare to see in that condition! Nice find.
Interesting they include the "promo" style '64 Galaxie.

Man, I had that Chevy II combo, probably right when it came out. It so impressed me that it literally has been in some dreams I have had.

Have never seen any of those combos, but wouldn't mind any of them in my collection. Especially the Galaxy and Falcon kit.

I think the Nova wagon exists as the Boss Nova funny car, so not much chance of seeing that one returned to stock.  :(

I have seen the Chevelle/Impala and Nova/Nova wagon combo before. But, have never seen the Galaxie/Falcon combo before! I'll usually build anything regardless of age/rarity. But, even I couldn't bring myself to build that kit. That is one great score! These would be some cool kits for Round2 to reissue! The Impala/Chevelle combo would sell like hot cakes!
