   Here are the 68' Coronet builtups I aquired through the years.

The silver one, someone glued on the custom airscoop and custom grill that was included in the original kit.

The black one someone did it with stock hood, grill and used the optional Hurst wheels that came in the kit.

What's interesting are the different building options you had back in the day.

I would love to see this too! I have some parts of an original, body, interior, and exterior chrome, it is a nice car. I wonder why Monogram / Revell doesn't do to their 69 Super Bee like they have done with their 32 Fords, with body and engines. It seems like it would not be as hard as a new tool. I do think the 68 would be a good seller, either as a R/T or Super Bee.

Here is an order form for the MPC 69 Chargers and 68 Coronets. from back in the day.  Notice the large scale

wooden 68' Coronet model prototype and pictures of the models being packaged.

I would love to see this kit restored. Here is my builds based on resin kits.

I'm not 100% sure but I think this one was from Motor City Resin but I got it so long ago.
I used the AMT 68 Roadrunner for the chassis and engine.

68Supera.jpg
This one started out as a Modelhaus kit that I converted from a Coronet RT to a Super Bee.
Also used AMT 69 GTX for a 383 version.

Here is the pic of the Feverbee.  This was the 3rd version of the MPC 68' Coronet R/T.   The body and hood molded together.  This was the drag car with the Logghe chassis. 

Even if Round 2 just only found this, most of us would be happy.

Let's go back into the Way Back Machine , shall we ? Before the AMT Aherns-Fox Pumper wasn't ; The Mercer Raceabout as the Companion of the Stutz Bearcat . How can one exist without the other ? Prior to that debacle , the Pierce Silver Arrow . I gave up after growing old waiting for this relese . I bought the Mint Car off Evil Bait . Same as the Chrysler "Magnificent Turkey" . It was announced once upon a time . Let's not forget the '60 Ford Galaxie taking 10 years to make the Market place . Where is my '50 Studebaker ?? The AMT '50 Olds and the Stud dissappeared into oblivian as did both nameplates IMHO . There are more I just cannot recall .   Thanx ..
