Anyone know where I might get an AMC straight 6, either from a kit or resin that would fit in the daisy duke CJ5 Jeep. Sorry, building a replica :unsure:

Except for the kits allready mentioned the MPC/AMT '69 Olds chassis also works under the '70 Jo-Han Olds 442.

The AMT '68 Roadrunner/'69 GTX/'70 Coronet chassis works under the Jo-Han '69 Road Runner and '70 Superbird...and all other B and E-bodies in 1:25th scale with slight modifications.

The Lindberg '64 Dodge and Plymouth chassis works under the Jo-Han '62-'63 Plymouths and Dodges if you modify them slightly.

The AMT '60 Starliner chassis and floor pan works under the less detailed AMT '63½ and '64 Galaxies and Mercurys with some trimming.

The AMT '67 Mustang and Shelby chassis works under the less detailed AMT '68 Shelby and other Mustangs...and Falcons as the Mustang is related chassis wise to The Falcon...and the AMT '64 Mercury Comet Caliente as the Comet also are based on a modified Falcon chassis.

The '62-65 Fairlane doesn't share chassis with any other car so it's not correct under a '64 Comet Caliente but it works if you're not that picky.
The '66 Fairlane chassis looks to be very close to Torino so it might work as a donator.

Revell's 65 Mustang chassis and engine bay is almost a direct fit into AMT's 69 Cougar.

^What he said. It's a really nice engine too- better than the rest of the kit, IMHO.

Sorry double post. At any rate someone posted that the 67 chevelle chassis would fit under an AMT 55 chevy post like it was made for it. I don't see an AMT 55 chevy post on tower's website. Would this chassis work under any of the tri five chevys including the nomads from all the manufacturers? Thank you.

I know the Pro Street Chevelle from Revell fits under the AMT 57 Chevy pretty danged good. I put one under mine with little to no trimming at all.

It should work. I don't know if it would work under a Nomad. I think the Nomad has a little longer wheelbase. There's three AMT '55s on Spotlight's site for $23 if you really want an AMT '55. I'm sure you can find them cheaper on ebay though.

JUst for your info on the 1968 Road Runner chassis. Chrysler used that chassis on every B-body Plymouth and Dodge from 1962 - 1974.
