Looking for the car my dad had when I was a kid, looks like AMT did not do a 1963 Wildcat, wondering if anyone has done one in resin.
Thanks,
Dave

I remember a H/T promo, but it has been years since I've seen one.

Bummer. any of the resin manufacturers like Modelhaus or R&R interested in this classic? would love to get a body or complete kit since the frame & suspension from a 1963 Impala would probably work but the interior, wheels & engine are completely different.

I'm pretty shure AMT did only the Electra for '63.
The first cvt I ever rode in was my father's '63 LeSabre. I'd like to do one but I've only seen the Electra, which would require a lot of bodywork ,, the tail was completely different between the Electra and LeS./Wildcat.

,, never heard of one in resin either ,, or I'd have it.

I think that had the "X" frame with the driveshaft passing through it.
