Me too, I hope they include the option to back date it to a '69! That would be awesome.

Joe, I will also want you to order this one when they become available for purchase -

Both of these kits look fun as heck to build! I remember the van when I was a kid, but I did not build it. It was my uncles I think.

You know what that would go nicely with that Econoline kit Mike?

Joe when I was in your shop last to pick up the 1/16th mustang kit....... I was shocked by all the new product. The larger scale RC's are sooooo tempting.

 

But one thing caught my eye......It was a crawler.... like a old orange toyota pick up truck..... I wanted it..... it was like $900! WTF! lol!!! Way to much for me. But very soon, I want to get me a nice crawler.

Ah, that was the reissue of the legendary Hilux/Mountaineer, all metal ladder frame, cast metal axles, metal cased 3 speed trans, ABS Toyota pickup body (with a full bed instead of a prototypically correct half rotted away one :P ) Mind blowing little truck, basket case originals at one time were selling for nearly as much as the reissue is and NIB original was going for thousands!

Sorry to tell you this Glenn, you can go to Round 2s web site and see the instructions. No optional parts to back date it to a '69. I personally like the '69 AMX better than the '70. But back in the day, like most model car kit tools it was updated to the next year, until the real car got a total redesign. Then the tooling would be stuck there for any reissues. Even though I like the '69 better, I'm still glad to see the '70. And plan on buying one.
