In Topic: 1/12 Doyusha Mach 1 Mustang 1972

There was a time when the majority of Fords had red oxide primered undercarriages, but the pictures I've provided here purport to show the results of a concours-level restoration of a '71 Mach 1 with the undercarriage done in black.  I'll let the Ford experts chime in on that.  In the meantime, here are 72 pictures showing most of the pertinent aspects of the car.  





If you don't mind me asking, how much did that '71 Mustang sell for?

 It's a small block chevy motor. probably Those are popular. I am building that kit also and it's a  327ci motor.  I am not using the motor from the kit, I replaced it with a Ford 289ci. from a 94 Mustang kit.  The ford motor looks more natural I think but then I am a ford guy! Bleed Ford blue!

A good pic of a 1:1 67 gt. Notice the chrome bottom rockers, and the chrome trim is missing. It didn't come on every GT fastback!.
They were only on special trim levels, so not all GT fastbacks had the chrome trim on the wheel wells, the trunk surround, and the hood surround and the rocker panels.  You could get this trim level but it was an extra 800 bucks or more.  So in reality AMT when they made this kit were actually using a less expensive model to make their models from it.  Since it was manufactured in 1994 it is surprising that even as much detail that did come in the kit was there. Afterall, 27 years had passed since the car was new in 67' so there was allot that wasn't correct on the kit car!
I just finished exactly the same kit and I had numerous problems with fit. I won't post pics of it here because I was very unhappy with the way it all came together. Little things that just irritate is all!
