I'm posting this, to give hope to all the guys and gals here, who are looking for something specific, which always seems to slip away, due to too being to late or too darn expensive....
Almost ten years ago, I won an auction on a original Mpc 4x4 Ford Van, but when I got it, it was a mix of two kits, all except the chassis was Mpc Van, the rolling chassis was Amt Ford pickup.
The purchase wasn't a total loss, due to having a Amt pickup, with a glue bomb chassis, but I really wanted a complete van.
Now fast forward to the present times, a week or two ago, on ebay I found an Mpc van with a body which seemed twisted beyond repair, I asked the seller if the kit contained a complete rolling chassis, he said yes.
I waited for the last seconds of the auction to put in my bid, which was under $10, and to my surprise won the auction.
Picked up my parts kit at the PO last Saturday, so now have a complete MPC 4X4 Van, and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg (I'm sure you all have seen that expensive parts-seller on ebay ;^)
