Very nice. Don't understand what you mean by the kit felt cheap. This kit started AMT's comeback in 1988.

Amen !! There were a lot of delays after the kit was announced for release in Spring / Summer 1987 ; a year later , it was finally out ! The only black eye for an at-the-time-state-of-the-art kit :that stupid moulded-on-to-the-windshield interior rear view mirror ! Successive issues of this great kit were retooled sans mirror .

Heck , the best thing about this kit --other than its subject matter-- was that extra small block engine (in short block form) and its engine stand !

I'd buy a Ventura if they reissued one. But, I'd really like to see them reissue the Buick Century and Mercury Monarch.

Scott

I , too, have been wanting the Monarch ...

... just like I wanted it in March 1976 when my parents bought a brand new Ghia 2-door ( 351-W , etc. ) in silver with silver Landau top and cranberry red interior @!

With the exception of the Chrysler-badged  'C' bodies  ( New Yorker / 5th Ave , and Imperial ) 1969 was the last year for MoPar offering white seating / doorpanels with 'coloured' accents ( red , blue , green , and gold ) .

Some early literature showed the 1970 Duster with white / blue accents interior ! However , that same literature also mentioned that Rallye Wheels were standard on the 340 model (VS29) ; so , that early literature was only speculative . Same with the alleged Mod Top option for the then-new Duster ...

Didn't Round2 reissue this kit in 2008? :huh:

It was either this one , or its GMC relative (Titan 95) ...

Either way , that was 7 years ago already ( !!! ) . Time for a freshie ...
