i bought an old re issue of a 32 ford kit years ago sadly i no longer own the kit the only things i remember about the kit were ...
1. box art looked like from the 50's and it was the 32 on a drag strip.
2. the body and other parts were molded in dark purple
3. body was split right down the middle
4. molded rear end and almost a flat straight frame
5. tires were plastic and not rubber and had moon disk
6. im leaning towards saying its a old revell kit because my new 32 ford 5 window kit has the same flaming devil head in decal in the box
