With a Surfboard, and what look like 2 Skate boards, I would Bet that Yes it is
an RC Helo.
And, Yes, I too would Love to find some of these!!!!

Actual car was a 50 though.
Larger parking lights and different trunk and side trim details.
Does Modelhaus offer the grill from the Aurora Mod Squad woody??
That would be correct.
And I have read that the MPC Snap Mecrusy Police kit has the 50 Side trim
I have the decals for this one too.
I have the Classic Metal Works Diecast (Likely what this kit is from)
In a Cream Close to that!!!
Might use the decals on it

Try this again!!!!
I LOVE this one!
One of my Favorite cars the Toronado!!
I have 3 of this kit. 2 are Jo-Han USA Oldies re-issues, the other an AMT boxed Original!
The AMT is a restoration project, the 2 Jo-Han are unbuilt.
I also have a 72 I have been trying to restore. Used parts from a 75/76 Eldorado
(All the front suspension)
I know Jo-Han issued the 66 First, but did they update it to 67 Spec's? or leave it as
a 66 And allow AMT to issue it with 67 box art??
My MPC 67 has the front corner side lights that the AMT boxed Jo-Han doesn't!!
I have a few of the Eldorados too
I built the 70 shortly after it was Re-issued, and have another unbuilt.
I have 2-3 unbuilt 76's too.
And a few 71-74's.
One will eventually be a 73 Indy Pace car!!
With a ll that I have, I don't recall paying much attention to the engine markings.
I would not be surprised to see them crossed over though.
Most of the rest of the chassis parts Are The same tool anyway!!!

I am almost betting, That Revell never had a problem with Firestone demanding Increased fees
It appears that most tires that are now Blank were All formerly Goodyear branded.
I have the Cali-Wheels issue of the 60 Impala has the Firestone Wide-White wall insert tires!!
Sadly, all issues of the 59 Impala have the Old Generic No tread detail white wall inserts
from OLD 50's/60's Monogram kits!!!
I have not been able to get a recent re-issue of either 59 Caddy kit. Did they remove the
BF Goodrich Silvertown labels on those??

Sounds like the same tires from the Cali Wheels issue of their 60 Impala.
I have one and they Are Firestones!!!
If the next version of this IS a Convert. I prefer a 50!!!
INDY 500 anyone?!!!!
