1970 LTDs came with a steel roof unless an optional vinyl roof was ordered. I'm not 100% sure, but I think the LTD Broughams may have come with the vinyl roof as standard equipment. AMT's kit interior represents the non Brougham version. So the car can be correctly built without a vinyl roof.
Tim, I looked at your NNL pictures. Thanks for sharing them. I noticed a picture showing Round 2's upcoming Deora reissue. What do you know about this kit? Mainly, has the original tonneau bed cover been restored to this kit? And I'm assuming the above '70 Monte Carlo is not the old Motor City one. But, the one AMT tooled up in the 1990's or early 2000's?
Cool I'm looking forward to the Ventura. But, I noticed in Tim's photo a place card behind the Catalina announcing a wartime Dodge WC. What is this about Dave? And what scale will it be offered in? Also, totally off subject, what is the word on the Fantistic Voyage submarine model I've see mentioned on another site about a year ago?
Literally tonight I just finished building a '70 LTD hardtop, using Modlehaus parts and AMT's recent '70 Ford Police Car kit. I had the original kit back in 1970 and wanted another one. Since AMT did only minor changes when they converted their original '70 LTD to the Police Car. It was very easy to convert back. All you need are the correct hood, front bumper and grille, a rear bumper with the correct grille texture between the taillights, correct wheel covers, and whitewall tires. All of which Holthaus sells. Then you just cut out the sedan style window frames. The interior was not changed between the LTD and Police Car version. So nothing is needed there. And bingo. You've got a '70 Ford LTD four-door hardtop.
