    Took a chance a while back on ordering a flat '71 hood for an mpc roadrunner from 'rdsxfn' (or something like that) but wasted my money. Poorly done with a gouge across the cowl grill as well. Wasn't worth the trouble to send back.

    Cougar convertible boot
    Somewhere I recall a mention that the 73 Cougar kits came with a surplus boot even though the model was a coupe. If this is true and someone has one to spare, please let me know...

    Here's a '55 I built at 14 in the 70s from the blue car box art kit. The Buick wheels came from the '56. Had no problems to speak of with it and am amazed at how well that testors rattle can black laid down and remains in good shape. Just picked up a builtup to use for restoration of a few missing/broken pieces.

    It's actually a '66 Delta 88 with Buick wheels. What I was referring to was the accessory sidepipes...

    An auto historian friend of mine wrote a great book on these cars...

    ...and this poor ol' Beaumont looks like it lost a rear wheel and ended up in the rhubarb...

    This very nice black nova passed me the other day, something big rumbling through those dual pipes...

    ...and saw this one, right out of the '70s, at a recent airshow

    The flat top sides started with the '77 trucks. Ford used the same style and width flare top beds from 53-72. In 76, after a three year break, they reinstituted the short flareside box, but it was wider (just a shortened eight foot flareside box) to match the new rear axle width brought out in 73. The sides proved too tall with the flare so they flattened them for the 77 and later trucks.
    You basically have your choice of four boxes: the 1/25 mpc and amt '53s, the 1/25 revell '56 or the 1/24 monogram '55.
