    If you plan on using an AMT kit as the basis for your build, it'll have the old style chassis that uses metal axles to mount the wheels. I don't recall for sure, but I think the wheelbacks in the kit don't show much detail.
    The AMT/SMP '61 & '62 Corvette kits had some detail on their wheelbacks that looked like a brake drum.
    Someone here on the Forum who has an "Accurate Miniatures" '64 Corvette Grand Sport can perhaps provide some info on the brake details in that kit.
    Otherwise, there's always aftermarket parts....

    Welcome back to the hobby!
    just post an ad in the "wanted" section of the Forum. I'm sure someone will have that kit.
    If you don't specifically need a '49, keep in mind that AMT/Round 2 has recently reissued their '50 Ford in the "Showboat" version.

    As I mentioned in a previous post, I was fortunate to get a copy of Starbird's biography (written by his grandson), as well as reading a bunch of other material on the "Predicta" over the years.
    It is true that Starbird himself ran the car at the 1960 Kansas City AHRA national drag meet. The bubble top wonder hit over 100MPH with its Hemi engine.
    Not just "plausible", but the real deal.....

    MPC 1960 Corvette (Round 2 Reissue) out Yet?
    Anyone get their hands on the reissued '60 Vette yet?
    I was just wondering if was faithful to the original MPC kit. Although the original had some flaws, it built up nicely, and had some useful extras such as the rally racer parts.

    Parts Needed = '62 Buick Electra Tail Light Lens
    Like is the title says, I'm looking for one (1) red tail light lens for my AMT '62 Buick Electra.
    Since the kit has been reissued a few times over the years, I was hoping that one of you guys had built one as a custom or racer, and didn't need your stock tail lights.
    I have stuff to trade...
    please send me a PM if You can help.
    thanks!

    AMT '62 Nova Hardtop
    Up for grabs is a rare all-original "screw chassis" AMT #K-7022 '62 Nova hardtop kit, with original box.
    This model is a built-up, but is unpainted except for the interior. Excellent condition! Definitely not a glue bomb! Would be easy to disassemble and rebuild to your liking, or enjoy as-is.
    My wish list for possible trades:
    Other original AMT/MPC/Jo-Han "annuals" from the 60s (what have you got?);
    AMT '67 Ford Galaxie hardtop kit;
    AMT '64 Buick Wildcat hardtop kit;
    AMT '65 Buick Wildcat;
    Jo-Han '65 - '68 Chrysler 300 kit;
    I've been having a hard time posting photos to this Forum since the big format change a few months ago, so if you'd like to see some pix of the Nova, please PM me with your e-mail address, and I'll send 'em to you.
    Thanks for your consideration.......

    Had similar good time in my '62 Corvair coupe during lunch time. I think we got eight (8) or nine (9) in it one day, but hard to operate stick shift with someone (female) sitting on my lap. This took place in mid-70s before seatbelt laws, and before the stupid schools administrators decided to make our school a "closed campus".
