  1. Bob Ellis added a post in a topic --> FOUND ! 1972 440-6 Road Runner : the white whale !   

    I had heard CHrysler was selling HEMIs in a crate in 1972 if you wanted to stick it in the car. THe six pack 440 was listed as needing Premium gas high compression. Unlike the other engines

    I could make a statement; most of the MPC cars seemed narrow undersized. That becomes a problem if you are using the MPC Charger as the standard.

    I saved a Johan body for this procject; marrying Johan and Revell. Any fit problems ? I find mixing kit manufacturers is a challenge

    If showbiz helps pay to produce the kit, so be it

    From other pictures that I saw, it has a 1969 tail light bezel. Maybe better than the original MPC the grill,It is very nice.

    You were lucky to get 2 1968 GTOS. I didn't get the kit until 1971.I recently picked up a 1968.

    I got 50 cents a week for allowance in 1966 ; that takes 4 weeks to buy most kits.

    Dealer net for these kits is about $15 to 18. Pretty hard to get a new kit cheaper unless  the store  is going out of business.It's not just inflation, economy of scale isn't there like it was back in 1964 -1974

    I fixed my 65 Corveette using the latest Round2 63 Vette kit.

    I would rather see the Roadhog 225 reissued. Seriously , the plastic is the least cost. The packaging , advertizing, distribution costs are the same no matter what you make.

    do people want to build a stock 1970 mach 1 or the funny car?

    This is an AMT. The MPC had a different grille and no funny ridge line in the door
