    I remember the X cars (Skylark, Citation,Omega, Pheonix) pretty well. All I remember are the I4 2.4L Cast Iron Duke and the V8 2.8L. The X-11 was a model with the HO High Output V6.

    If you wanted the 403 Olds engine, the common Johan Eldorado kit has it. Doesn't have a Caddy engine, has the Olds engine.
    It should be true for 1978, that you can tell which 400 engine you have by looking at the shaker scoop. The Olds 403 said 6.6 Liter and the  Pontiac 400 said TA 6.6. This is how the '79s were.

    My Del Rio is going to be a Ranchero with a blower. Thanks Revell.

    All the ERTL AMT kits had those trophies in one kit, or you had to buy several?

    Thanks Brett. I got it. All the answers are in The Great Swamp.
  6. Bob Ellis added a post in a topic 1963 Lincoln Continental HT - Updated 8/2   

    Everything said is true about the box; it's generic. There is a small picture of the '63 Lincoln on the box end.
    1964 is the first year AMT made unique boxes for each model. So, 1958 through 1963 AMT annual boxes had these themes; Hardtop, Convertible, Truck and Compacts. The picture on top of the box didn't really tell you anything about the contents except; Stock, Custom and Racing (or another theme like Presidential Limo on the Lincoln). The only exception I know is the 1960 El Camino. Probably somebody else remembers another.
    No 2dr Lincolns in 1963, real or kit.

    This topic has gravitated to an interesting question; where did the '67-69 Barracuda tool originate. Like the '67 Chevy Fleetside, it started in an AMT box and resurfaced in 1968 in a MPC box. To the casual observer, the part count and details seem the same in the 1967 AMT and the 1968 MPC. I am not sure it is the same tool, but it could be.

    My 2010 Ford Escape went into a Failure Mode. Instead of the throttle body stuck open at 100mph, the Escape ran at 5mph.
  11. Bob Ellis added a post in a topic Lindberg Crown Victoria? New Or Reissue?   

    The 1979-1989 Crown Vic would be interesting to me.

    It is worth noting that the supercharger parts are in the Del Rio kit. Interestingly, the supercharger parts are not mentioned in the directions. Anybody got an exploded view of the blower? I want to use it!

    I am guessing the original '69 Barracuda had a HEMI and slant six, and now it has a wedge 383?
    My feeling is that you will never see an all new kit from Round2, or a heavily modified reissue. Retro boxes and restored parts are about what I expect.

    If Round2 reissued just one of those kits it would be nice.

    You have the correct wheel well moldings.
    Are those tail lights from Shawn Carpenter, or decals? They sure look good.
