    It was common to use cross frames on convertibles because a lack of roof meant less rigidity. Hence, beef up the frame.

    I have been in a Chinese plant watching a younger guy text on his phone rather than work. For that reason , I can see why no-one noticed a mix-up.

    David,beautiful paint. I had the notchback Gran Torino Sport. 302 Windsor small block V8. Slowwwwwwwwwwww. 9-13 mpg. All the 72s ran horrible that I remember. Dad's Buick with the 455 4V was slow too. But this 72 Torino looked beautiful.

    The 1950 Ford was a Styline kit. The 1949 was a 3in1 with drag options. Some of these 1979-1982 issues have plastic axles that are NG.

    The Palmer 1971 1/25 Challenger kit was good . Blatent copy of MPC.

    This Revell Nomad kit is horrible. I threw my kit in the trash back in the 1970s.
