    Probably one kit Norm Veber does not have.

    Front end which has 71/72 characteristics.

    It is a strange kit as it comes with a Boss 429 engine.  You can make a decent replica of an early 70's Nascar racer mostly forgotten or over shadowed by the TransAm series.  i'm pretty sure that is where the decal art came from.  Google Wayne Andrews mustang.

    You're killing me on that one. :-(

    bestmodelcarparts.com. You cut them out and use white glue.  They are not a decal - it is like photo paper.

    The museum alone is worth the price of admission.

    It is an Testors spray can sable brown metallic.

    Closeup of interior.  I need to touch up the center emblem in the steering wheel to look as good as the one on the glovebox.   Amazing what a closeup pictures shows the naked eye has trouble seeing.

    Stock 66 Mustang coupe
    Done with except for an engine.  The console scream automatic whereas the engine trans and pedals are for a three or four speed.  I may use the 260/289 and match it with a C4.  The wire wheel covers are resin copies.  The underside is painted but nothing special.  I tried to replicate the two tone pony interior.  The gauges are from bestmodelcarparts.com

    What you really want is .....
    I have yet to build a stock 73 but is on my list.  The good diecasts put the AMT/MPC kits to shame.  Notice the Testors wing is was too high.

    The Testors is a 71/73 hybrid.  73 Mach1 trunk decal, 71 side stripes and grille and 73 front bumper.  The worst part is it has a 70 Boss 429, not a 429CJ or god forbid a 351 Cleveland.  You could repaint it, use a 73 Grille and make a 73 Mach1 or sportsroof (eleanor) or grind off the bumper, add a chrome bumper and 351 to do a Boss version (with Magnum 500's.  If you want one of the underhood ram air units I can send you one.  Here are some grille pictures just to drive you crazy.

    Those are Magnum 500's which come in most of the 69/70 Revellogram Mustangs.

    Keith Marks has the best decals for 71-73 Mach1's.   He also has ones for a sprint and the Shelby Europa.

    Good point JC.  Could also be the dog dish ones with trim rings too.  Some of the 71-73 Mustang kits came with stock wheels.

    Here is a hodgepodge of decals from original to reissues to Cady & Marks.  Enjoy.
