  1. Nice saves Snake. I still have my original AMT '65 Mustang Fastback kit. I built it as a Gas Ronda A/FX car many years ago. Have the original box with all the extra parts if you are in need of some. Love a good save!
  2. It builds up okay with a few changes. Some great photos from the Mecum listing:https://www.mecum.com/lots/CH1013-167137/1966-plymouth-barracuda-hurst-hemi-under-glass/
  3. Yep, but I would have to disassemble it again, so I'll live with it. I believe the engine bay was white and the windshield wipers were deleted, too. Oh well, maybe on the next rebuild!
  4. Thanks guys. Am in the process of rebuilding some more.
  5. Thank you, Sir. Looks like Round 2 might be reissuing this soon.
  6. The side of the kit box said it was a "small block Chevy 350 engine" but your right, every thing else was incorrect.
  7. Well, it's has been a while since I looked at some of my old Pro Stock builds. Took out my Grumpy's Toy Vega and had never realized that when I build it in the early 80's that MPC had made several mistakes. The engine was a 350 ci Chevy with an auto trans and Holley 4500 carbs, all wrong. Found a nice 302 (331ci) engine with a 4 speed trans in a '68 Camaro Z/28 kit, added a correct high rise manifold with dual Holley 660 cfm carbs. Found a good set of proper headers. I think it looks better now. Pic shows rebuild with original kit engine next to it. I guess I need to go thru my other Pro Stocks and look for other mistakes.
  8. And here is my IMC build to show the difference.
  9. Great information. I like the one in the Revell '67 Corvette Coupe but no one responded in "Wanted" to trade. Any other kit besides JoHan, as I had two pairs of those but they are in my built '68 Camaro and '70 Maverick Pro Stocks. Thanks for your reply.
  10. Bump, still looking! Trying to complete my Bill Jenkins 1972 Vega Pro Stock rebuild.
  11. I would say the chassis in the MPC Cougar and Judge are even "Pre" Stage I. Like your pics.
