    I agree - the AMT '67 Mustang is the most accurate scale representation of this chassis. Front and rear sections are essentially the same - shorten the pan to fit.
    Once again, this article spells out all the variations in great detail: Falcon Platform History 1960 - 1980

    Perhaps you're thinking of the Holman Moody Falcon Challenger? Lots more pictures and info if you Google it.

    Not as crazy as some of them, but it is an IMSA car:

    Never met the guy in person, but I've admired his builds for a long time! He used to post on "that other board".

    This Lotus 11 tribute/replica caught my eye:

    Yeah Bill, I went to college with Charlotte from the Go-Gos, so that must mean she's in her 60s now - just like me, yikes! And I have a birthday in a week myself. It doesn't seem to stop.

    Agreed - sorry for any confusion. I was just remarking that the '66 Falcon had accurate shock towers for a Falcon/Mustang platform - not for a Fairlane.

    Odd EBay question?
    What do you make of this one? I'm trying to thin the collection a little and I have two model kits on EBay right now - I won't name them, but both are fairly recent and common kits; one open with an aftermarket photo etched piece, the other one is a sealed OOP kit. Both are correctly categorized and well described in pictures and text. I get a question from a guy with forty-some feedbacks on the sealed kit: "I'd like to buy a couple of your kits, however I don't need the slot car parts. Is there anyway you'd sell them without the slot car parts for cheaper??"
    I'm not sure if, or how to answer. Is the guy clueless, a potential scam artist, or did he just message the wrong guy?

    Thanks - I think I have a couple of the old Fred Cady sheets that do multiple cars, so that should work out great.

    I've had an old glue bomb slot car that I've been meaning to turn into a static model for years. This is way more appealing!
    Question: will it come with decals?

    Just found this topic - so cool! Following with interest.

    Could be! Interestingly enough maybe, the '66 Falcon Modified Stocker probably has the most accurate Falcon/Mustang shock towers available in kit form.

    I'm sure the Revell engineers never intended a "street version" when they tooled this kit. It's a very fine kit and builds into an excellent Thunderbolt, but to make it close to an accurate stock Fairlane, you'd have to change the engine and make extensive modifications to the kit chassis.
  14. RancheroSteve added a post in a topic Revell '64 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt Kit Parts Review   

    NHRA rules for the class required a stock exhaust system (muffler & tailpipe) be in place - but they didn't specify that it had to be hooked up! So there was small gap between the stock exhaust and the Thunderbolt's big tube headers.
    Lots of other modifications went into making a Thunderbolt out of a stock Fairlane - in fact, it's pretty far from anything you'd drive on the street.

    As far as I know, the fiberglass was always brown. I'm more of a Ford guy here, but I always liked the Chaparrals - it was very exciting at the time to see what innovations they would come up with next. I can still remember the buzz when the high wing 2E made its debut at Bridgehampton in 1966.
