When you were a kid, after buying a 3 in 1 kit, you had to decide which version to make or maybe a combo of all three. Since AMT has been reissuing old kits, I was finally able to make all three versions.
Left to right for both kits is stock, custom, and race. The El-Camino with the white camper and the stock wagon are original issues I built in 1965. Still have the old instruction sheets and some of the extra parts. These had screws holding the chassis to the body. Testors discontinued the turquoise spray paint so I had to shoot the drag wagon in light blue. The drag version of the El-C had an extra front suspension spacer to make it look like a gasser.
I just ordered two 3 in 1 AMT 1953 Ford pickups, one for stock, a tribute truck to Tim Allen's characters truck in Last Man Standing, the other, full custom.
