    Wanted: AMT '58 - '60 T-bird Parts
    Looking for a hood and dash for a '58 - '60 AMT T-Bird, either original or good resin copies.  Painted, tire burned, glue bomb - anything considered, even a built parts car.   TIA.

    On a truck that size, I'd guess Holmes 600.  If you find drawings, please share.

    It's nice to see something both period correct and properly engineered for a change.  Keep at it, I know all about getting bogged down and never finishing anything.

    That started with the 1969 model year.  For 1968 only the Hemi was orange; the wedge engines were still turquoise.

    Brilliant.  Why didn't I think of that?   Also, I'll take '60s diamond pleated buckets over ugly side bolster Recaros any day of the week.

    I am aware of that.  The Crestliner was also only available as a sedan, which is why I referred to the kit as being the wrong year and body style. 
    Anyway, this is the issue that had those decals - auction has ended, so click on the link to the original listing.

    Aha, I didn't twig you were the OP., it was late and I'd only skimmed the thread 
    From what I can find online, the model A block is 19 5/16" x 7 13/16" in plan.  The British sidevalve is about 13" x 5 1/2", so about 2/3 the size of the A engine.  I haven't been able to find anything on the height of the British Ford engine, but obviously it'll be smaller in that dimension as well.  Then, as mentioned, the inlet and exhaust are on the opposite side...  seems is would be as easy to start from scratch.

    The OP hasn't been on here in nearly two years...
    Still, for the record, the model A four banger isn't a good subsitute for a stock Anglia/Thames engine.  The 1172cc British Ford is only about a third of the displacement of the model A engine - the bore is only 2.5", so it's tiny in comparison.

    It does on a '51.  The decals are correct for a '50 Crestliner, but still, the kit is the wrong year and body style.

    Those decals were defintely in the '80s AMT/ERTL issue of the '49 Ford - red car on a plain white box.  No idea which other releases had them.
  11. dodgefever added a post in a topic is there interest in the dodge tom coolidge made??   


    The one I have from a few years ago is the '65-'67 style like this.  Modelhaus did a '64, but, not Tom Coolidge, AFAIK.
    If this is the one being discussed, the rear door frames need a tweak because the front edge should angle back slightly, not straight up.
     
  12. dodgefever added a post in a topic Dodge L700 years of production?   

    The Dodge L series was producded from 1966 - 71.   Why include the '40 Ford?  I guess because they had the tooling, and combi kits might be perceived as added value by some.  The '40 was originally a Palmer kit, IIRC, and is a lesser quality knockoff of the AMT '40.

    I really don't get this 40% coupon thing.  I mean, if everyone uses them it's meaningless; why don't they just price them at 40% off?  It puts me in mind of Nigel Tufnell... "these go to eleven".

    China is the Wild West, you may think you can trust them, but they hold all the cards.  Even 1:1 car manufacturers have their products ripped off.  They're making a "Land Wind" knock off of the Land Rover Evoque right now.  Luckily it's not my problem, but I'd be looking to repatriate anything and everything that's gone to China.
