    Just for the record, All American Models cast the 67 or 68 Cougar in resin.  I have one of these in my collection.

    Yes, the horizontal bar in the grille was only on the GTE, which came in Standard or XR 7 trim.  Also the GTE had argent paint on the lower body, separated from the main color by a stainless steel molding.
    GTEs came with a 427 at first, later they had the 428.

    In the late 60s/early 70s AMC used Chrysler Torqueflite transmissions.

    SMH Resins.  It's a nice piece.
     
    Reliable Resin shows a body conversion kit and a complete interior on their web site.  These pages were updated in 2010 and 2011 so use caution.

    To me it looks like they lengthened the cab a bit through the doors.  Kindig did that to some guy's 54-55 F100.

    This was issued by Testors, along with some resin kits of Jimmy Flintstone designs.  There was a custom Astro Van, chopped DIVCO milk truck, a Boattail Riviera and some others in the series.  They had photo-etch details and cast metal wheels.  All were curbside but pretty well done.

    This show has been cancelled due to forecasted inclement weather.  The Chevy Club, who sponsors the full-size car show at the location where the SoCal NNL is presented, cancelled their show and the venue has cancelled all events on Sunday, May 7.

    Jameston Kroon, the proprietor of Scale Finishes, had some tiny hardware for sale at his table at the GSL Trade Show.  Not sure if he sells it through his website, but worth a look.
