Unfortunately, That '66 Monaco I had rode away to another owner a couple of years back, as I was able to get another without a box for a lot less from a friend. It was missing a couple of minor parts, which I was able to get from The Modelhaus. I will miss them. I have a '65 and '66 Monaco, which are Grails of mine, which I am going to definitely build. I plan to book end them with my '65 Polara CHP Cruiser and my '66 Polara 500 convertible If I sell off any of them, I'll give you a shot at them.
I am cheap by necessity. Fortunately, I have most any model I will want to build, as my investments in unbuilt annuals is over. The most I spent on a single kit was for a MIB MPC 1966 Dodge Monaco Hardtop for $150 several years ago. Recently I have been selling off my unbuiltsm which I have completed.
To me, the cleanest resin would be from the Modelhaus '83 Impala if you can get one. The Caprice Sedan resin looks very close, and it would not take much to make modifications to improve its accuracy. I sold the State of Maryland, its counties and other departments over 770 '83 Impalas, as well as a couple of hundred '84 Impalas to other Maryland, and Northern VA municipalities, as Ford won the '84 MD state bid, due to certain specs particular to the Ford Crown Victoria, and I am very familiar with the specs of the various cars. I was lucky, that I was able to get a Modelhaus '83 Impala to build as a MSP Marked Cruiser, similar to Tom Sheehy's excellent build.
In order to do the MD State car, I have to recreate the HD Interior with HD Bucket Seats, and Black Steelies with Dog Dish Caps, as the entire fleet was equipped with them from the factory. The full wheel covers are not necessarily incorrect, as they could have been added to the car after delivery. The non-special service Impala in those years had full wheel covers as standard equipment, and dog dish caps were not available except as a C.O.P.O. By the way John and Wayne;s Impala Cruisers are excellent examples too,
F&F Resin did a pretty nice '64 Convertible several years ago. Sorry to write that Ed Sr. had passed several years ago, and the transkits were very rare, and pricey, but well worth it. A couple of years ago, I wanted to do a '65 Starfire , but I decided to do the car as a Dynamic 88,
as doing a Starfire or Jetstar I would have involved cutting up a '65 Grand Prix for the roof, and I did not have a junker. However, I would love to do a '62 Starfire, as my Dad had one.
I have a sweet spot in my heart for full sized cars. I really like that '68 Ford XLGT. May I make a suggestion? If I were building this one, I would paint the package tray flat black. In the real world, a white package tray would reflect light something terrible. When I was growing up, my dad had a few cars with white interior, and the package trays were always black. Just a suggestion.
