The new Pace Car reissue with Linda Vaughan figure also has both the uptop and plain grille from the Cutlass Supreme kit. It only has the one (stock) set of wheels, though. Eggcrate grille is correct for Hurst/Olds
I grew up in Martinsville, VA within earshot of the track. It was hard not to. NASCAR kits were everywhere, chain stores, mom & pop stores, Flea markets, etc, and then twice a year the race came to town and there were vendors selling all sorts of stuff. Our LHS had reams of decals. Was a fun childhood.
I cut my teeth on NASCAR kits growing up, I just might just have to get one of these and strip, paint and decal one. I like the idea of not having an engine to slow down a build, I used to glue my hoods shut half the time anyway. I'm certainly no Clay Kemp. Just hope the wheel/tire package looks good.
One or two a year? I'll sell one or two EVERY Saturday between Black Friday and Christmas. I'm just in the shop on Saturdays now, but I'm sure they sell a few more during the week. $20 in 1965 is around $150 in today's money, I'm sure it was a shocker back then. It sells for about half that now. I remember one Christmas when Revell was going through ownership/management upheaval and we couldn't get any. Folks were bummed!
Ok, I just assumed they were just new wheels and hoods on the prepaint kits. Hopefully they're on the full detail chassis and come with stock parts. If so then they might as well drop the idea of the unpainted prepaint kits. It's possible that the wheels are just photoshopped in and that why they look so wonky, but I'm not holding my breath.
