    Yes , all '67 MoPars had Blue Line Wide Ocvals . So you kn ow I won't build any '67 MoPars ..lol .. I just don't have the dough ray me to buy Potentially 30+ Piranha kits . I am a disabled shut in . For me the color of Sidewalls Stripes aren't too much of a Problem .. except for the Wide Oval Look ..  So  I have a stash I DRYTHERb to see on my shelf . I have a '65 Vette , John Hier conversion parts , John Hier Lacquer wit Gold Line (thank you Modelahus) that are w a a y too WIDE . This most difficult build . Made from limited sourced parts ect. , is not a choice finished build . I am sorely disappointed every time I see it in my Corvette String . Good thing it sits sideways in a Carney Display Case to soften the FAT Tires ... I do appreciate the Gold Line Modelhaus . Just , slightly liking them better than wrong  Red Lines  of proper Fx70x14 , which I cannot get anyway . Just like Elections , pic the lesser of two evils .. Thanx ..

    So , I am not the Lone ranger or Retentive , which I freely admit to be , builders out there . So all I have to is to buy 30 + Piranha Kits for the Blue Line Tires . I'll have the 30 sets of the mix of Red , Blue , Gold Line WIde Ovals for my 30  + Plastic & Resin Muscle Car Kits I've been buying and sitting on for decades ?  Uhhh .. not !From '64 - "73 F x 70 x 14" (some 15") was the Standard OEM Muscle car Tire .  I also have '32 & '34 Fords , 5 Pre War Willies (including the exclusive US Navy Pick Up) sitting for the same reason . If you don't know about this Willies , you do not know pre - or contemporary WW II Cars . This era is a Dark Room as far as information . For me , my Genera  , I am so into these . So many more Cars in my Archives for the same reason BTW . Where can I go to request these from Round 2 ? It seems the aftermarket is allergic to these OEM Muscle Car Tires .. I build Factory Stock . The 14" as well as the 15 " are just not Cast / Injected / Sold . The Modelhause are NOT Fx70 x 14" nor wide Ovals . They look ridiculous on Builds sitting side by side in the Display Cases with the FATTIES .. I write the request for F x 70 x 14" Ovals here at least 6 times A YEAR . Just one other like me so far . Anyone else ?? Thanx ..

    I need to get hold of Keith Marks . Hoe do I do so please ? I am shocked about the Machine Decals . I offered to send him a Copy of the Originals quite a while ago .. He declined as AMC was ??

    Kits are spelled out in the catalog of what you need to complete the Model . I own quite a few of Dave's Products . The resin castings he makes are of a Better quality than Revelle kits . I'll stand on this testimony every day of the week . A happy and repeat customer , yes , I am .  Thanx ..

    Thank you , I did forget about the seat pleats . The '64/5 had a different seat back on the Front Buckets . It has 3 or 4 Vertical Pleats .. The '64 Production used a Generator . The '65 Production provided an Alternator . The '64/5 MY Mustangs had a Transverse Muffler . I replaced quite a few these . My *(03f) Mustang V/8 4V , 210 Hp had a single exhaust transverse as did the 6 Cyl . I worked in a Muffler Factory , same part. The '66 V/8 225 Hp had a dual inlet and outlet transverse Muffler . The 271 Hi Po had two inline small higy performance mufflers . The '64/5 MY Mustangs without the Scallop Trim were powered with the 120 CID (snicker actually an anemic low output) I-6 . That and the 13" wheels are a dead giveaway for the I-6 .
       *(o3f) Date Code = 3rd day June , 1964 . June 1 , 1964 was the first day of t5he 4bbl 210 hp 289 . I needed to know this to replace all of my Clutch Operating Parts after I installed a 12" Cobra Clutch and Pressure Plate . One by one BTW , with better than OE parts through Ford . I could only get OE Spec on the Aftermarket . These parts I bought at a lower price , at that being said , through Ford Performance ! A  Mustanger . I owned that car for more than 5 years . This occurred during the time I used to get another one every nine months .

    As a Mustanger , the '64/5 Side Scallop was a different animal from the '66 MY . The '66 was a new grille . I suggest using the HT Kit , easy to get . The Boot from R&M of Maryland . The Modelhaus Grille & Wheel Outers ('64/5 MY) if you are making a Factory Stock Version .. The '64/5 MY had the Falcon instruments . Idiot lights unless it was a GT . The Full set of gauges for the GT was standard for the '66 MY . For our purposes in scale , the two round circles of Gauges for the '64/5 MY . The '56 GT / '66 MY had four little circles of gauges instead .. Thanx ...

    Update .. for this kit , Kevin now has the correct NON-Black tires for the Purist like me . Black Tires were not invented nor available until 1914 from the research I've done . Thanx ..

    I did a comparison of them JoHan '62 Lark i built into a Pace Car Replica . The Dash layout , upohlestry pattern , and Dash Pad are not the same as Dave's Lark Guts . MY does indeed mean M(odel) Y(ear) .. Thanx ..

    This is the '60 MCW Lark HT . I modified it to represent a '61 MY . It took some hard digging to find this color combination . It is a Tribute Build of the 1:1 I worked on way back in time . Modelhaus has the parts to do the MY Change . It does come as a '60 MY Lark . Very little work was needed to finish this replica . Not difficult resins to work with .. Thanx ..
