    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 ..

    Needs some TLC to gett to this stage .. The body process is Slush Cast . I just painted the windows black . Thanx ..

    I will now post the rear View of the '61 MY Lark . Then the F & R View of the '60 MY .
    '61 Lark
    '60 Lark
    '60 Lark
    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 ..

  11. dimaxion added a post in a topic Looking for a '70's straight 6   

    A MCW & R&MoM resin engins are readily available making these the best choice IMHO . Change Air Cleaner / Silencer , add the Heat Stove and air pump for proper emissions for the '70 MY . A Picture fopr referwence would be helpful . Thanx ..

    As a Point of interest and detail . These units you refer to as "add on units" are just that . You only have the capability to re-cycle Air from the interior . This is the same as the MAX Air Setting . Before the advent of "the Universal all you Illiterate Dummies can understand this nomenclature . Example : The picture of a running shower head meaning this is the Headlight Control Switch . Ambient Outside Air is drawn through the Plenum Chamber as is Heater Air . Modern HVAC uses the same methods / chamber for all functions . The Packard Trunk Mounted Units in 1950's , among the other Fine Cars Trunk Units , drew Fresh Air from the trunk itself . Otherwise an add on Vent in the Quarter Panels unique to A/C Equipped Cars . Thanx ..

    While under the list of missed opportunities : I just missed the '50 Buick 4 dr. Sedan offered in the Early days of resin . After long term saving I had the money and sent the caster the MO . BTW it arrived the week after he quit casting this one .Thanx ..
