    Truth spoken above.
    Most Jr. Stockers have the factory horsepower lettered on the car somewhere, so the engine that they ran is easily determined. Also during the horsepower wars  cars were moved down is class each year as more potent cars were built and classed.

    No love for the kits of the 71 - 73 Mustangs.

    Aston - Martin did something very similar about 28 years ago, U.S. regulations would never allow it here. 
    Sanction II Zagatos
    In 1988, 4 unutilised chassis numbers were put to use. With the approval of Aston Martin, four DB4 chassis were appropriately uprated to GT specifications. These chassis were then sent to Zagato's Milan workshop to be bodied like the originals, with a smaller oval grille, sans the stock DB4 GT's rear tail fins, and with a smoothed out rear end. To familiarise the workforce with construction techniques of the 60's, an original DB4 GT Zagato was sent along to be dismantled. These 'Works Approved Replicas' were known as the Sanction II cars. They were outwardly identical, but several changes were effected in the interest of better handling. Each of these cars sold for over $1,000,000. Differences to the 'originals' include a larger engine capacity, increasing from 3.7 litres to 4.2 litres and a smaller wheel diameter from 16 inches to 15 inches. The first of the four GT specification rolling chassis was delivered to Zagato in January 1989 and the fourth in April of the same year. With all four being completed in July 1991. All four cars were then given their own chassis numbers appropriate to the 1960s.

    Model Car World (MCW) has a great Nomad that would work with this kit even tho it's intended for the Belair Sedan kit.

    I had one soften from soaking in Awesome when I was cleaning the mold release from it. It hardened after a few days but I had some body work to do.

    Yes, they ruined it this last rebuild, most of the "real" Project X went into the dumpster.

    While I would never call this kit a "total POS" it does have a few problems with inaccuracys, not fit issues. It's a good kit, but could have been a great kit.

    It's been over 30 years ago, Kingswood was probably the right name. That wagon had all the bells and whistles, tilt wheel and all. The AM-FM stereo went into the Camaro too! The Camaro ran better than the wagon !

    All of the US big three built similar cars back then, I once owned a 69 Chevy Caprice Estate with a 390 HP 427, complete with hidden headlights and the wood grain trim. Very rusty, I pulled the engine and TH400 transmission and put them in my 69 Camaro.

    I need one for the chassis and FI engine, if I had an extra kit you'd be welcome to the body. Maybe I can find one next week at the show / swap meet I'm going to.

    I wish I'd bought more than I did.
