    That is correct. But the kit has a separate cluster that is on the chrome tree. The 64 convertible and the stock 65 GT350 use one style. The 66 GT350 has a different gauge cluster but is in that kit. Also the race 65 GT350 kits have a race only gauge pack!

    I don't know why it has not been issued in kit form. All the parts exist. When I built mine the white stripes were hard to find. Mine are Fred Cady but one of the last 66 GT350 kits had white stripes in it.









    BTW. Only 4 original 66 GT350 convertibles made in 66. I plan to build another one in blue. Only parts the real cars had that the kits don't have is AC! All 4 converts had AC. Shelby did commission some continuation converts later on in the late 80's or early 90's. I have a list of the four original convert serial numbers, 6S2375 Green/gold side stripes, supercharged auto. 6S2376 Yellow/white side stripes, 10 spoke wheels, 4 speed. 6S237 Red/ white side stripes, 4speed, chrome wheels. 6S2378 Blue/ white side stripes, 10 spoke wheels auto?

    I would love to see any 58 or 59 Ford. I just recently bought the Modelhaus 58 Fairlane 500 conv with all the trimmings. So with my luck that is the one that will be issued first.

    As it is I'm still working on my Modelhaus 72 Olds 442 convertible!!

    Here is a photo of my kit before I built it. Like stated above they are exact copies of the MPC annual parts.

    My LHS sold out of the Del Rio in days along with the 71 Ranger. To my surprise and theirs, they still had 2 of the 69 F100s. So I got one of them.

    Same thing happened with the Revell 70 Hemi Cuda. I got one of the first ones and it was so hot I traded mine away for a vintage kit I could not pass up. Funny part was that when the 2nd batch came out I grabbed one right away. I noticed that Revell fixed the 7 cylinder distributor that the first batch had!

    The hood was lost when they tooled up the parts to make the Daytona version. All releases of the 69 Charger after that had the Daytona hood.

    One day we will be paying that price for that 68 El Camino kit and bragging about the deal we got! It could happen, look at what we were paying in 2010 verses the new kits today!

    On the second eBay add! You have to read the description! Apparently the last buyer thought it was a real hood!
  8. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic '70 Chevelle kit - Revell vs. AMT   

    I have only seen the street burner issue of the Baldwin Motion version. I don't think it has been issued a second time but may have had a second run of this tool with the same box.

    I know that is a modified reissue of the Monogram 70 Chevelle SS 454. I believe it was first issued in the early 80's.

    Why would you hesitate? Or is a word missing in that sentence?
  10. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic 69 Firebird engine   

    I'm pretty sure I have one.
  11. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic Plymouth Superbird   

    Also a little piece of trivia. Did you know that the Superbird is the only Mopar that the 426 Hemi was available in that did not have any engine badges anywhere on the outside? Every 2nd gen 426 Hemi car had either 426 or a HEMI badge somewhere outside except the Superbird!
  12. Sport Suburban added a post in a topic Plymouth Superbird   

    Nice project! I have built two of these and they are good kits. I built my first one close to 30 years ago when this first came out. My only mod was changing the wheels for rallys from the TA Challenger kit. My second one I built recently and still added the rallys. I also cut the exhaust from the rear axle separating them and adding rear shocks.

    I ordered two when he got back from vacation. I have them now and they are nice.

    I'm sorry to hear your friend has some hard challenges going on in his life. While I'm not sure how this is helping I will gladly post my Chevelles for you both to enjoy. I have built all of these and have many more to do.

    The doors are the same 68-70. Only the 70 R/T had a fake scoop attached to the door covering up the two scallop intentions. But that only applies to the factory correct cars. The movie cars are all customs.
