    Not that it matters ( What's in a name ? ) what Round2 put on their box art description ; how-ever , just to clarify : Super Stock was reclassified in 1967 ; see link :

    First year for Pro Stock was 1970 , an outgrowth of S/SE (Super / Stock Eliminator)  . Heck , even Super Stock as a classification didn't come around until , what , 1966 ? 1967 ?

    I think that was primarily V6-equipped models . V8 engines ; the Buick , Olds , and Pontiac ( "BOP" ) engines appeared unique from their non-related Chevrolet small V8 . But , you do have a point ! Ha ha ha . The pending Olds kit has an "Olds 307" .

    Did Dana use that hood in '67 , too ? ( That green '68 was originally a 350 / Powerglide , IIRC . Dana converted it in '69 to a 427 / 4-speed )

    Here's a couple of 1967 Nickey 427 Camaro :

    And one with the dual four barrel induction ( note lack of the [dreaded] A.I.R. Pump ! )

    Has its faults --no more than it did in 1969 , however-- but builds up nicely . IIRC , the 1968 annual had a Slant Six and Hemi options ...

    Even a Dana would be possible from this kit !

    Unfortunately , the A.I.R. Pump is still present , which is incorrect on a modified L-72 .

    As a quick reference , it lacks . They're showcasing kits that either aren't available yet ( e.g. , the 1969 383 Barracuda ) or have been cancelled ( e.g. , the Larson Vega Pro Stock ) .
    It has potential and I hope that they continue to improve upon it .

    Rest assured that the transverse-mount torsion bars are there , same chassis from 1976 (as a 1977) through the 1980 (last year for the F-bodies) . I have a '77 Volare annual (MPC never did a '76 model) and that was the first thing I checked ! Another bonus of the MPC F-body kits : Torqueflite trans , correct air cleaner , and underhood details !

    "Final Cut #2" Meguire's [sp] works well , too .

    One of my favourite esoteric references is Central Office eXchange phone numbers (e.g. , "BEechwood-45789") . Some-thing I completely geek out over , and some-thing I use just to hear every-one say , "Huh?" . For an instance ; some-one will ask what the number is at the store I work from , and I'll say " (714) ORange-490..." . This works two ways : (1.) the '714' area code was replaced long ago with '909' , and eventually '951' , so it's fun to hear these "kids" say , "You work in Orange County ?" . (2.) The head-scratching when I give "OR" as the preix is hilarious .

    I stand corrected . I'm just so used to California-spec cars from that era as having the smallest , wheezeiest engines possible ! I'm a life-long resident (46 years) of Ca.
