    15" wheels were mandatory with the Hemi Package , at least 1969-1971 ( all literature that I've read also points to this being the case for '68 as well ) ..Chrysler didn't offer stylled wheels in 15" until the ill-fated Kelsey Hayes cast centre wheels of 1969 ( the infamous "recall wheels" ) , with 15" Rallye Wheels for 1970 . Deluxe wheel covers were the only option to the base hubcaps ; however , it is alleged that the dealers oft replaced the plain steelies with the 14" Road Wheels ( Commonly mistakenly called Magnum 500s ) .

    All the Mods had either a Vespa or a Lambretta,  and were typically done up in "Quadrophenia'  livery .
    Are you a Mod or a Rocker?

    WHOA! Reminds me of my parents' 1976 Monarch coupe Ghia ( 351 Windsor ; silver with 'cranberry' inteerior, silsilver 'opera" top ) .
    Ive been looking for one of those Lindberg kits for forever !

    Man,   that interior looks spot-on! Reminds me of a friend's 1968 Charger ; his car is white / green top / green 'Buddy Seat' interior / stripe delete. 
    Keep up the great work!

    The flat head 6 would have the obscure Power-Flite (A-466) , which is a 2-speed. The 318-A and 350-B had the A-488 TorqueFlite (cast iron precursor of the 1962 aluminum 727 )
    I doubt that anyone made / makes the 466 Power-Flite.

    I wonder how much' trouble' it would be to :
    -Offer a manual drum brake master cylinder AND power disc 
    -Belt & pulley arrangement for both manual AND power steering

    Great to hear from you,  George!

    I'm pretty certain that items such as wiper(s) were only required in Stock classes , and perhaps Factory eXperimental.

    from the 1966-1967 travelling multimedia show 'Andy Warhol Exploding Plastic Inevitable'  to 'Rock & Roll High School'  and as Mike Muir's mum in the 'Institutionalized' video ...

    TCM is a god send!  Love Film Noir the most ; lots of great footage of Bunker Hill ( which was demolished in the 60s , to much protest ) .
    I'm also a fan of French and Spanish films , new and vintage .
    My favouriteTV. programme is the Jack Benny Show , as he is one of my favourite comedians .
    The Monkees. .. many fond memories.

    The tPackail light lenses are blobs ,but that's no biggie. Both engines were tire-burned ; no problem,  as I' m planning to use either a Parts Pack engine or the extra FE from the AMT. 1960 Ford .

    God only knows how many of the 1970s issues of the' 57 hardtop I attempted to build back in the 70s ... to no avail. I especially liked the Lowrider (moulded in pink metallic) , as it looked like the cars I'd see cruising on Whittier Blvd. The Astro Supremes,  organ pipe speakers, the stance ...a visual delight! 
    I have the original 1962 issue of the 1956 F-100 which I got for next to nothing via eBay. Still getting my chops back , as I don't want to dig in until I'm confident in my skills.
    Tim- I remember your 1985 article in SAE , comparing the 1953-1956 F-100 kits , and would like to read yout c.1983 1957 Chevy comparo.
