My first was a '66 Dodge Coronet 440 convertible handed down from my mom.
Oh, and it was a typical Chicagoland rust bucket with a 225" slant six.
Even though the 440 designation referred to trim level, I regularly got what was left of my doors blown off by people thinking it meant what was under the hood.
I had all 3 of the 1/32 drag kits back in the day (early '70s).
Monogram really nailed it on those in a way that hasn't, IMHO, been equaled yet in any scale.
Like what Snake touched on earlier about the Fiat, they all just look prototypically "right".
I'm talking stance, proportions, wheel/tire size, engine location, etc.
I recall reading somewhere that they were patterned after real cars of the time. The Willys was a take on KS Pittmans' car, the '34 Ford was based on Ron Gerstners' strip/show car, and I can't recall the Fiats' origin.
They really captured the look of the subject matter in a satisfying way.
I built one of these, must have been the '25 T as it was a roadster.
I think the side pipes are still in the parts box!
I just don't recall that hardtop/c-cab(?) option, but it's been about 40 years.
I do remember having the Keep On Truckin' '32 Sedan Delivery from the NSRA series along with the Lil' Evil T.
Very cool, they both look great!
I've always liked these kits and had both back in the day.
Very outside-the-box choices for funny cars and a great job of getting more mileage out of existing molds by Revell.
I used to question the choice of body style for the Revellion, until I saw photos of real cars like the Austin-Grassi "Fuel Cuda" and Sheldon Kornblatts "Peanuts" 4dr. Galaxie.
I've got a couple of the reissue Miss Deal, but never wanted to pay what the Revellions were going for.
I did score some decals for it though, and I recall seeing a resin repop of the body somewhere, and I do have a couple of Tony Nancy kits sooo....
