      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

  3. Getting ready to start on a Polar Lights Mustang funny car. I seem to have heard or read somewhere that the chassis needs to shortened a small amount in order for the wheelbase to be correct. Does anyone know how much it needs to be shortened?

  5. Pinto Bumpers

    Looking for the thin bumpers for early Pintos. I believe they would be from the years 1971-73. Condition of chrome not important. Could use two sets.
  6. Hope this is not old news. Did a search and didn't find anything. Saw a photo on a Facebook drag racing group of a Golden Commandos 1965 Plymouth Belvedere. Photo was cropped but it appeared to be a kit box. It said Coming Soon. The poster was involved with the team. I asked if it was a model and he said yes. I assume it will be the same as the Melrose Missile. Model King perhaps.

  11. Moebius '65 Mercury Comet Cyclone news

    If you are thinking of dropping a Mustang body on the Comet chassis keep in mind the Comet wheelbase is 114" and the Mustang's is 108". The A/FX Mustangs also had the rear wheels moved forward 3 inches.
  12. I received the Missile kit today. Looks to be a decent kit. Noticed three small things. The instructions show to install the console. Pretty sure the real car did not have a console. "Air Cleaners" are not correct in shape. Also no roll bar included. Looking at the instructions I'm wondering what a "Torque Filter" transmission is.
  13. Moebius California Flash 1965 Belvedere

    The Golden Commandos car pictured was the 2% wheelbase car that only ran in the 1965 AHRA and NHRA Winternationals. It was then converted to the altered wheelbase car. Same goes for the Melrose Missile '65 hardtop.
  14. I see it only took three posts for somebody to complain.
  15. Chrysler had four cars prepared for the 1965 NHRA Winternationals to run in A/FX because the NHRA wouldn't let the AWB cars run in that class. They had acid dipped bodies, carbs and a 2% altered wheelbase. They ran A/FX. The Super Stock cars were two door sedans. They were run by the Ramchargers, Color Me Gone, Golden Commandos and Melrose Missile. All were later converted to the full altered wheelbase cars. I would guess this model represents one of those cars.
