     Kinda pricey for parts

    Thanks for the tip. It is pricey compared to the ones I bought off ebay over a week ago. The ones that I bought had one complete car, and an almost complete copy with it. The incomplete was missing the glass, wheels, tires, axles, and the steering wheel. I had nearly all the missing parts for the second kit just not the steering wheel. FWIW I paid $18.00 for them. Hopefully someone on the forum will have the steering wheel!

  2. Long shot since they seem to be hard to find, But I need the steering wheel from this kit. The kit is molded in Turquoise with a white roof and has a off turquoise with black interior. The steering wheel is off turquoise in color. If anyone has a spare from a junked kit I need one to finish the car I have.

  3.  I bought the kit as a christmas gift for myself. This is the second Nova wagon I've done in this color combo, as first one was given to a Nephew of mine. The U-Haul trailer is corrected to look more like an actual U-Haul trailer from that time period. Still have to find period correct U-Haul decals for the trailer. Photo's were taken inside due to being windy and cold..

  4.  I bought the trailer in Sylvania in October 2021, and built it  The Transtar 4070 a was a Christmas gift that was finished on New Years day 2022.

    When I was growing up the north American  HQ Offices/trucks & trailers were on the east side of Meyer road. This was directly across the road from the scout factory.  The Truck factory had several entry gates off of Meyer road as well, One was where we would drop of my dad sometimes. These two are part of the History of Ft. Wayne Indiana in the early 1970's... Sorry couldn't take photo's outside due to weather conditions of overcast skies and rain...
