One problem with the Fleetside bed in this and the 66 kits As molded it is a Stepside bed with Fleetside type fenders added They should have molded the bed in separate parts like the AMT/MPC 67-72 kits!! But Cut corners here I cut my Fantom Cameo Bed apart to make a more accurate Fleetside. Still it Is a Nice kit I want the 2 66 kits, and at least 1 more 65 to build a Stepside out of Mine is getting the Model King Open Road Mini-Motor Home body!!! YES, I had to stretch the chassis!!!!
Built one myself Never had a problem with their Multi-Piece bodies Have 3-4 of the 59 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner Built the first in 74-75 when first re-issued!! Restoring that one Started a Skip's issue, but sold it last year Need to start another like that Opening doors, Steering, Continental kit, FULL Deluxe treatment!!! Just Finding a Color CLOSE to the Sunset Coral Ford painted them in 59!! (Close to the color Rev molded the 2 runs of the Skip's kit in!!) Want the US SSP issue molded in White I have the Rev-Gremany 50th Anniversary kit molded in Green They marked the box Correctly as a Fairlane 500 But Rev-US still calls it a Galaxie Look Closely FAIRLANE 500 Script on BOTH Rear fenders!!!! AMT Annual was a Galaxie!!
I would happily have a few more of the Rev 59/60 Vette kit!!!!
Those Twinsonics look Fantastic And 'X' shape Half Mirrors versus full height forward facing ones!!!!!! No department using them near me had the 'X' Half-height mirrors on them!!!! ONLY Ever saw ON in Cranberry area of Pennsy. WAY BACK when!!!!! Rt 19 BEFORE I-79 was more than Dream, only Partially built, Under Construction!!!!! Mid 70's!!
Hood is the same 4 piece as in the 3 Pickup kits Engine, Chassis, Engine bay, Grill insert, suspension are ALL the same I can see that in the pics above I have 2 of the 64, and a 65!! No 66 yet, but..............
If we could get one of the Ambulance/Hearse kit, we could likely get all four Or at least the Stock pair They were they same tooling with different inserts I have built enough of them to see the Ambulance "Full-View" Corner light location holes in the underside of the Hearse roof
I still have a built Roarin' Rambulance dragster and stock Ambulance as well as Hippy version & Stock Hearse
Definitely wish ANY Jo-Han kit could be re-issued But with Moebius pulling out from the ones they were testing (And the IMC kits announced) we will likely Never see re-issues of them any time soon If Ever!!!
Any news on the Curbside kits last announces\d b the New IMC, as well as the Turbine and 59 Dodge that Moebius Was Looking at running???
I would LOVE that 59 Rambler wagon again!! Especially with the SFPD decals that were to be included!!
I know the Lindberg kit was a Standard 2dr coupe, and Also done as the Mercury Monarch twin
Wasn't Futura's Resin a Fairmount Futura, instead of a standard Fairmount? NO Station wagon version was done from the Futura design It was Called the "Baby T-Bird" Looked like one We had a Red one, and Mother HATED it inline 6 could Not get out of its Own way!!!!
Petty DID drive a Ford Torino in 69 due to MoPar's refusal to let him change from Plymouth to Dodge in order to drive the Daytona MoPar caved in 70 giving him the Superbird to get him back
There Were Ford C cab Box vans at Petty Enterprises for a few years after 69 I have soem Pics.
As for the L series of the kit No Idea Plus Petty had gone to Enclosed trucks, Not Semis like now, but Straight trucks The City Delivery/Short Haul L & C Ford kits Some Did carry the car Some towed the car on a flat trailer with a Cover over it The Tandem trailer shown in some of these set kits is close
I use to go to Dover Downs, so HAVE seen this First hand too!!
