I sold one of these kits 5-6 years ago and regretted it ever since , so a couple of years ago I started searching and ended up with two of them ! I built all of these AMT Funny Car kits back in the late 60's and as a kid I thought they were great , so this is definitely a "Nostalgia" build . Even with the recent reissue there's something about building 50 year old plastic .
Built right out of the box (including the plastic tires) except for a MAD distributor and some decals I still think it's a cool looking kit . And I had fun building it , brought back lots of memories !
Here's what I started with . I bought the Dyno Don decals on ebay a few months ago but decided not to build another Eliminator II .
Paint is Model Master Hugger Orange Lacquer and the glass was tinted with Tamiya Clear Orange .
Here's the finished engine and chassis .
