    Hey Richard, I'd recommend the MCG photoetched Shelby Mustang grill.
    And maybe a black wash, on the rims. Looking much better without the tampo!!

    Richard, I've also found these cars as UNIQUE REPLICAS too.

    They are different than the ones on mine, which only read " POLYGLAS GT F60-15"..... and NO Goodyear!  I'll have to do something about that next.

    That sounds cool Richard. please do post up Pics of Your '65 when You can. You know the only drawback that I see with the ones I bought is that they are COIN BANKS.

    Hey Geno, I just noticed...did You change the tire markings?

    Richard, they are made by Crown Premiums. I paid 30.00 with shipping for mine. So I'd say they are a really good buy!!

    Wow Geno, that orange one is great looking!  I've not seen one before!

    Oh I understand what You're saying Richard. The brand I used was CUTEX, it contains acetone which is the stuff that would harm plastic. I don't want to make a blanket statement that this will work on all tampo print, but it did work for me. I'll say this, I was prepared to repaint the doors minimally, so I guess it was kind of a risk that just happened to pay off.
    Right now I'm working on a 1/18 scale '68 Cougar that had a vinyl top, that is actually only flat black painted on. Again using that same CUTEX to remove it. and it's not hurting the blue paint underneath.

    Richard, I used nail polish remover, and it came off instantly and cleanly!

    I also bought a 1969 Boss 302 from this same manufacturer. It was painted in a Bud Moore Trans Am team car scheme. I also removed tampoed numbers and added Parnelli Jones' number.
    I can post pictures of that some time.

    After removing the tampo printing, that included an incorrect side marker light on the front fenders. And a little polishing I ended up with this:

    Recently I was browsing EBay and almost bought one that had been dropped, or somehow damaged. Anyway, I kept scanning listings and found this:

    Who hasn't drooled over the Danbury Mint Boss 429?

     

    I know I did but, the price always stopped me. Now they are possibly even more so!
