    Just ckd, both wheel lip and rocker mouldings were standard equipment on  a 1969 Coronet R/T . Thats not to say the restorer didn't like them ( or didn't have them ) and just decided to leave them off.

    The AO1 light pkg was optional.
    But am pretty sure wheel lip mouldings as well as rocker mldgs were standard on an R/T

    If the CMG charger is complete enough to build . Its probably worth somewhere in the $75 to MAYBE $100 range with the box. As long as its not a glue bomb.
    A few months back there was a mint unbuilt one that went for months listed for about $175 ,,no idea if it ever sold. Out of the vintage CMG cars,,,, it's  the easier of the 3 to find and value reflects that. If the subject isnt to your liking it makes pretty good trade material.
    The one I have I picked up at a swap meet maybe 10 years ago, and if memory serves me right I paid less than $40 for mine. It had been started and is missing a piece of the interior tins ( still need it btw ) Otherwise it was all there in the box ( long since sold the box for darn near what I paid for the kit ). Back then the kit was just a little bit tougher to find than it is now.
    If it was the 68 Color Me Gone charger,,,, we would be talking .
     
    A decent builder 63 Fury is probably worth about $30

    Build it, I started with a kit very similar to what you describe. And I have no regrets .

    I had to remove some decals from my 1971 Duster promo and I just used solvaset and my fingernail,,,,. worked like a charm.

    I've bought most all the late 50s to mid 60s  curbside style kits made back then. So.... now would be a good time to release a few of them, But I'm not holding my breath,,,as I doubt those  tools even exist today.
    Personally I would love to see maybe a 59 Olds or Pontiac based off the 59 Chevy Impala kit tool ( if thats possible )
    Or maybe a 58-59 Desoto based off the 57 Chrysler 300 tool

    Well, I know its not a huge sale, but make them and I'll take the 1st ten right out of the box. as well as a few sets of hemi carbs, probably even a few sets of max wedge carbs
  12. gtx6970 added a post in a topic Fireball AFB Max Wedge Carbs   

    How about some plain old AVS carbs ?

    WOW. I'm amazed how well this one polished out. Spent maybe just over an hour. and have probably 2/3rds of the body wet sanded and polished.
    A LOT of the graininess is gone ( some if it is in the base coat and I cant do anything about it. ) but the shine is amazing.
    I can actually tell what kind of bulb is in my office room light. I LOVE this color ,,but its tough to get to show the true color on the PC.
    I've added a picture of the car I'm using as inspiration.

    A nice looking 1968 Coronet R/T hardtop.

    Thanks all. When i stumbled on a 1.1 in this color right after the kit was reissued. I knew i had to have it.
     
    Steve.
    I doubt it wil be anywhere near your quality.......but i may wet sand it and put a couple more clear coats on it before polishing. (there are 2 on it now)
