  1. Doubtful. I think . Hope there's a better chance for a pre-1972 Dodge truck
  2. Dude. You NAILED this one bigtime . I'm a closet fan of these cars and love this build
  3. There is/ was a red 1958 300 hardtop on ebay just a few days ago that was priced pretty good. ( like well under $100 ) Not sure if it is still on there or not Wife will shoot me if I buy anything small scale ...at least for a while (Currently trying to buy a 1/1 classic. )
  4. Sorry. But I'll respectively disagree with this. I've done some work on an original fc7 paint aar. And can assure you there is purple under the blackout.
  5. Thanks, Seems there were several 57-58 Variations of these cars by them. I already have both of the 1957 300 convertibles , the white Danbury and black Franklin mint cars. So felt a nice hardtop would be nice . They did make a red 1958 300 hardtop variation if one desires. But i really liked the color of this version .
  6. Theres not many I'm looking for but feel free to send me a copy please
  7. Price they can bring is very subjective to subject. Some of the more common cars/trucks can be bought on the cheap. But most of them can and do bring over $100 on a regular basis ( some WELL over ) I looked for a while for one of these mint green 1958 New Yorker hardtops and finally made an offer on one and it cost me $125 plus postage to get it ,,,and I have no regrets . Car is dead mint in its original box
  8. I didnt get any pics of it, but yesterday on I10 heading west , south of Tucson , ( maybe coming out of the Vail AZ area ) was a real clean looking old Ford F100. I 'think ' it was a 1960 but wouldn't bet the farm on the year . Nice looking truck I might add it seems to be the time of year more and more old rides are coming out to play around here. Although temps in the upper 30s when the sun goes down might kill that for a few ,,,,brrrrrr
  9. Not sure the beginning years/ years . But prior to Mopar Perf. it was called Hustle stuff I believe Skunk works ? Mopar had several off the record places/people they supplied parts to. Some well known ,,,,some not. Think Jimmy Addison fame for one. ( aka the Silver Bullet builder ) Yes, the 1971 Roadrunner had a urethane covered body colored front bumper. Im pretty sure a rear was avail as well
  10. This is the 1st Ive ever heard that an A body automatic trans was different length than an any other pass car auto trans
  11. Same here, then again this car/ show has a pretty good fan base so maybe not. ( my daughter included in said base ) Me personally I have zero interest. I hope it sells thru the roof, then maybe we can get some more obscure kits in the future
  12. I live less than 50 miles from the Mexico border. ( moved here last year from Northern Ky ) Bought a house at the base of the Santa Rita mountains south of Tucson Az and LOVE it. If I never see snow again, Im good So all you guys that have snow,,,Keep it there ,,,,PLEASE
  13. Made an offer on one of these and after a little negotiating. I bought one. Mint car in the original packaging. Seems a lot of these are missing at least one of the side emblems. ( the one I bought is perfect )
  14. Is this one the same as whats in the pro street 69 GTX and 70 Superbee kits ?
  15. Last time I ckd the website, it was so far out of date, I never went back. I follow them on his ebay store instead https://www.ebay.com/sch/member3664890/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=
  16. Cool, I'd like to have that . drop a modern hemi and auto in and drive the dog pants off of it
  17. It may be. But the 1969 kit is boxed marketed as the MI kit
  18. Was out today picking up supplies for house projects And came across a dark blue 1st generation Camaro. I want to say it was a 68.....but was a little ahead of me when I saw it. So I can't say for sure 100%
  19. Well, If someone happens to have 2 of these wheels,,,,,,,PM me
  20. the U haul it trailer would be a welcome sight I'm sure. I just sold 2 of them a few weeks ago. For decent money And on a side note, I just picked up another 1969 Coronet RT hardtop , I didn't need it as I already had 2 I think. But for a price similar to today's kits, I take any and all I can find for that kind of money . I would LOVE to get another 68 hardtop though.
  21. I think cheap is a touch harsh. then again,,,,maybe not. BUT I'll use myself as an example here. I have no problem paying the current average price point ,,,which seems to be about $30 ea for modern tooled kits.,,,,,,, IF ,,,,,,,,,the modern tooled kit is right . Even though I'm of the time period when $5.99 was the norm for many years. But I realize the past is past and we live in the now. and except it for what it is,,,,or do we ? I chose to support the manufactures with my money IF and ONLY if the product is a quality one. I'll use the 2 modern kits that have my interest. The Revell 1970 Cuda and the Moebius 1965 Plymouth. Neither of which is very close to correct. What makes it worst is BOTH supposedly used CAD software to engineer and tool up from scratch. The Cudas over exaggerated wheel lips and to low of a body line shouldn't happen. Then we have the Moebius Plymouth with its fat lip looking leading edge of a roof combined with the hardly there door opening gaps. WHY and HOW did this happen in the 1st place. If both of these were done right, I would be buying a lot more of them I assure you . If the upcoming Mobeius 1965 AFX Plymouth suffers the same roof issue. I will probably buy , one, maybe 2 and not the dozen or so I have plans for . IMO, the primary issue is all the test run cars All go to the same people to critique it. Which may be fine,,,or maybe its not. Said person may be an expert on the 1968 Chevelle, but know nothing about the 1988 Mustang. Neither of which interests me so I have not held or plan to get either one to see with my own eyes . I'm not trying to bash said people in any way shape or form . its just one persons opinion. If I'm wrong someone PLEASE enlighten me . I'm well aware of the issues with the talked about 63 Ford. Which is mainly the interior. But give the body to a 1963 Galaxie aficionado and I'm told its extremely close to the 1/1 and this kit was designed WHEN 1962 or maybe 1963 ??????? Once completed on on the shelf one cant see the interior, yet the body is out there for the world to see . and 1st impressions are EVERYTHING That said , I have ZERO problem waiting an extra six months for a product to arrive once its announced. IF it rights and to me the body HAS to be right to get me to open my wallet wider and wider.
  22. I'll be in few several of the AFX Plymouths ......at least.
  23. Ive got a few of these already . And at a lot less then Im sure retail will be in this one
