Were these six the extent of the 1/25 MPC Super Stocker series of kits? 1) 1-2750 GTO Super Stocker (soon to be reissued): 2) 1-2751 Camaro Super Stocker: 3) 1-2752 Chevelle Super Stocker: 4) 1-2753 Mustang Super Stocker: 5) 1-2754 Monte Carlo Super Stock (reissued multiple times over the last decade plus): 6) 1-2755 Barracuda Super Stock: I recall someone here mentioning the Camaro body from the MPC annual kit was used for the Super Stocker-- does that follow for the others, too? Here are the first(?) four shown in the 1974 MPC catalog, which was the original year of release?:
Back in the last days of many short track arena's they were left to their own demise or redevelopment. Along with the loss of the tracks many race cars were also abandoned and forgotten. Often times they were dismantled piece by piece or just left exactly as they were when retired. This one is a tribute to those cars that still remain behind Granddads shed, Service station or in a field somewhere. Like many race cars it stated out as one style, but was re-skinned with an old Chevy body. It has some missing parts, a flat tire, some tools and carb. Lots of rust and debris and a few nests I'm sure. At least the engine was covered! I'm happy to finish this it's been a WIP for to long. As always thanks for looking and your comments are welcome, +/- !
