'69 Mustangs....

Recommended Posts

Friday, I was able to install the DMouldworks '69 Mustang corrected front end on the model, and it came out pretty good. I am going to start a thread on this one under its own heading.

If you have an original AMT 69 Mustang, and you don't like the chassis, us the new 67. Same wheelbase, same exhaust. It fits wonderfully. I'm working on a fleet, as we speak.

The AMT '69 annual body was not reworked into the '70.  It was more likely reworked into the "longnose" '69 funny car body, which uses the same trim pieces. 

The AMT '70 was all new at the time.  After the '70 annual, the body was reused in the Mach Won funny car, the chassis and engine recycled into the '71-'73 annuals.

Probably true. I have both kits;69 and 70. Doesn't seem like too many common parts

Probably true? I've learned that if Mark says it, you can take it to the bank. B)

I thought Tim Boyd and I had a handle on the old kits, but Mark is The Man. B)

I know the thread is old, but I always hate starting new thread s on same subject.

I am trying to build a couple of slot cars 1:24 scale.

which kit would best fit my chassis.  Wheel base is adjustable but usuaaly inthe 4.5; range width is bigger factor, I think, it is just under 3" to outside of the wheels.

 

I have a  ,unk manufacture, and it is too narrow, it looks like an open wheel. I want to go 69 and would like most of the wheels under the car.

Just thought I'd show a couple of interesting parts found in the mpc/amt '69 kit... a rally pac and an a/c bezel.

These are obviously left over from earlier incarnations of the mpc mustang as they are definitely not factory issue on the '69, just the '65/'66.

Yup.  Those parts have been there since 66.  Nice accessories for the early AMT kits.

Knee knocker AC was not available on 69-70 Mustangs, actually I think AC  was intergrated into dash either 67 or 68. Even base Mustangs with factory AC used dash vents.

Yeah, Ford started offering proper integrated A/C in the Mustang in '67.  Those are leftover parts from the original MPC '66 annual...I've seen them in every MPC '69 kit I've had...don't recall if the '70 annual had them also.  Pretty sure they were gone from the '71 kit.

I'll have to look in my MPC/Ertl-AMT '69 Mustang Mach 1 for that old Ford under dash A/C unit. I'd like to use it in my Revell '65 Mustang 2+2. I never paid that much attention to notice that piece was in the '69 kits.
