SHARED CHASSIS?

Recommended Posts

I noticed an extra front axle(with poseable steering) on the parts tree of the R/M '41/'43 Willys pickup and it got me wondering- What other kit shared that chassis?

Most likely it wasn't a different kit, but rather a different version of that same Willys.

Whoops! Didn't notice the Pick Up part! 

I believe that some of the parts trees where also shared with the Henry J and the Austin Gasser

If I remember correctly, the steering axle was in the original kit and the non-steering, lowered axle was added in the Hot Rod series release.

Most MPC MoPar B body kits shared an almost identical chassis pan. The original 65 Coronet  (molded by MPC but sold by AMT) has a pan almost the same as the 67-70 Charger annuals and even the Dukes of Hazard and 70 Coronet.  I don't have too many B boy variations, but I know that these are almost the same.  The AMT 65 Coronet has full rear wheel wells and the front sub-frame has the wrong shape, but everything else seems the same. I don't know when MPC took off the wheel wells or corrected the front, but I don't think it took too long.
