Mustang II Coupe

I KNOW for a fact that a coupe was available, and I think it was a Revell kit. It was one of the first few car models I built and suffered a tragic fate. This is a very good conversion! I wish AMT had seen fit to provide a better detailed chassis plate.

OK, that's it. I'm going to have to spring for this. The Mustang II Coupe was not my first car, but it was the first one I loved, and I drove it all over the eastern and Southern US. After putting two new engines in it, I finally had to get rid of of it.

Not long after I joined this forum, folks told me about this: http://www.madmodeling.com/store/ccp0-prodshow/77muscoupe.html

Is that the one you used?

Very nice. I like it. Paint the car brown, and give the windows a bronze tint, you'd have my Dad's '77 Mut II.

By the way, his windows were not tinted by a custom shop of some sort. Or some aftermarket item designed to tint windows. He spent years working on it. One cigarette at a time. And never cleaning the inside of the car. It was gross.

Which is something your '77 Mut II is not, Tom.

My wife owned this '74 V6 Coupe when I met her back in 1978.  I have the MAD conversion, a '74 Mustang kit (I will need to transplant the correct 74 nose onto the resin body) and the correct paint to build it.

Tom. Who is this MAD at makes a conversion to build a Mutt II coupe? If it looks good, I'd love to get my hands on one. I too like the coupe better than the hatchback.

I must differ with you as I remember it clearly, and I believe it was a Revell kit because it used their awful split-pin method of retaining wheels, had their equally awful flat-tread two-piece tires and my mother wanted to know why I wanted that kit instead of the current Pinto like the one she drove... it was molded in a light beige, nearly white plastic.... it MAY not have even had underhood detail.... but it WAS a Mustang II coupe.

Should be easy to find the box on the net......But I have run a hobby shop or in kit manufacturing for more than 30 years, never seen at show, shops or ebay. 

I've won many a bet with folks over kits they think they have......like years ago folks saying they had a 76 Torino kit (we do now but not in 1980) only to bring it in and it was the JoHan 72 Torino. I myself hope you are right and can find a box  picture.....as it would give me a new 'grail'. thx

Not to win a bet, but truthfully I would love to find that darn thing.... especially, thinking of Revell in that period and AMT/MPC holding "all the cards" on annuals... Revell shouldn't have been making a new Mustang II kit anyway!  As far as even finding a box, I spent a while last night surfing and ALL i came up with was the already well-known AMT and MPC 1/25 kits.
