I was inspired when I got this new kit and started to look for some possible famous first Gen Broncos. I remembered that Mr. Kimble from Green Acres had a '66 Bronco Roadster. So my search went on for reference pics. I saw the other reviews so far and agree with the wheels are too small. I don't mind the tires, the rim size really is a bummer. I also agree with the sides being too flat / straight. I have attached some of my references.

Here is my progress so far, I removed the beltline trim, marker lights to make the truck pre '68.

I'm hoping to see a resin company cast the fiberglass door caps. I had a car for sale or trade (SS Nova) about 7 years ago and one guy contacted me with a trade for his Bronco it was pretty cool, White, full fiberglass body, the door caps were molded with the body, Nice lift, 4X4, little 347 small block... I really thought hard about trading I kinda wish I'd had now. 

My stepdad owned 2... I was too young to remember them vividly but I've seen pictures. One was light met. green with the white stripes, and one was deep purple with white stripes. His first wife rolled the green one so he bought the purple one right after that. I'm gonna add this kit to my collection soon.
