    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

My first impression when seeing this was Fury police car.

I think that's the custom grille from the JoHan '69 Roadrunner.

Can anyone identify which kit this bench seat came from?: *edit* AMT '67 Lincoln Continental

The emblem looks very Lincoln-y, so my WAG would be some sort of AMT Continental. Now as to what exact year, I have no idea. Maybe Ron H or Steven G would have a better idea.

It does seem like it'd be from some type of high end model (Continental, Imperial, etc) with such a fancy seat design on it. I thought AMT Monte Carlo, but those all seam to be molded with the console. Most of the early AMT Continentals have a full tub interior with the seats molded in, and the '65 Continental is very similar, but the center section looks different looking at the part on an eBay listing.

I'm thinking '66-'69 Continental, not sure of the year though.  AMT probably stopped doing interior updates after the last promotional models, so it could be more than one year.

1967 Lincoln, one year only I think.

Anybody know where this molded in lime green then plated piece, which has a slight taper along the long dimension (~1" long) came from? It looks like the lime green plastic Monogram molded a few kits with in the '70s (Horn Toad, Poison Pinto, Duster's Last Stand F/C, T'rantula, etc), but it doesn't ring any bells for me. It looks like a split rear spoiler, bumperette (I though Pinto Street Rod, but no), or ????

That is a custom grille insert from the MPC '70 Cuda annual (one of a pair).

I'm guessing late '70s or early '80s RWD hatchback or fastback of some sort (based on the exposed/carpeted rear floor/cargo area), AMT or MPC. Rear has a 4-link suspension, front upper A-arms, looks like a 4-seater. I think I've ruled out Monza, Mustang II, Pinto, GM F-body, and MPC Toyota Supra. :blink:

Easy one. MPC '67 Corvette coupe, possibly an original annual issue, but also just as likey from one of its many reissues.

I'd go with the annual...I've got a couple of different reissues, and I don't think any of them have the "427" on the scoop because all of them have small-block engines.
