Daddyfink, that kit version pic you posted is from when AMT ran some Johan tools. I have the "Right On" Maverick Pro Stock they did the same with. I have also heard that AMT's 1967 Toronado was also a Johan, but I have never seen the Johan to compare.

That’s a great model. 

First time we’ve seen any Firestone pad printed tires from R2? Cool. 

Good point..the other PP white letter tires of this era they've done were Goodyear Polyglas.   Maybe they will do a parts pack w/ these.

Isn't this '69 Olds a Jo-Han tool?

I'm likin' the tires that come with the kit, but I'm not buying another kit just to have those tires "on hand."

I'm sure they will eventually offer these tires in a Parts Pack like they the did w/ the Goodyear Polyglas tires.

The upcoming reissue is the late 80s MPC tool, been reissued as an AMT many times. The funny car kit pictured above was an AMT rebox of a Jo-han tool, however.

They don't...yet. I'm guessing they will offer them in a Parts Pack eventually.

After people buy the kits with them...

I looked at the 66 Fairlane today, which has the same (I think) tires, but didn’t want to spend $23 just for the tires...
