Pretty cool! I didn't even know there was a kit of this. In the mid '70s, one of my best friends drove one of these, in a sort of bright apple green. He absolutely loved the thing. Nice job and model on! B)

Interesting subject that I don't remember ever seeing before. The fit and finish looks perfect and your build looks super clean.

Very cool build of a classic car. Had a ‘72 myself. Fun car to drive.

Your dashboard detail knocked my socks off! You must have very steady hands and drink only de-caf coffee...at 75 years old, I could never do that.

Cool. Nice work.

First car I ever race-prepped, for a sedan class in SCCA.

Thanks, it's kit decals, not a steady hand believe me lol.

Thanks. They have a stock version I would like to build.

The one I built (red and white car on the box) had all the stock pieces in addition to the racing parts. The only things missing were the street tires; only slicks were provided. I built mine as a street version with slicks. I probably could have found some suitable street tires in my parts box, but, you know.... It was a fun kit to build.

This one had some stock parts, but no stock wheels, tires, or seats, no back seat either, and the chrome parts are not chrome in this version.

Interesting that there would be that much difference in what I would assume to be identical kits, Mine had all that except the tires and possibly wheels, There were optional wheels, one set of which I assumed to be stock.
