I'm again very dubious of this effort . What logo folks ? Coca Cola changed it's colors in the early 1960's from Yellow and Red to Red and White . You can take this MPC 1932 Chevrolet sedan delivery as proof . I actually talked to Coca Cola bottling representatives here locally when I did this one ........

They've been pretty accurate with the previous issues of the.1940 Ford coupe, 1950 Chevrolet 3100 pickup, and the 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air sedan Coca-Cola kits all being released in the proper to the era color schemes and decals. Don't really know why they might screw it up now, especially since any Coca-Cola endorsed products would have to be given a proper release from the Atlanta home offices first.

The McEwen photos at https://www.dragracermag.com/features/feature-tom-the-mongoose-mcewens-tirend-top-fueler-part-2/

shows the car much closer to the Garlits chassis than I remember. Still I wish they'd tool up new panels for the Ivo FE car. The old Garlits body always struck me as wrong. It looks too heavy. Also the rear of the chassis is wrong. Its fixable but it will take a couple of hours.

I believe the Mongoose rail dragster is a 68' car ? 69' Tom McEwen was driving the funny car .
