That would be the 1st 65 Comet I buy.  And would buy multiples if the secondary market steps up with decals for it

They were.

So shouldn't the Pegasus name be shown on the box instead of Moebius and Model King?

Model King does "special editions" of previous kits.

Why?   They weren't eliminating the Moebius brand.    When Round 2 bought AMT, MPC, Lindberg etc they didn't change the branding to Round 2.

Somehow I missed that this kit was coming with a cammer motor. that's very cool. The ones we've had in various kits over the decades have been a mixed bag. Hopefully this one is done up right, especially the valve covers.

Cool, that's a must have.
Hopefully they did the SOHC valve covers correct on this one...because the spark plug placement is off on most of the ones made so far.
Here is how it should look.

Unusual placement of the spark plugs, and asymmetrical at that.  Never seen one of these in person before.

Well the spark plug tubes are at the same place right beside the intake valves in both heads, but the valve covers are longer than the heads and go out over the large timing cover at the front and that makes it look asymmetrical.
If you take the passenger side head and put it on the drivers side cylinders...that can of course not be done due to the cam drive wich goes out at the front of each head and would be pointing backwards if you change sides...but if it could be the spark plugs would be at exactly the same place as they are now.
