Any casters interested in a 63 Rambler American 2 dr. station wagon?

Recommended Posts

The master is done, many of the molds have been made by a well respected caster. The body mold still needs to be done and possibly the chassis and int tub I will have to check. I know the molds are done for the headlights, taillights, hubcaps, bumpers, engine and hood. It's a high parts count kit. body, chassis int tub, dash, st wheel, hood, six cyl. engine, h/l, tl/, h/c and maybe something I have forgotten. Have lost interest in it but would like to see someone finish it up. I would like four complete copies in return for the whole works. It was based from a johan kit, the were a bit larger than 1/25th scale, possibly 1/24th or 1/23rd. I can provide photographs of everything to an interested party. Thanks. Paul

Wow Paul! I can't remember the last time I've seen one of those on the road! Those were once a staple of working class families and in fact, I believe when my Mom was learning to drive at the local driving school (circa 1967) that's what they had.  That odd slanted B pillar sticks out in my mind.

That would be one cool model to detail out! B)

Somebody had a body for a '61-'63 two-door wagon displayed in the Primer class at NNL Milwaukee last weekend - looked pretty good so far.

So the first interested party has dropped out of sight so the offer is on again. All molds are done except the body and interior tub. Post photos of some of the molds. I'm currently fixing a few spots on the roof.
