AMT 50 Chevy pick up question

Recommended Posts

Does the AMT 50 Chevy pick up  (Texaco version)  have the street machine versions lowered suspension included in the box?  Thanks for the help.

No.  The stock issues have stock parts only, the street machine version has the dropped axle and some other unique parts, and no stock parts.

They've reissued the stock one several times now. I'm ready for a 2n1 or maybe a an updated street machine version with new style wheels and low-profile tires or maybe some 50's style salt flats wheels and tires.

The street machine version has an odd combination of parts: Eighties-style rolled pans front and rear (no bumpers are included), along with custom wheels that might have been "in" for about fifteen minutes in the mid-Eighties...

C'mon, who's not itching for a set of "sawblade" directional 3-spokes to slap on their latest build? ;)

Man I was awesome when I had those wheels on my truck.  I won't say when or where, but let's just go with the assumption that Southeast US was a little behind.  No mullet though.  LOL

Today's big wheels may not age well either.  :-)

I think you may be very much on the money on that assumption:)

Did they use those wheels on something else aswell? I'm fairly certain that I have had some AMT/Ertl promo of some GM Concept car with wheels that looks like that.
In a different color and on another type of vehicle they could possibly work (I'm thinking of something european or asian hot hatchback or coupe from the 80s or maybe 90s).

The idea of a lowered suspension in that kit make me want it even if I already have several of the stock versions.

The Corvette Stingray III had 3 spoke "Twist" wheels that look somewhat similar.

Ahh, so that's the one:

I had no idea what it was as I never had a box for it and the underside only had the GM trademark and AMT /Ertl logo. My kids have played with it so it no longer exist in anything but loose parts.
Not just 3 spokes but also 3 lugnuts:lol:

I had to puzzle over it for a minute because I forgot all about the promo, but Revell did a full detail kit of it at the time.
