Pontiac Tempest - ‘61 or ‘62

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Looking for an AMT ‘61 or ‘62 Pontiac Tempest; a *stock* kit, or clean restorable build-up, or promo. Not particular about the body style (although I think the  ‘61s are all 4-doors). 

I realize this is a long shot, but you guys always come through for me!

I have stuff to trade.

Please send me a PM.

thanks -

That may be the ‘63 Tempest racer kit with the altered wheelbase. I need one that is factory stock...

I believe that the '63 Tempest altered wheel base kit was the "Funny Farmer".

The AMT "Polyglass Gasser" was a '62 Bonneville.

The newer Round 2 "Polyglass Gasser II" is the '62 Catalina kit in retro packaging.

I have an unbuilt 62 convertible, but it would not be a cheap trade.

This is the body style I’m looking for. Hey Gerry - PM sent!

Thanks, Steve, for helping clarify. It’s the smaller Tempest I’m looking for, not the big Catalina or Bonneville.

Exotics_Builder,

Do you still have the LeMans ragtop kit?  I bought a 1;1 car last fall, have been searching for this kit.  What would you consider a reasonable trade?

Want to attempt a PM?  Wick, 74 yoa and still modeling

I have 2 very restorable 61 4 doors no paint and not glue bombe. I would maybe trade 1 but I am going to keep the other.
