Nope, no '66.  I don't remember ever seeing a resin one.

There is a resin transkit for $500 on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/324175597709.

Maybe a cross between a 66 Charger and a 67 GTX could get you most of the way there.

 

OR, you could buy that same kit directly from Model Car World for 40 bucks.

$459.99 is quite a markup. ? ,,, over 11 times the original price.

AMT did a ‘65 Coronet 2dr.

Edit: Just googled them both and they are quite different.☹️

The '66 is more closely related to the '67. I owned a '66 Coronet 500 convertible from '84 to around '94, and two '66 4dr sedans. My dad had a '67 Coronet 440 sedan. The body panels are very similar on these two years.

I was under the impression that everything at mcw was “out of stock” and they were all  “built” after you ordered the model.  Right or wrong?

thank you   i wish it was in stock 

On the site, it says all product is cast to order so maybe try sending an e-mail asking about it.

It looks like they cast them on a request basis so maybe you just have to make a request. Can't hurt to ask.

Yea, that seller is high. Every thing that he/she sells is ridiculously over priced. 
 

I often wondered why that kit was never produced.

i wonder if revell might do one eventually  since it would not need to  much changes from the 67    mainly front and back ends  it looks like so they could just tool up some new front and back ends and what ever small other charges there is  use the  body and interior and  chassis and engine from the 67  and boom  they could still have both  kits  then they would need need to do the same for the 69   to back date it to a 68   and  make optional coronet 500 3  bar  taillights for the 69   to make is either a 69 coronet 500 or coronet superbee

when your partner tells you that you have too many models and you have to sell some, but you really dont want to. Of course its worth that much honey, you tell her knowing you wont have to part with any (and if you do you can buy a load more)

Doubt that.

 

That kit has been avail since , what the 80s time frame and nothing has been done to it. IMO nothing ever will.   Ive seen the MCW resin grille and tail lights in person used to convert it to a 66. they are not that good < IMO only

 

 

Ive always wondered why no one ( kit manufacturer or some skilled aftermkt supplier  ) has never tooled up to convert the 67 GTX to a 1966 Belvedere / Satellite .

 

Its beyond my skill level or I would attempt it .
