There was a Corvette kit too.

Sure would love to see that Firebird kit again!

The MPC '68 Firebird had it too, as well as the '67. 

The AMT '65 Impala had a clear hood but only for the radical custom version.

The issue of this I built in 93 didn't have a clear hood.

I have a vague recollection of seeing or maybe even at one time having a clear hood with the Ford teardrop bubble. MPC '67 or '68 Mustang, maybe? Or was that the clear hood in the AMT '68 Shelby?

That would be the '67 Fairlane kit.

Huh! You're right! But I never had or even saw that kit as a kid, so the one I'm thinking of must have been from something else. :unsure:

ETA: Further research shows the original annual AMT '67 Mustang had a clear teardrop hood. The MPC '68 Mustang had a clear hood, but it wasn't teardrop, it was stock.
