1/25 AMT '64 Olds Cutlass 442 Hardtop


Recommended Posts

This will be Fantastic if true but,

Is this news positive or just speculation from someone, if it is true I have 2 mint bodies I have bought since the announcement of the convert more than 80 bucks worth of bodies if it comes out I will buy 3-4 more I really like this car but I hate Convertibles.

I would really like to see the 65 GTO 2DR HT  that was done in 65 as a promo only.....I would be in for 6-8 of those.....

Casey is a very reliale source for new kit announcements, so it appears to be true.

Plus it has an official Round2 kit number, so I'd call it legit

It's legit; Round2 has a display kit.  I suspect they will publish a teaser pic soon.

Thistle be great !  Certainly I'm not alone in wondering if :

- Update the transmission to a 4-speed ( all 1964 4-4-2's were 4-speeds )

- Include clear headlamps to affix-atop the moulded-on lamps ( instead of modifying the stock grille )

I've got the F-85 / Cutlass drop-top on order ---- a companion hardtop in 4-4-2 livery will be nice .

This is great news about the '64 442 hardtop, and bodes well for what Round2 is doing with their old tooling.

The '65 GTO promo isn't that great.  They messed up the taillights on that, too!  It should have just had the ribbed panel across the entire back and would have looked better!

Hardtop fans, rejoice:

AMT  1066 -- 1/25 1964 Olds Cutlass 442 Hardtop

Thanks for the heads up on this Casey.  It's impressive how fast Round 2 is getting these oldies to market.  I hope this trend continues.

I wonder if Round 2 would be interested in seeing what we'd like next in this program? There are so many great possibilities.

#1 on my list would be the '67 Galaxie hardtop!!!

  Most definetly the 67 Galaxie hardtop.  And add to that the 68 Coronet R/T.

Oh yeah! In addition, I wonder if Round2 has the MPC 68 Impala tooling.

You should contact them directly and let them know: info@round2corp.com

Back to the '64 Olds F-85 Cutlass Hardtop kit, here's the original instruction sheet for comparison: https://modelkitreviews.proboards.com/thread/1598/amt-64-oldsmobile-cutlass-hardtop
