AMT? Chrysler Imperial?

11 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

I built this model years ago for my dad and I got it out a while back and put a clear coat on it and put all of those dumb horses back on that had fallen off over the years and surprisingly done of them got lost and there are 10 of them on and in the car.

I'm pretty sure this kit was from some TV show but I can't for the life of me remember.

Nice build Marty!

That's actually an Imperial ('64-'65?) which was the only full frame Chrysler that year as the rest were already unibody at that point.

Yes, that car came from a TV show which I can't remember the name either, 'cept to say I think that was originally an AMT kit. B)

You after going back and looking at it your right it is a Imperial, don't know why I didn't look at it before posting. Oh wait a min, that's right it was down stairs and I was up stairs and too lazy to go down and look at it. B)

And the more I think about it, it more then likely is an AMT kit.

I think that Imperial was from a show called "The Hero"...but not 100% sure. Definitely an AMT kit.

It's from a TV show called The Hero starring Richard Mulligan. The car is a '66 Imperial.

Thanks!! I built it way back when I lived in Pontiac, MI so it's been a long time ago as I moved to the gates of Hell (AZ) :rolleyes: back in 81' and if I remember right I repanited & BMF it back in the late 80's to early 90's and then it got moved around a lot, but most of the time it was always in some kind of a case.

Thanks for looking and all of the replies.

Glad you built it the way it was meant to be built. I love too see these old models that show up built. Another case of an old AMT made in to a jewel.
