In my opinion this is the one of the best super stock kit ever produced, and I think the first kit made with only a super stock version. I can remember how l couldn’t hardly wait for it’s release back in the late 1980’s or somewhere around there. After building both kit version’s Fred Caddy printed up five new decal sheets for it, and of course I built all of them. So here are two that go along with the 4CB00D1C-6FAA-48B3-8361-33C540B88F8A.thumb.jpeg.b6f990a7a79406c15cfa7146c010c108.jpeg31044E77-1256-456D-860B-A1DD0BC44C6E.thumb.jpeg.800621112dc29e738a1f6b79a6acc1c5.jpeg1B5DAE53-0158-451B-A6C5-E979AFAFA1CD.thumb.jpeg.3ff85360738b5e9a0d1f810e03cf9a48.jpeg8B111472-2C29-4B63-A81F-23F31EFB4D08.thumb.jpeg.da8cc230455e778920aeaeea1ca04494.jpegEC5F7AF3-9276-4E91-B145-ED22DA1BB84C.thumb.jpeg.e6d9b19c780b7a37148f0b32e67c7dca.jpeg98788F16-5D5A-4E56-879C-1542449BDD74.thumb.jpeg.452ac656bae8cba925a8e275c40037fb.jpeg75BFE8D4-0E0E-4FD2-8613-86F73E49997E.thumb.jpeg.375417426a0903bbf01b7914a1de737c.jpegBob Ford Mustang from my vol #8 of building the covers.

Both great looking builds. I agree these are very well-done kits with a high-fidelity level with both the body, engine and the interior. I had the good fortune to be at the Pamona Winter Nationals when these cars debuted, and they were dominate.

Very nice builds of a wonderful subject. I’m with you on this being one of best SS kits ever released, I’ve built two so far (Dick Brannan’s and Gas Ronda’s) and could easily build a few more if I could find some interesting usable decals. The other SS kits I keep building are the AMT ‘62 Bel Air (3), the Lindberg/ AMT Round 2 ‘64 Dodge (3), the AMT ‘64 Plymouth Belvedere (2) and the Moebius ‘65 Plymouth’s (3). Can’t wait for Moebius to release their ‘65 Dodge kits!

This car went to Paul Moody in 1967 and became the Expressway Gulf Thunderbolt.
