I'm gonna wait until these go on clearance.

Not sure if you have Michael's store in VA, but these kits have been in stock there for years, and they always have the 40% (and sometimes a 50% and 60%) off coupon to use...

I already have one to do the Dick Brannan car, another to do the camera car from Bullitt, and I may get another to do the stunt car used in Bullitt.

Somebody (Perry's Resin?) had decals for this one and I think it was made for the AMT kit.  Always thought it would be a good counterbalance to the all white factory Cobras.

I'm gonna wait until these go on clearance . I worked on the 1-1's as they came off the transporter installing radios , hubcaps and tuning them as half the time , they barely ran well enough to idle . Had this been a Cougar , well.........

I worked in a muffler shop in the early '70s and we did quite a few of these where we would remove the cross flow muffler by cutting the pipe at the start of the bend into the muffler and in front of the chrome tip and making up a pipe to go between the two. This made a really aggressive sounding exhaust and unless you got a real intelligent officer you could even pass it off as factory stock, as is it was still quieter than the Boss Mustang's were and in California you could get away with stating that it was a Boss muffler replacement and they would pass it. Under the CHP testing standards at the time a Boss tested at 108db  with the decibel meter 45 degrees from the exhaust outlet at 50 feet away, it was curious that their list had this system as the loudest production system available for any car. Even louder than the Corvettes with the big block side exhaust.
