I doubt it. Either a 1/32 scale,or their interpretation of the "coupster". I suppose it could've been a '38.

Naw John, the 38 if thats what ya call it is a reincarnated Boyd rod . Testors did it back in the deep darkk ninties . Linburg managed to resruect the tool and pop it out as pehaps , a "new model ".............. Hey, have fun with it , it wasn't my type of a build then . Ed Shaver

thanks for the replies...it's listed as 1/24 scale looks to be based on there 37 ford custom conv. same wheels & chassis. did a e-bay search and can't find one. several e-stores list is as out of stock that's why I was wondering if it was ever really made.. :unsure:

You're right, Dave's Showrods 'site has some pics of the 2000 Testor's release of the kit: http://www.showrods....s/coupster.html

Did Lindberg ever reissue this kit, or is the Testors version the only one to have been produced?

If you scroll down on that Linberg link they are also showing a 37 convertible and a 38 sedan delivery.... wonder if we'll ever see those ??

The roadster version was called Boyd's Smoothster after the actual car. All 3 of these should be readily available on the auction sties and some of the online retailers.
