Looks like all the stock parts are there but the body (and glass?). I'd think it would be worth the investment to either convert that body back to stock, or tool up an all-new one.

Yep; that's one that I've been waiting a few decades in the hope that it'd happen!

It's actually the '64 Cutlass annual kit with the modified body as used in the funny car version, minus the funny car bits.  

The AWB chassis for the Olds F-85 AWB kit is the same as used with the Unreal Edsel and '65 Chevelle, correct? Is it different from the chassis used under the AWB '65 Mustang, "Rat Packer" Chevy II/Nova,  Falcon AWB, and/or Tempest AWB cars, too?

The F-85/Edsel/Chevelle used one chassis, the Nova/Tempest used another.  The Barracuda and Corvair use a common chassis.  The Falcon, Mustang, and '67 Cyclone each had their own chassis.

Thanks, Mark. I figured John specifically mentioned those three together for a reason.

I'd be happy if Round 2 somehow had these box art painting stashed somewhere and could release prints of them. Some are downright gorgeous!

Picture from an eBay listing?  The Impala here is a later issue, the one in this kit did not have an engine or a separate hood...

It was in the '68 kits, then skipped the next few years and reappeared in the '73 Caprice.  It stayed in the big Chevy through '76.  Besides the big Chevies, it was used in the Mako Shark (only the original, not any of the derivative versions) and the Carl Casper Turbo Shark (a custom '63-'67 style Corvette that used the Mako Shark chassis).

This trailer's heritage from 1960-62 AMT pickup kits with added parts.

The MPC trailer was created before the ImpalaSS427 kit and not to be confused with the AMT pickup truck's trailer.

Keep a saved search on ebay for "AMT Service trailer" or "Blueprinter service trailer". They pop up often. I have bought them for as little as $15 US. They also pop up at shows frequently. Usually they sell for between $25 and $40. Just have to keep an eye out for them.
