That is true. MPC lied a little bit on their marketing

The pics on IMCDB show a 1968 Coronet 500, which has a special grille and chrome trim around the side scallopes. The car has 68 taillights as well, but has side scoops, which weren't available on a real 68 Coronet, they are a 69 thing. If a 69 car got side scoops (optional), they were only available on the Super Bee and R/T, both of which don't have chrome trim around the scallopes. The movie car also has some non-stock hood scoops. I personally am glad one can build a stock 69 Coronet R/T convertible from the MPC kit. I don't care much for the movie car.
