Does anyone produce reproduction parts for the old AMT slot car kit? I recently acquired this one (thanks Gary!), but it's a bit of a glue bomb, with the wheels and tires being the worst parts. Also, does anyone produce decals for these cars? Thanks...

Check out Pattos Place @ www.pattosplace.com

he carries slot car bodies, parts and decals (lots and lots of decals)

he's located in Australia...but that has never been a problem

good luck

Tamiya has a body kit that may help you

I have an unmolested Hussein kit from that AMT series.

That’s a good find - better than most that are out there.

I wish AMT would reissue these old CanAm kits - they make good looking models.

So far my hunt has come up with... nothing. I had no idea this little car was so rare.

it would probably be best to save a search on ebay for it and see if parts cars come up. I do come across them occasionally. also check with fred stern (sorry don't know contact info I used to mailorder from him) because he gets in lots of odd kits and parts and may well be able to help you.

its too bad someone doesn't repop these and the Hussein as AMT doesn't seem to be interested in the job

The styrene tires should be relatively easy to find. Not many people want those, and they can usually be found in great shape for that very reason. maybe put a want ad up in the Wanted section and see what happens?
