Love it.  I assume this is the trophy kit?

Yes.

My understanding is that this kit only came in one form, a single issue, was never re-popped and they were all molded in gold plastic.

I have never seen anything to suggest otherwise.

There were promo Dodges available in other colors.

I believe you're right about the glue kit being molded in gold, only.

No doubt that there were promos produced.

I was referring to the kit only.

As far as I know, this was the only 1965 Dodge Monaco kit ever produced.

OH MAN!
I built one in 66, candy green black top! long gone.

I have three of these I got in a parts bin, missing lots of parts!

I THINK I got what I needed from Modelhaus before they quit, not sure!
I really dig this model, UNUSUAL and you did an outstanding great job!

They will make an awesome pair indeed!     Might I know that rear bumper?

I was lucky enuff to find the same kit, and the Custom 880 convertible kit, both in pristine condition. Later on, I found a bunch of gluebombs in a '65 Monaco box. So, I have plenty options for when i get ready to tackle the gold plastic! LOL

Wow! ANOTHER mid '60's Mopar on the board today! Beautiful outdoor shots Steve and it looks like you did something with the headlights. I can't find your original WIP thread, but the whole car looks TERRIFIC!

I have one of these sitting in my stash that's been languishing for about 15 years. A VERY clean rebuilder with only the top painted and UNBROKEN pillars. Seems as though that was a weak spot for those as the kit aged. A lot of times if I see these on the 'Bay built, the pillars are busted.

Now when I'll get to building mine is anyone's guess........... ;)
