This is my 60 Ranchero from AMT

This is certainly an OLD kit. It might be a new release of it but the mould lines and flash were difficult to handle. Not to mention the A pillar was wonky, needed to reheat and re shape the a pillar and roof stance.

Very limited parts, and not a lot of great detail. For that reason I didn’t spend a whole lot of time on it. But hey I’m still happy with the way it looks, will do nicely in the display cabinet ☺️ Thanks for looking

This build turned out very nice. I built one of these a couple of years ago, it is not one of AMT's better efforts that's for sure. The engine is supposed to be a big block Chevrolet, just not like any other big blocks you may have built before. The trim all looks nice and the assembly is cleanly done.

Was that kit ever made with a stock 6 cylinder engine.

No. At first it was a curbside when released in 1961, then same in 1962 as a customizing kit. The hood wasn’t opened until a release much later and that Chevy v8 from the 66 Chevy kit appeared.

Round 2 added the 1960 grille in the latest release
