Doing some research about 72 Cutlass, some help needed.

Recommended Posts

(First:sorry for my English)

Hey guys, I just ordered myself a Revell's 72 Cutlass.

I'm currently feeling lack of inspiration building lowriders and customs where I feel myself at home so I decided to try something different, like 72 Cutlass. So far I thought I might build it factory stock ,I havent found any custom version of 72 that would instantly stick on me, and Its been a while when I last built a factory stock car .

Yesterday I did some research about the 72 and 71 Cutlass, I thought Saddle Bronze would be nice color. But my concern is the grille part. Someone in this forum mentioned about 71 having black grille and aluminium headlight inserts and 72 having aluminium grille with black headlight inserts.

But searching google had me confused, there are both black and aluminium grille versions on google. So which is correct? I like the black grille much more, I'm not really fond of this robustious mesh some grilles have. I thought hell with it I will build 71 but then I saw 72 having much cooler taillights so I will stick with 72.

This is the grille I dont really like:


These are the ones that look cool in my opinion, but I'm not sure if they are historically correct:

Maybe someone has a close up picture of Revell's kit grille :) .

Any other tips about Revell's 72(what i should do to make it more accurate) are welcome
