Response to To Answer Your Question

The 68-69 body is the same except for the grill and tail lights. To make it into a 70 would require that you swap the entire grill, hood, headlight buckets, bumper etc. Same for the back end because the tail lights wrap around on the 68/69 whereas they don't on the 70. Depending on what the Moldelhaus parts replace that could be a way to go. It would also require that the entire interior be scratchbuilt since the seats, door panels, dash etc all change. Given what I have seen in old promo/Jo-han/AMT kits that would likely be neccessary anyway.

I do have a Jo-Han SS/AMX kit that I would consider parting out for the engine etc. Is that a valuable kit in itself or is it good fodder for that? I bought it new in about 1990 and it is complete with decals and all.

Thanks very much!
