This is an AMT 1/16 big scale 1964 - 1966 Ford Mustang kit.

It's a fair kit, but there were a few things I didn't like about it. It includes two kinds of tires, an old style bias-ply tire looking set and a more modern performance tire set.

The nice cragar rims are sized wrong for the front, so they only fit the bias ply tire. This means you have to mismatch the tires, which is ok if you go for the street drag racing stance that I did, but it has it's limitations.

The rear has a choice of leaf springs , stock or the ones I used to raise the rear slightly for that aggressive (though a bit retro 1970's) stance. The engine is detailed some with simple paint. Another downside to this kit is a metal axle that goes right through the engine block.

The kit includes an optional Cobra style air cleaner and valve covers, which I used. The hood is removable, and the doors open (I glued them shut). This kit had good chrome, especially on the wheels.

I think if I built another one, I would out source the wheels and tires. It would make a nice street machne, or even a modern touring car if you can bring it up to that detail with aftermarket parts, or a lot of scratchbuilding.
