1972-74 Chevelle Malibu NASCAR Issue (1/25) (fs)

This is the kit that started the private re-issue phase of the late '90's and early 00's. As demand dropped manufacturers became less willing to invest in production runs. This particular kit was commissioned by our friends at Classic Hobby Distributors right here in good ole Atlanta. Sadly, Classic went out of business but sealed examples of the kit that kind of put private production on the map is still around. They selected the mid-70's Malibu because it had not been reissued. The kit was a success and they had a quick sell out which changed the way models were done for about a decade. The box art is a little misleading and shows the '74 Car with the triangular opera window. This kit is more of a 1975 Malibu with the small rectangular opera window.

If you were around the hobby 25 years and going to events and talking to other modelers, you will know that box errors were always talked about and the kits with errors even became more collectible. There is the infamous AMT 1939/40 Chevy Sedan that AMT called a Coupe on the box. Then there were the misspellings. Revell occasional incorrectly spelled Pontiac as Pontic. Before Tom Lowe got a hold of the AMT and MPC tooling during a slightly later period. AMT had some real gaffes in the early 2000's putting the wrong year Barracuda on the box in the Hurst Hemi Under Glass kit and putting the stock '68 Roadrunner in the Pro Street Box.

No one seems to care that much now about erroneous box art, but the box art on some of these kits was flat misleading. No one ever complained much about this one. Everyone was so glad to see the kit again after being gone for 25 years.
