Description
 
Folks, with all new tooling and features that have never been offered before in a plastic kit, this one is going to be a sizzler . A hotrodder's dream kit! Brainchild of the late Roger Harney, one of the visionaries behind the growth of Monogram and Revell in particular and automotive modeling in general, this kit was on the drawing board when Roger passed away in February of 2014 at age 78. Roger had been the Senior Vice President of Tooling and Manufacturing for Revell-Monogram. More about Roger's career below.

This amazing all new tooling (2 'n 1) kit includes 2 frames to build either a channeled or highboy version. Powered by a Buick Nailhead V-8, the modeler will have his choice of induction systems, injected or carbureted. The kit has two interiors depending on the version the modeler chooses to build. Some of the really cool features include the Lake style exhaust system, the front end drop I-beam axle, Ford 9" Rear end and the Kinmont style brakes on the front and rear. The wheels are Ford steel wheels with trim rings and small dog dish like Ford logo hubcaps. According to some of the nation's top builders, "this kit includes more new stuff than we have seen in a decade. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Mr Harney and this last gift he has given us."

Please note one issue that has puzzled some modelers. The kit includes two floor pans, part # 13 and part # 62. The directions incorrectly indicate use of Part # 13 on one of the building versions. Actually, Part # 13 is a future part for Coupes and other planned versions. For this particular kit, the Roadster (2 'n 1), you will use Part # 62 for both teh Highboy and Channeled versions.

Mr. Harney quickly rose through the ranks at Monogram, becoming a kit designer and earning accolades for his Long John Dragster, Green Hornet and a 1-to-8 scale Chevy engine. That led to the Big T series, which included industry firsts such as wiring and printed instrument gauges. In 1963, Mr. Harney joined management and ran the model shop for a decade before becoming its head of engineering in 1972. In the late 1980s, Monogram merged with Revell, and several years later he moved to research and development, where he took the lead in developing pre-finished graphics and Revell's die-cast models. Mr. Harney was later named director of manufacturing, outsourcing and engineering before becoming senior vice president of tooling and manufacturing. He had planned to retire later this year.
