Ok you guys are pretty good at this. Do I have them all or am I missing something? (Besides chassis's wise guys!) :tongue:

Dammit Plymouth! Every time you post up one of these I start hunting bodies! Only got the one on the far right myself but I've seen the others and I am tempted. Does seem like a great racing body! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the insight Doba. Yeah I know. I have to make some goop. I don't usually leave the chassis's on my cars, because I don't have enough of them. I guess you could say I'm a body Hoarder. Wait. That doesn't sound right. Body Aficionado? Nope. Hmmm Body Collector? No that doesn't sound good either. Lets just say I keep that chassis on that car because they came together. The wheels are a vintage aftermarket item. They are chrome. I just want to keep them together. Besides I was in a hurry and didn't have time to dig up extra chassis's. Sheesh you didn't say anything on my firebird and semi truck posts.... :tongue:

Assuming the third and sixth cars are set up w/ a light bar, your missing a baby bue/pink (yes pink, beleived to be early singapore paint color error, but I've had a couple and have seen others in collections), there was a MIB all baby blue but w/ out the bowties and NO numbers on the bay a couple of years ago. And you can't forget the black fade "Arrow" stripe....think '57 nomad and the stretch wheelbase Cuda combined stripes. I have seen Gold, Maroon and Green as a base color....there may be more.

And don't forget the JL paint schemes.......if your so inclined.

I try not to lump in the Auto World pieces with AFX. I thought the Black fade Arrow stripe was a Prototype only.

Wasn't sure if you were looking for different colors to race or to collect.......as for the "Black fade Arrow stripe" I have not seen one in the box/blister, but there seems to be a few more of them around then the standard prototype or paint test model.

I wonder if they are clones... Wouldn't be hard for someone good with an airbrush...

All that I have seen I would authenticate as legit vintage for many different reasons......pait is factory tampo consistant, I obtained one from a former employee, All that I have inspected/owned never had glass melted in, but did have the rear bumper!?! I'm thinking premium, maybe for "factory" racers? I have other bodies that were manufactured specific for factory racers.....but it's just my (un)edjucated guess.

I had a blue with clear windows, and a blue that had the two posts that hold the chassis up that were hollow.... someone here got them, maybe a post will pop up. Actually if someone here wanted they could make a really decent post on them!

Pretty sure I have all the ones in your pic, and no others.

Digging the Firebird! I always thought it would be a good idea to resin-cast Firebird noses like that, either to convert Camaros, or to convert Tyco Trans Ams to early- or mid-'70s models...
