I bought this because it was on clearance at my local craft store.  I never thought much of MPC models, but they do provide models not available from other makers.  This is a quick build mostly OOB.  Not bad for an MPC. Paint is ModelMaster Chrysler Yellow.

I felt a little whacky at the time, so I added some decals from the parts box and made it the elusive Chrysler "Six-Pack-Hemi" with an Air Grabber hood.

















Thanks for looking.
Mike

I agree that '70s MPC kits were below others in quality.  However, they were survivors where the standard year-by-year releases from AMT vanished.  I remember most the lousy thick chrome plating and molding details like trim and emblems were poor. 
    That said, your model is the opposite.  It looks crisp and clean and puts a big smile on my face! Shades of U.S. 30  drag strip in Northern Indiana.

Sorry, Al. I bought it and started fiddling while things were drying on the big scale project. It went really quick.

Thanks everyone.
