Another 1/32 scale car from my youth. This is a Monogram curbside. I built it about 30 years ago (before I discovered BMF!!). No comment on the interior color (hey,it was the 80s?). The tires are styrene.

I had one of these cars in 1979. It could carry a lot of stuff but it was really a pain to pack that rear cargo area. Think hatchback without the hatch. The rear seat folded forward and the partition between the interior and tiny trunk was removable to you could feed in some long bits of lumber through the side windows.

Pretty impressive. I always had a soft spot for it, despite the obvious hatch flaw in the Plymouth design. The little 273 V-8 meant it was always underpowered compared to other early muscle cars.

Thanks for the compliments! When we were teenagers, my neighbor, my sister and I each had '66 Barracudas. My sister had the slant 6 while my friend and I had the little V8. She still had that bullet-proof slant 6 ten years later when our troublesome V8s were ancient memories!

Way cool! Well done. Did not know this kit ever existed. We need a new tool 1.25 for sure!

Nice build! The interior colour is certainly 'odd-ish' but it kind of goes with the black body - then again I lived through the '80's so my opinion is likely biased, lol.
