Looking for 1/25 Ford Boss 302 Engine
Posted by markdoo on Friday, January 11, 2019 10:39 PM

I am looking for the complete 1/25 Ford Boss 302 V8 engine found inside the AMT/Ertl 1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator kit.  Prefer unbuilt/unpainted.  I have a fairly-extensive parts box to trade from.  Thanks!

That kit is harder to find than the Revell '70 Boss 302 which has the "same" engine (and I think it looks better than the one in the AMT kit).  You might consider that one instead...

 

Oops, I just realized the scale difference.  Sorry.  I have the '69 kit and don't want to part with it but I could look into making some molds for you that you could then cast your own parts.  If you are interested...

I'm specifically looking for the '69 Cougar's Boss 302 engine pieces; its one of my favorite kit engines to build. I don't have a use for molds either; I don't do any resin casting. Thanks anyway

I had already contacted Fred about that Cougar kit he had, but it was sold last week. Still searching...

Some more information regarding these engine parts request:

I recently started a vintage 1/25 AMT/Ertl 1968 Shelby Mustang project, and decided that I wanted to build this kit using the 1/25 Boss 302 Ford engine found inside the AMT/Ertl 1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator kit, (this happens to be my favorite kit engine of them all and will work nicely in converting my '68 Shelby into a GT350).

So, what I'm looking for is the complete, unbuilt/unpainted 1/25 Boss 302 Ford engine from the AMT/Ertl 1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator kit.

I have a variety of 1/25 engine projects, pieces and parts to offer-up in-trade; the following are some descriptions, (I can provide pics via PM to those interested in possibly making a trade):

1).  1/25 MPC 1969 Pontiac Firebird's Factory-stock 225ci 6-cylinder engine. This one is complete and all unpainted/molded in Black.  The engine block, oil pan and head cover have been glued together, (clean and straight).  I modified the head cover in an attempt to make it look less "Pontiac" and more like a generic General Motors 6-cylinder.  The transmission was missing from this project, but a simplified replacement piece was scratchbuilt and added in. A copy of this engine's instruction sheet is included.

2).  1/25 MPC 1987 Ford Mustang GT Factory-stock 5.0L, (302ci), V8 with an automatic transmission.  This one is complete and all unpainted with many parts still fresh on their trees/molded in Red.  The intake/induction piece in this group of parts was taken from another kit because it has 5.0 LITER with a Galloping Horse and HO lettering emblem molded into it and looks much crisper than the same piece from the MPC kit.  A copy of this engine's instruction sheet is included.

3).  1/25 MPC 1978 Chevrolet Nova Factory-stock 302ci, (also looks like a 350ci), V8 with a 4-speed transmission.  This one is unpainted with the engine block, front cover, heads and oil pan all glued together, (clean and straight)/molded in Black.  There were a few pieces missing from this project, but enough replacement pieces have been added to the bag so you'd have some build-options and can complete the engine.  Taken from other kits were 3 sets of different valve covers, a pair of factory-stock exhaust manifolds plus a pair of shorty-headers and 2 different styles of factory-stock-looking air cleaners.  No instruction sheet included for this project.

4).  1/25 AMT 1964 Chevrolet Impala Factory-stock or drag racing 409ci V8 with a Manual transmission.  This one is unpainted with just the engine block glued together, (clean and straight).  These parts are molded in Light Gray with many chrome parts still on their trees.  It has most of the parts needed to build the drag racing engine with finely-ribbed chrome valve covers; only missing the 2 drag headers.  It is missing the following Factory-stock engine pieces, fan belt, fan, alternator, oil fill tube, distributor, intake manifold and stock exhaust manifolds.  A copy of this engine's instruction sheet is included.

5).  1/25 AMT 1963 Buick 401ci V8 with a Manual transmission.  This one is unpainted with the engine block, (with oil pan and front cover already molded into the block pieces), and heads glued together, (clean and straight)/molded in White.  This was a project I intended for a street rod build, and I hated that the engine had a metal-front-axle hole molded into the block halves, so I carefully "patched" that axle hole with parts from another oil pan.  This one has several optional parts to customize your build of this engine; it has 2 pairs of exhaust manifolds plus a pair of short-headers that have extended pipes on them, 2 pairs of finned valve covers, 2 intake manifold pieces that each build-up for a 3-deuce carb set-up with a chrome air cleaner caps, piece included.  No instruction sheet included for this project.

6).  1/25 AMT 1966 Ford Mustang Factory-stock 289ci V8 with no transmission/molded in Red.  This is from an old built-up and is the worst set of parts in this offering.  The engine block is glued together and painted a Flat Green/Blue color.  The heads and 2-carb intake manifold are also painted this same color.  This one is restoreable and could pretty-easily become a glue-bomb rescue.  It is missing the 2 valve covers, the fan and 2 carbs. No instruction sheet included for this project.

7).  1/24 Monogram Chevrolet 396ci big-block with an Automatic transmission molded in Light Gray, (I don't know for certain what kit these engine parts came from).  This one has its parts still attached onto their parts tree and they are all unpainted.  It is missing the 2 valve covers, intake manifold, carburetor, distributor, air cleaner and fan belt, (although it has an electric fan on the parts tree).  No instruction sheet included for this project.

8).  1/25 Revell 1934 John Buttera Ford Coupe Street Rod 302ci Ford Cobra V8.  This engine is complete, painted and 80% built-up.  The paintwork is per the kit's instructions, and is cleanly-done.  A few parts have come loose from this engine, but are all included to be added back on, to complete this engine. No instruction sheet included for this project. 

9).  1/25 PSF Model Supplies Resin Edelbrock Valve Covers and Air Cleaner set.  These resin parts are unused and still sealed inside their original packaging.

10).  1/25 Revell Mickey Thompson's Attempt-I Drag Car Chrome Blower parts.  This is a bag full of parts pulled from a built-up of the kit's twin, 4-cylinder motors.  Vintage parts that will definitely need some clean-up.  

I would be willing to trade several of the items described above for those complete, unbuilt/unpainted 1/25 Boss 302 Ford engine pieces from the AMT/Ertl 1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator kit.  Please PM me with the numbers from the listing described above for whatever you might be interested in. Thanks!
