 You can get a coupe here www.motorcityresincasters.com You will need to supply your own wheels/tires and, motor. I have one myself and, am very happy wth it.

 Just a note about the Motor City Resin kit: it's the GT, not the Sport, so the rear window area is a little different.  You may be able to combine it with the racing kit to get a stock Sport, but I don't know how easily the parts would fit together.

Hy! thank's to all 4 the suggestions...maybe I can take a resin kit and try to take some parts from the nascar race car amt or an old jo-han kit my hope it's the parts adaptability.

one big boubt it's like I can get chrome the front or rear bumper?I've seen that the resin kit haven't it cromed...I've thought to paint with a special color but my first results are badly.

if someone of you have a different solution for this kind of trouble...I listen...with pleasure...

this Torino....an obsession...

 Modelhaus has both front and rear bumpers for the Torino (and their chrome work is as outstanding as their general resin work).

if you are going to build the gran torino sport then you will have to scratch build the interior the interior in the resin kits and johan kits have the door pannels of the model 65b the base door pannels the sport model 63r has molded door pannels . I have 2 (two) 1:1 cars the fast back (63r and coupe (65b) if you need photos of the molded pannels let me know copcarnut

If you ever need to get parts chromed go to chrometechusa.com    I just had them do a bunch of stuff for me, they came out looking great.

this Torino....an obsession...

 

i suggest you write to Revell asking them to make the gran torino sport (ie email). i did. i'm sure they don't mind a few product suggestions from modelers.

if enough people ask, they might tool one up.

Hi Andrew I think I'm holding what you are looking for

Awfully nice of you to offer to help someone. But did you notice that the post you're replying to is seven years old? I don't think that member is even active here, any longer. Please check the dates of the posts that come up in searches, to make sure that what you might want to add to the topic is still relevant. Smile, Wink & Grin
