I believe this kit was issued during the great Walmart debacle, which nearly destroyed the domestic model car industry. Many AMT kits released during this era had any optional parts removed from their kits to reduce manufacturing costs as much as possible. The 55 Nomad was also released in Walmart specific box art with a green/white roof car that may also be devoid of optional parts, though other releases with this same colour car on the box art had the parts. It is quite confusing trying to determine which releases has the extra parts and which don't, though most releases of this kit have them. Your best bet is to ask the forum about a specific release before buying, just to be sure. I wouldn't be surprised if Round 2 has restored the optional parts on a subsequent release. It's a great kit, and one of my all time favorites.
