59 EL CAMINO PARTS QUESTIONS
Posted by 6 on Sunday, May 20, 2018 8:41 PM

Friends:  Is the translucent red part #501 supposed to be a sun roof?  I don't see it in the instructions.  

Also, what kind of engine is the street rod option?  How many C.I.?  I noticed the Cadilac valve covers.

A picture would go along way in helping. Also, this is the AMT kit?? As far as I know, its never had a sunroof, but then I don't have all the issues. The engine is a Caddy, circa 1956?

I don't see a red part that looks like a sunroof , a clear one possibly .

Yes; it's AMT's (Round2) most recent "Street Rods" release.  Slow's photo looks like the cutomizing 3 'n 1 kit from the Modeling Madness site (older release).   I'm referring to the street rod supercharged V8.

On the red clear part, It's a left over from a prior release that is not in the instructions.  I ruled out a sunroof.  I'm told it might have been a camper bed top window.

Anyone?

 I'm going with 390 C.I. Cadillac engine.  Anyone think otherwise?

Does the part match any of these?

 

 

And 390 sounds good to me.....

Yeah; that red clear part looks like a side window.  It's an oddball single part on the new release that's not referenced.

Hey - how are you adding your images?   I like how you're doing that.
