Very nice. I have one that is stalled out. I filled the t tops as well. Did you use the kit tires? Why didn't you black out the rear panel?

VERY nice..... Looks to be an MPC chassis if my memory is correct. Wish Revell would retool this kit

Drive it like you stole it.....................

Thanks for the comments guys. Yes that is the MPC chassis along with the interior tub, and tail lights. Tires are American Satcos, with wheels, and rear shocks from the 1969 Revell Shelby kit. AMT Nascar Thunderbird contributed the engine and trans as well.

BTW, the body is from the Revell California Cobra kit, not the Monroe Handler kit.

Hi Crazyhorse, I came across your post while searching for Mustang Monroe Revell kits for sale on ebay.  I couldn't help notice the nice job you did on this one.  I'm thinking of recreating one with a Stallion Mustang as I like the tri-color colour and mag wheel combo, and brtings me back to my kid years of course as I had built one.

I also niticed your color selection for all (3) colors is bang on with the web photos of the actual Monroe Handlers.      

What colours did you use on this one?

Excellent work! Those were not Revell's best products ever! You pulled that one back from the mediocre! The real car was quite nice, the kit not so much...
