'70 Shelby GT 350 Convertible in 1/25
Posted by miwi on Wednesday, June 09, 2004 7:59 AM
Hi,

I want to build a '70 Shelby GT 350 Convertible. What other kit instead of a '77 ford Mustang from MPC has a 351 W engine? Or where can I get the an accurate 302 cui engine?

I don't know where you would find a 351 Windsor.The 302 is pretty easy.The Revell '32 ford,the 289 from one of the older Mustang kits (the 289 and 302 are externally the same),Revell Mustang G.T..Although you would have to swap the fuel injection for a carb.And there are other kits out there with the 302.Good luck.

For a 351 windsor try this. A well detailed 302 block( revell 32 ford is a good start), Then swap the heads for a set from aa AMT ford nascar kit. May work.

Hey Kris,That totally reminds me.I made a 351 W once by taking a 302,addind sheetplastic to the block where the intake and heads glue on,then,glue the heads on,widen the intake to fit and there you go.Because a 351W is a little taller and a little wider than the 302 due to a taller deck height.The Nascar heads would represent the Cleveland engine.Good luck.

DUH, I cannot believe I did not think of this. AMT made a series of mid 90's f-150's, all had 351w's. They were fuel injected so, you mat want to try to come up with a carb and, intake set up.

Yet another 351w Revells 98 saleen mustang has a F.I. 351w, also has a supercarger. It is backed by a 6 speed tranny.

Was gonna mention that one. Sure it has EFI and a S/C but the heads will be correct. I have that kit. Not a bad kit. My windshield was warped but the engine is has descent detail.

Hello Michael, how are you doing the body? Are you going to cut the top off a '69 GT500? Would this work? I thought all of the convertibles where made from coupe bodies and not fastbacks. Good luck. Sounds like a killer project.

Monogram to a monogram i would use the engine out of the 80s ford F-150 4x4 flareside kit.............just hack the tranny off and use the 4speed from the 428 engine in that stang kit Michael..........Or use the complete engine.......detail isnt to bad!

Just my two cents!

Hello CAD-guy,

I had strarted with cutting of the fastback body. But then I got a Mini Exotic convertible body. That makes it a lot easier
