That isn't the '65 Pace Car. It looks to be a '67 Cyclone made to look like the '66 Pace Car, a '66 Mercury Cyclone. I drove a real '66 hardtop for years and it was one of my favorite cars.

You're right...had to improvise a little. The car was the AMT 67 Merc Cyclone with Fred Caddy decals and a chopped off roof. After I built this kit, some nice resin caster offered the 66 model.

I'm not much of a Ford man and I forgot the right year. ThanX for pointing it out!

Beautiful Merc. I love it. Do you recall who made the '66 Comet in resin. I have been waiting for a '66 from AMTever since the '67 was released.

Hey bigdog, I offered to help out with the Bench Racer deal but they weren't at all interested. I've gotten used to it. LOL
