Chevette kit

SKU: A105 Category:


A second generation of AMT kits came in 1966 with the introduction of four new kits and four new RTR cars, all using a new brass pan chassis reputed until now to have been designed by Dick Dobson, which proved to be inaccurate. The motor was a Mabuchi FT36D painted in purple color and shared with parent company Dynamic. There were also four new 1/32 scale kits using the FT16D motor and a one-piece brass chassis, quickly replaced by a zinc plated steel unit. The rather ungainly bodies were vacuum formed from butyrate and painted in shades of gold, metallic blue or silver. Devoid of gimmicks, these cars handled extremely well and remain good performers to this day.
