        I rember when that Modified Stockers series came out in the early 70s. We were all flipping out over the wheels and tires - finally the giant Modified slicks in scale!

        I think there were nine cars in the series.

        As a Modified fan this was like a big break-through model kit series.

              AMT also released them around 2007 with the "Street Stock and Strip" series. Our Wal-Mart even had them back then and we bought them out!

                  Wow! Harry that is a good group of models you have. The car in my pictures is that 1965 Ford Fairlane. I can see some brass chassis built under them.

                      Well,..........for anyone interested, Professor Motor sells a repro of the 1/24 2 piece brass AMT chassis, and he (and others) have NOS 36D motors.

                      The AMT chassis was the best brass plate chassis of its time, and it is still more than competitive with the commonly seen store bought brass chassis under converted 1/24 "Kit" cars.

                      Might be nice to have an AMT chassis under an AMT body kit

                      Cheers

                      This is far from complete,....an original AMT 1/24 adjustable wheelbase chassis. Professor motor has done a really nice repro of these, with all the bits/pieces.

                        Hi Slotcat,.........this one is an original (1965)

                      Super cool Mr. Walker, thank you for the info.

                      Seems to me that all of us should build one? Fun project? I will build my own chassis but I might just get one of these chassis as well.

                        While I agree that building your own chassis is no doubt more fun/more rewarding,.....it would be cool to have a "complete" AMT..........their performance is more than respectable !!

                        I am sure you know what to do with these, but, if you (or anyone) needs help with what parts to look for, and where, or how to build, I will be happy to help !!

                        It would indeed. I don't use any of the vintage motors, so not sure the mount will accept the smaller JAWS/NC-2 (Fk180)

                        Harry, you would need to use (and solder in) a "modern" motor mount to use the FK180's......and, you would need to position the new mount vertically so as to have the motor shaft centerline level with the rear axle centerline.......the 36D motors are much much taller than the FK180's...................OR,........in the name of fun, you could always drop $20 on a NOS 36D motor !!!!!.......take a walk on the wild side !

                        Hi Fitzy, I am sure you know how the chassis goes together and what parts (motor/gears /bushings/axles /body mounts etc.) you may need, but, if not, help is near at hand

                        Cheers
