Vintage AMT Red Alert Racing Team Model Kit 1970 Chevelle Van Trailer Box T-550
VINTAGE AMT 3 IN 1 RED ALERT RACING TEAM 1970 CHEVELLE MODEL KIT T-550. This 1/25 scale kit is a "3 in 1" model for building a 1970 Chevelle, Chevy van, and a four-wheel tilt bed trailer, the complete Bob Hamilton "Red Alert" racing team set of vehicles. The Bob Hamilton Super Stock LS6 Chevelle is one of the most famous drag racing Chevelles ever, capturing the SS/DA class record in 1972 and setting an elapsed time of 10:75 at 123 mph on the way to winning Top Eliminator 14 of 16 events at Bradenton Dragway in Florida in 1976. In mid-1971, AMT took notice of Red Alert's spectacular drag racing performance and hot graphics, and released an AMT Red Alert model in 1972. AMT asked if their logo could be put on the car somewhere, so the logo was added, which has been on the flanks of Red Alert ever since. Original models are now in collections all over the world. This kit is the original 1972 issue (kit has not been reissued, to my knowledge). It is completely unbuilt with most parts in sealed plastic bags or still on their trees. Please examine the photos for yourself or ask additional questions if you need more information. The box measures about 14 3/8" x 10 1/8". Condition of this vintage AMT model kit is VERY GOOD. The box shows some wear and has numerous light brown spots (possibly from moisture) that are visible in the white background.
As I mentioned earlier, most of the parts are sealed in bags or attached to their trees. I did notice that one of the windshields has numerous scratches on it. Overall, this model kit looks great and would make a fine addition to any collection.
Please take a close look at the many photos I've provided and judge condition and completeness for yourself. Most Contents Sealed in Bags.
