Vintage Corvette Kit

Just posted a very cool model car kit on eBay last week.

49er-corvette

It’s a 1960 vintage Monogram “Forty Niner” series- as in 49¢ retail price. The model is a Chevrolet Corvette and the contents and box are absolutely pristine. Even the decal sheet is intact!

But my favorite part is the little catalog Monogram included in their kits back then. The cover is classic Sixties clip-art with Dad and Junior testing the stick shift on their awesome Visible V-8 model. It really works! As a wee lad I would thumb through these little brochures for hours and hours, salivating over the F-105 Thunderchief or a Don Garlits dragster.
