    Those are of my '84 Calais, looking for something pure stock.
    My engine bay was gutted basically and a heater box was installed.

    That's all I could find buddy. The 307 is not gonna be pulled for another year.

    Hay! If you have contacts with REVELL, ask them if they could come out with a roll back flat bed. Nobody has that kit out.:icon14:

    I hope to be pulling the engine out of mine soon to clean it up and freshen it up with new gaskets and anything else it needs. The doghouse is off of it right now. I can get pictures of the bare frame and crossmember, or whatever else you need. I will let you know when I get some pictures.

    I will be pulling a motor out of a pretty much stock 1984 Hurst Olds this Saturday and the designer from Revelle may come out however I was given instruction on what to measure and such for what they need so they are in good hands if the designer can't make the trip out.
    If anyone has photos, please still feel free to share since I have not seen how complete this '84 is yet.

    Revelle is getting close to modelling being completed however Revelle is looking for photos of individual dissassembled 307 engine block, heads manifolds, transmission and other components.
    They are getting very detailed on this one...

    I can take some pics of my engine/trans today, minus carb, later today. I'll need to get it out from under my work bench, and unwrap it.

    Thanks for the offer, Revelle actually came out to my house yesterday and took what they needed from some NOS parts I had after stating specifically what they needed more detail of.
    Turns out they didn't need a dissassembled engine but more detail around the intake, exhaust, oil pan and transmission and not the block/heads as was previously asked of.
    I had everthing but a bare block.

    Do they need a picture of the door panels for the '87 442? That year had different pull handles than previous years, because it was based on the Supreme, which changed that year. I think the Salon kept the pull straps. I can also provide a pic of the 120 mph speedo, if they don't already have one. Not quite ready to pull the engine, but getting very close.

    I spoke to Ed yesterday, the model kit is still in development with no definite release date as of yet since they have many other projects in the works.
    It will come, hopefully sooner rather than later... stay tuned.

    Looks like Angelo received an update from Ed today:

    Ed from Revell models called to let me know the tooling for the 1983 Hurst Olds has started . They also are doing the same for my 1985 FE3-X which you have an option to build a stock*1985 442*also. I loved having these guys out taking pictures of both my cars and taking detailed measurements to do the models from. Should be out sometime this year. I'll keep you all updated.

    Angelo told me he went to Revelle and saw mock ups of the 83 H/O and '85 FE3X model cars.
    The '83 H/O will be released next January and then the FE3X and 442 kits.
    I saw photos of the prototypes and they are VERY detailed.

    Trying to get them to make an '83/'84 combo kit... not sure if they're going to though.
