Premier 1961 American Compacts

This has got to be one of my best finds! It is a 4 model set of 1961 Compacts, including the Comet! They are individual models that came all in the same box! They include the Plymouth Valiant, Ford Falcon, Chevy Corvair and the Comet. Stated simply as Comet, another example of the car not being a Mercury yet! The models are pretty much un-built and intact. Only the Comet (figures) has a few parts put together. Although they have engines included they are not as detailed at the AMT Comet models. They are also 1/32 in size instead of the standard 1/24.

(High Quality Pictures but It's Worth The Wait To Load)

Here is the box cover showing the 4 models included.

Here is the inside of the box showing the individual boxes for each model.

Here are the 4 seperate models removed from the box!

Here is the Comet model box.

Here is one side of the instruction sheet.

Here is the other side of the instruction sheet.

(High Quality Pictures but It's Worth The Wait To Load)

Here is the box. It had a nasty bend in it. I sprayed it with water, shaped it and clamped it to dry in the correct shape.

Here are the parts. Some are missing but it does have chrome parts which the other Premier models I have do not.
