I built this model when it came out. I was 11. I was very annoyed, though, because my dad and I went to the hobby shop to get the specified paint color (Pullman Green?) and apparently for a short time Floquil combined Pullman Greet and Coach Green in to a paint that was neither. Consequently, my car appears to have been a repaint around the lettering on the pre-lettered sides. Every once in a while I think I should get a matching paint and fix that . . . 60 years later . . .
