Box Top #6

Here's a fantastic piece of box art from Aurora that I found over at the Nostalgia On Wheels blog and I'm guessing the model was the Honda Hawk. Upon closer inspection I noticed that the artwork was signed by none other than Mort Kunstler. I had no idea that he worked at Aurora.

Kit Car

Long before Carroll Shelby's Cobra became the most prolific kit car on the planet, AMT released this D.I.Y offering for aspiring sports car drivers.

I have posted this box art previously but thought this better scan was worth sharing.
