New Monkees Mustang (OOB)

It’s not a surprise when companies try to associate themselves with what’s “new” and “cool”. While modelling in the 2020’s might not be quite so fixated on this, there was a time when modelling was a more general hobby and companies did try to ride the coat tails of profitable and hoped-to-be profitable enterprises.
 
 
There are lots of kits of vehicles from famous TV shows produced from the ‘60s to the ‘80s, so it really comes as no surprise that Monogram also decided to produce a kit from the much-hyped “New Monkees” TV show that aired in 1987.  Sadly, Monogram’s bet didn’t pay off, and the New Monkees Mustang GT Convertible doesn’t carry the same cultural weight as the original Monkeemobile, Knight Rider’s KITT or even Magnum PI’s Ferrari 308.
 
However, they did indeed kit the New Monkees Mustang, and I came across one last year at an antiques store. It was so weird, such a piece of ‘80s kitsch, that I had to get it. Now you can check out what you might have missed back in the day at the link below!

A friend of mine gave me the Monogram Mustang Lowrider kit, which is basically the same kit as the New Monkees Mustang, just with a few extra parts.  He had acquired the kit as part of a collection from someone who was getting out of the hobby.  He wasn't into Mustangs and so he gave me the kit just to get rid of it.  He has given me several Mustang kits before he had past away in October 2019.

I'm looking for a Beverly Hillbill'y model T. I like the Monkeys custom GTO.  I read somewhere that the two most popular models were the Dukes of Hazard Charger and the Kit Trans Am. I could not resist the Daisy Mae Jeep and the Sheriff's car. Wasn't there an A Team van?
