Probably not a new tool but rather the Pyro tool. The Pryo history says they loaned tools to Monogram and the artwork has a Pyro style to it. I accuired the Pyro kit , started, in a auction lot last year.

Phil, According to the book about Monogram, this is a new tool.
The artwork however is done by some-one that worked for several companies, which was normal in that time period.
Some of their earlier car kit came from Aurora molds.

Ok, thanks. What does the book say on the 32nd Lola, Cooper Ford, and Ferrari LM? Those are all listed by Palmer and some by Aurora.

Phil,

I'll check tonight when I'm at home.

I'm currently adding kits basing myself on the book and with pictures sent to me from different scources. Monogram (and other companies) make it very difficult to get the correct time line as from time to time they re-used box number, but the box art is different. And without a pic of the box sides it is sometimes very difficult to assign the correct box to a specific year.

Ok Thanks again. I have very few Monogram boxes.

Gunther, Did you learn anything more about the Lola, Ferrari LM or Cooper-Ford? A fourth, The Porsche 904 was also an early Palmer mold , a kit also listed by Monogram in the early 60s.

Phil, According to the book these models are "new tooling". However, what is known is that Monogram had several moldings made by third-parties (in Chicago) as they didn"t had the capacity to produced them their self.

OK, thanks. Too coincidental to be the whole story, however I haven t but a clue to the "true" story either.

Back to the Lincoln, if the 1967 release date is accurate, perhaps a search for the instruction sheet will give insight. If it is a multi-piece body assembly matching the Pyro assembly, I would largely favor that origin as most probable given the 1:32 sports car grouping as a factor too. If one piece body (less doors and decks) then a new tool is creditable.
