Malco Super Vett
Chris Lang's Grand Champion Show Car!

  • Original year: 1972
  • Company: MPC
  • Scale: 1/25
  • Designer: Chris Lang

Grand Champion of the ISCA custom car show circuit!! The nation's top rod in a super MPC kit! MPC wouldn't bring you the nation's top rod without the details and features that make it great. You'll be able to flip up the hinged front end to display the injected engine. Plus you can duplicate the wild markings of the Super Vett thanks to a super sized decal sheet. It's all there, the ISCA Grand Champion, as only MPC would bring it to you. It's not just another pretty face. The Super Vette is an established and respected strip performer.

Dave's comments:

OK, first note that MPC got the acronym wrong on the kit: They said "ISCA" and it's really "ICAS". Geeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The International Championship Auto Show circuit (ICAS) used a "point system" for judging cars in customized auto shows around the country. In Bob Laravee's book: "Showtime--The Story of the International Championship Auto Shows and the hot rod custom car world", he relates that Chris Lang won the ICAS championship in 1971 with this 1958 customized Corvette. Chris received both a California vacation and a 1971 Plymouth Roadrunner to go with his trophies.

This 1972 kit was reissued in 1974. If you're a purist, don't buy the '74 reissue. MPC totally redid the decal sheet and it's not even close to the authentic graphics. Click on the image below to see a cool pic of this champion show rod on display in 1971.
