Actually, it was a hardtop. However, a bit modified. Allow me to explain.
To the credit of Supercar Collectibles, they wanted to replicate the AWB Mopars as accurately as they could. The actual 1:1 car were hardtops and had acid dipped bodies. The chemical milling caused the bodies to be paper thin and to give the vehicle more structural strength the builder Amblewagon attached narrow window frames to the doors. So, the model car being a hardtop and accurate to the 1:1 AWB funny cars, had the door frames as well.

Outstanding set. I'm a GM-guy; but, I'd love to see a '65 Satellite fastback hardtop in 1:24 or 1:18 (EOM) by Billy Collins #28907.4
You're loosing me Billy. That first car is the '65 Plymouth hardtop in 1/18. (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #28907.4.1
Isn't it technically a Belvedere? And the hardtop has no post / window-door frame. (EOM) by Billy Collins #28907.4.1.1

(PIC) Billy, the ONLY 1/18 AWB '65 Satellite I'm aware of is Lee Smith's. Which is a knock out! by Christopher Moroni #28907.
