I'm sure you've heard it before BUT, "you gotta be kidding me!!!!" The detail--especially on the dash--is incredible. Great talent.

The fuel lines on this particular engine actually came in the kit !!! The engine is the 421 Pontiac from the AMT '62 Pontiac kit.

Beautiful Lyle. I admire the work of everyone who has posted here. I don't have too much time to build lately, but here is a jalopy I did some time back with a photo of the original car that inspired me. Karl

Why? Revell is coming out with the new '57 Ford 300 in a few months.

That's cool.....Now I don't have to figure out shortening the trunk and chassis. This was my inspiration. Back to the drawing board. Thanks Lyle

Ran across this one at a local hobby/sports card shop on Saturday. The owner had just picked it up at a yard sale that morning and already had dollar signs in his eyes after looking at them on ebay. He actually had the contents of two boxes (one nice, one really beat) and I did a quick inventory of the contents. Turns out he had about 99% of a whole kit, plus a ton of extra parts. The worst part that was missing was half of the engine block. ON a kit of an engine, that's kind of a biggie!

It's not mine. As I said, the owner of a local hobby/sports card shop had it. He hadn't come up with a price because I think he was going to list it on ebay. The finished auction he brought up for a similar one (complete, but partially built) had a selling price of $70, if I remember correctly.

Lyle, Does that new 57 Ford 300 include a paxton supercharger? It looks like it does.

Supercharger is shown on the sprue test shots. Please note that the kit is of the low-priced Custom not the Custom 300 with fancier interior and side trim.
