Look it’s 1:50 size, what an odd size, I know!! But look at those colors, it just reeks of the ‘70's doesn’t it?

Here are all the other models they made. Personally I think they made the ‘57 Chevy look the worst, but hey I didn’t have it in my collection yet and it wasn’t too much money, so now it’s MINE!!!!

As you can clearly see no detail was left out LMAO!!!! Let’s be honest this thing is a bit crude.

Yes that is correct, do not let your eyes deceive you, that is a pin hole in the casting right underneath the belt line on the passenger lower rear fender.

No idea what is hanging off the rear bumper, I think it’s just bumper that wasn’t trimmed.

Plans for this baby is of course the same as all the others, paint it red with a white roof, give it some white walls, and chrome everything that should be. But it’s at the back of the line, so it will be a few years, I’m sure...
