You may note they ARE all ‘57 Chevys and of course they are red, but also they are NOT all the same. (Note I have not detailed or modified them in anyway....YET!!!) Just look at their grilles in the above picture, no two are the same!!! From the design of the mesh to the size and shape of the grille bar and dagmars. That means they made at least 4 different molds of the 1957 Chevy!!!!

Here are the two with white roofs back to back. The one on the left is lower and narrower plus the ratio of green house to body is much more realistic as is the shape of the simulated stainless trim in the rear fin.

In the below view you can see how narrow the white roofed car at the bottom really is!! No idea why they did that, maybe for a particular play-set?

Now here are the two wide hardtops back to back and you can see the are very different as well. Look at how big the wheel openings are on the white roof car. The length of the doors is different along with the height of the green house, shape of the rear bumper, etc, etc. I would say nothing is the same at ALL, if you really stop to look!!

When you really look closely, you can see how differently all 4 of these cars really are and I didn’t even do the rears!!

Note: all pictures were taken by me with my Note8.
