Actually, the VIN does identify V8 cars. The number will start with a "V" on V8 cars.
Here's the Factory ID guide showing how the read the VIN (originally calles Serial Number)

Also, weren't the V emblems deleted on the "sixes"?
I know that on the "Fuelies" they were plated in the gold color.

85-4057 1/24 '53 Corvette Roadster


Anyone know how this compares with the AMT '53 Corvette (other than 1/25 vs 1/24)? I'm building the AMT kit now and it is a nice kit, but I have ideas for another '53 Corvette. Since they are re-issuing the kit and the AMT is fairly easy to find on Ebay I have options.

What's up with that Willys? That's not a pretty box.

The Rat Roaster should be a very interesting kit - I will be looking forward to seeing what the parts look like.

Hope they add the Stock parts from the El Camino to the 66 Malibu wagon

this time since they put the hot-rod parts from it in the Recent 2n1 El Camino!!

 

I have the original's of both. El Camino is Stock Only

Wagon needs the hood, tires & hubcaps from El Camino to be stock!!

I honestly don't understand Revell wasting time on the SSR kit. They didn't sell well in the real world and I have yet to hear of anyone say they wanted another model of it. I've also never seen one being displayed at any model shows. Maybe it's just me. I think they should have put their time into something else.

I would assume it's just a straight reissue, so it's a minimal investment..
