I could be wrong . This is the only information I've been able to round up . The articles I've read over the decades place the production at 50 . Chevrolet Division halted this . It was not up to their Standards . Gee , if only they stuck to their guns in the 1:1 World . One of the Problems , IIRC , was the wheels / tires were slightly worked over Flivver (from the AMT Model T kit of 1959 or 1960 ?) . Totally were incorrect as the Chevrolet used a much larger diameter size . For instance 40" vs the 30" on Lizzies .
Please , who else and how many were produced . A cousin of mine was a Salesman for a Local Chevrolet Dealership in the '50's - '80's . When these were new , I asked to have him get me one . Impossible to do is what he found . These were already OOP .. He collected Promos and kits ; "for his son" .
My search since 1984 has included many people selling OPP kits / build ups . I've never saw one for sale at all the Toledo Shows I've attended . Except for Mike's Resin . I could and did buy the '52 Stude Pace Car from Mike . The Chevrolet was more money I did not have then . The next year when I did have the funds .. I never saw one listed on either Amazon nor E Bay . Yes , I did have as a search for quite a few years when I was able to spend monies on such sources . I had one of those kits in my hands early in the sales year during the 1962 MY . I had the money in my pocket . I asked my father to buy it with my Cash in my Hand .. No .. he was angry his friend's Chevrolet had broken down . We went to buy a replacement part . His efforts netted a No ..
So , I still want one . Kevin and I have a plan , I am the third one to get it fresh off the Rubber . I have been sitting on the Funds for quite awhile . Thanx ..
