I purchased this one from Bandit Resins. The kit seems to be going together pretty easy. This one is designed to be a transkit for the old AMT '58 Impala Hardtop kit.

The paint is MCW Sierra Gold, and the interior will be painted with a coordinating color. The engine will be a surprise. I still have a ways to go on this one, but it is going along pretty good.

Knowing the car as I do (I built the original master for this one, Bandit used, with my OK, one of my castings to create the new resins of it), the only differences between a Biscayne and Delray for 1958 were trim items. The Delray doesn't have the second, lower chrome spear that runs from the front fender back to just behind the doors, and the interior is much different, very, VERY plainly trimmed. Of course, there would be a Delray script instead of "Biscayne".

Art,

You did a wonderful job on the Master. I may do the '59 to go with this one. I already have the color combination picked out for it, as well as theme, and the powertrain combination.

Personally I have always prefered the look of the Delrays over Impala's, because of their side trim and tails!!! Glad to see your Bis-Quick as been released Art, I knew if I held my breath long enough it might :P
