This is a curbside kit with no engine, molded in hood, and few parts. The provided parts only make a stock version. The chrome parts sprue is the only real sprue in the kit.
All of the details underneath are molded in, including a representation of an engine. The body is bagged separately while the chrome was in another. A third bag contains the floor pan/chassis, interior tub, and dash. The steering wheel was in a smaller bag taped to the tub. A fourth bag contained the tires, red clear parts, and two metal axles. The glass is also bagged separate, and is scratch free.
When cleaning up the body, watch for mold lines at the A pillar where the door panel line is suppose to be. There are also mold lines on the front and rear fender peaks, off the B posts, and on the hood and trunk edges. There are four sink marks on my example: two on the front of the hood, and two on the back of the trunk lid. These are from the pins in the body that mate with the pins on the chassis.
While the simple make up of this kit can make for a quick build, there is also potential for detailing and bashing.

Hmmmm.............I wonder how well a '67 Mustang chassis would fit underneath that, since they were essentially the same car with different bodies? :wink:
