If it has ignition wire and photoetch it's most likely a reissue of their 57 from the late ninties. It was the first of their new style kits with seperate frame and floor pan and such. It's a good build but I seem to remember some slight controversy over the shape of the body. It looks great to me.

It is a reissue of AMT's "Pro Shop" '57. No idea if the wiring and p/e parts were included with the Pro Shop release or not, though.

Here's the kit on Round2's 'site:

i was hoping they'd get around to reissuing that version. i thought the tincan was the old PepperShaker kit. glad i'm wrong, because no way would i pay that much for the current de-contented version they've been selling.

Its the pro shop kit & parts, in a new tin. Nice kit but dont pay daft prices unless your a collector.

Shame they didnt put the pepper shaker kit in a tin . . . . . :)
