I love how this turned out. Did Revell design this kit to have poseable steering or did you modify it?

No, but it was easy to modify. I dipped the ends of the a arms and spindles in warm water and twisted them around until it looked about right.

Thats what they call a "day 2" car nowadays! Very neat combination of period speed equipment, a period perfect rubber rake too ! Had a chance to buy one like it back in the day, low mile strippo 396/375 4 spd gold with black vinyl roof. $2,800 from a returning Vet. I THOUGHT IT WAS TOO MUCH MONEY ! ( *%#!!@*&!@! )

Looks great. The rear wheels look just like the cars guys built back in high school.
