Tom C has the fastbacks cast and shipped. I saw photos on another site.

Bandit Resins offers a curbside '50 Pontiac coupe(?), too, but it could probably be modified to work with the new '50 Olds.
The Olds has a published 119-1/2" wheelbase; the Pontiac is published at 120".
I'd say that works pretty well. Once the wheels are on, the only way you could tell the wheelbase is half an inch different in 1/25 will require a digital micrometer, and it had better have plenty of decimal places. Add a Kitchen Table Pontiac straight eight, and you're road-ready. The only possibly complex item might be cobbling up the exhaust system, which could be done with solder or aluminum tubing.
In 1/25: 120"=4.6875"; 119-1/2"=4.66796875"
Like I said, no big deal.
