The new tool 57 is a good kit, but pie shaped. I've figured out how to narrow the back half of the body and section the rear bumper so all is good. The opening trunk really helps on this. Compare it to a new Revell 57 and you'll see what I'm talking about. Great donor kit for other mid 50's GM builds too.
The old 8 cylinder A/C compressor wouldn't live with the higher RPM's the Fuelie engine would turn. Also the engine lacked the low RPM torque to idle with the load of the A/C on. Driveability nightmare.
