    I have put one under an AMT 55 sedan with little problems so it can be done. I suggest cutting the floors out of the AMT interior tub.

    I used a dial caliper, a calculator and a 1:1 57 Chevy. The new AMT body is too wide in the rear.

    The worse thing I found wrong with the newer body is that it is pie shaped, it's too wide in the rear. The body is easily fixed because of the opening trunk, except for the roof which is then too wide for the corrected body. The BEST 57 Chevy hardtop would be the Revell 1/25 snap kit body and interior on one of the newer Revell 57 Chevy chassis and engine. That snapper has the BEST 57 Chevy 2 door hardtop body you can buy.

    It's like any other kit, if it sells well it will probably inspire additional kits in the same vane.

    The fenders need to be extended and sloped more, lots of changes to make on the quarters. I've got one that I'm "someday" converting into a 91 Sunbird.

    OOPS! I just saw the years you wanted in your original post, I thought you were looking for the newer body. The years you are looking for were face lifted earlier cars so that hatchback kit has the right doors and windshield, it's basically correct between the center of the wheel openings.

    It seems that GM and Toyota did some badge engineering, if you can find one of these it may work for you. Otherwise one of the resin guys is doing a pro stock body that might be able to be taken back to stock.

    Looks good to me! I normally don't build cars newer than the early 70's but I'm a Hurst Olds fan so I may have to pick one up. How did it go together?

    Model car world cast a resin 1/25 57 Nomad based on the new Revell 57 Belair sedan kit. This is your best option for a 57.

    Hard to believe these haven't been posted yet.

    Anyone know how stock the Nascar 72 Ford Torino body is?

    A 74 GTO is on my long list, the body and trim don't worry me but the decals, thats my worry.

    How? It's never been kitted.
  14. Craig Irwin added a post in a topic revell 4Q2016 Release Annoucement   

    I'd like that too, but I can hear the cries if "another 57 Chevy, @#$%^&* !!!" from the anti 32 Ford, Tri Five Chevy and Camaro bunch. Meanwhile we have no 56 Bel Airs, 57 210's, non Nomad wagons, sedan deliverys, good 55 or 57 Nomads, 56 Convertibles  and on and on......

    Great news, first announcements that have interested me in a while. Bronco is a must for at least 2, and I'm out of Black Widow parts kits. (Great FI 283 and chassis) The Pro-Street Berretta, how far off from a pro stock car was it?
