In discussing this car with Mr. Predicta AKA Mark Gustavson. It was concluded that to build an accurate 1/24 model the kit should only be used as a reference and start with a Monogram '56 t-bird and a '59 Buick. I did try using the kit and wanted to backdate it but what a waste. I'll see about posting a link to my PB, both the 1/24th project is there along with start of a 1/16th predicta. The frustrating thing is that Monogram bought the Predicta from Starbird. He made modifications to it for Monogram and they still fudged the model.
