When's Round2 going to put out one of these?
Yes, they did get burned putting out the Styline kit.
These were beginner kits for kids put out in the 60's.
The cincher is to mold the kit in color, can be built without painting.
These kits had hood molded in and metal axles.
Note: you can fake them and just build kit without engine and
just enough suspension parts to hold wheels up.

This is on the way according to Autoworld website,
It should have a Y Block engine in it.
You had to wait until '58 to get an FE or MEL big block.
Looks like AMT went with dragstrip version, that's cool!

This is on the Autoworld website.
Looks like the packaging is targeted at the nostalgia market.
The Soap Box Derby version is a hint there.
The mags and the paint color choice and vinyl roof are
the way a lot of them looked then.
Might be an allusion but the rake of the car looks right too,
Banner says Chevrolet's doing something for 'Youth of America', very cool!
Wonder what the Soap Box Derby I kit was, probably a Ford Ranchero, Ford
was still Number One then.
