Has anybody seem any preview photos of the parts in this kit? I've seen the box art, but I'm hungry to know what is inside.

I almost don't care if it's a great kit or just so-so. I WANT several. There's just no other styrene source for that body, or anything even close enough.

FIRST thing I want to do is graft on a chopped fastback from the old AMT Chebby, kinda like zo... (Steve Stanford design)

I've pre-ordered mine from Tower. I think the odds of this kit being bad are extremely slim.. The gamble I took was also ordering the Dirty Donny Pinball Monster.

Thanks for the Photos. Still no 'Cadillac' script valve covers, but I like it anyway.  I'll need at least two of these.

I'd imagine that's because the engine in the Eldorod is a 427 BBC.

Due out in August of what year? It is a very good looking car, but with no way to build it stock, and no way to change the molds to make a stock version later on, not sure if I'll get in on this one.

I saw the built up of that kit on display at the Milwaukee NNL and will be getting one for sure, as I'm currently workin' on a '64 Caddy convert kit, and I've owned a couple of Caddys in the past.

Next month--August 2017...pretty clear from the posts in this thread.

I'm sure that my local hobby shop is a "preferred shop" and I'll stop by this week I hope, and have them put one aside for me.

The roof from the '51 Chevy Bel Air ht would be a good starting point to do a custom hardtop version..

How soon before the first Resin Hardtop body hits the market?  I'm betting it will be not long after Thanksgiving.

Is this going to be one of the prepainted versions? If you read the description on model roundup makes you wonder,,

The Revell description does't mention anything about it being pre-painted.

Que the Screeching!

According to the Revell listing for the Eldorod, it will have the "Dreaded" Solid Wire axles. Let the shrieking and pearl clutching begin. I'm ready to buy two of these now. I want one that bad.
