Nice clean gasser. Cool art work on the trunk.

Thanks. It's a decal from the Atlantis 57. I painted over their red car with my body color.

Very nice 57. I like the color and the theme. Is this the Atlantis body? Do the doors open? Is the blower belt separate or is the while lettering on it a decal?

Boy, that 55 turned out nice.  That color is striking and those big ole meats on the back look killer.

Thanks. No, the Atlantis kit is a little rough. I was seeing more things that needed work than I wanted to deal with.  It  was not the best 57 kit when it was new.  Mine is the Black Widow 150 with the straight axle from the Atlantis kit. It's a solid body. The motor is the from the AMT 37 Chevy. Standard model car blower drive, one piece belt and pulleys with a decal on the belt.

The shackles on the rear and the trunk decal, that I painted over, are the only other things from the Atlantis box.
