I had to sacrifice a distributor, an antenna, several coats of paint, and extra time to the gods to build her, but she came out rather nice I think. Intake manifold, dual carbs, and dual air cleaner setup from an AMT '57 Chrysler 300c, but the parts fit perfectly on the engine block. I also had photoetch I was going to add to it, but research showed that very little badging was put on the car to keep her and her 24 "sisters" simple for the camera.

Let me know what all of you think!

Allen, that's a nice looking car...... but it's a '58 Plymouth, not a '57.

Yeah, I know... I was just calling it that like SK did in the book. No worries.

And thanks everyone!

EDIT: Decided to change it anyway. It DOES make it correct! LOL!

Looks great!

I'd keep it away from any '67 Camaros you might have in your collection, though...

Love this car, gotta build one myself one day...... Really nice job, engine looks all the better for the 300c parts.

Was it a 57 or 58, I remember in the film, George LeBay states ` my a$$hole brother bought her, September 57, that's when you got your new model...` (or something like that ! ) So its a 58 bought in 57 ??? :huh:

Nice job anyways ......... Lowlife ! !

In real life it was a '58, but in the movie they called it a '57. Of course SK wrote that it was a special order custom model ordered in that color, otherwise it would have been Buckskin Beige.

Thanks all!

That has turned out a very nicely detailed build, great interior and undercarriage, engine looks very well done too mate.
