Oh man, did Revell to a number on this kit. WOW!! You build a stock '57 Ford Del Rio or build a gasser with the parts contained in the kit. This appears to be a follow up kit to '57 Ford Del Rio kit that builds stock or as a police vehicle.

The engine comes with the parts for a single or dual quad intake manifold, fender well headers and 3 different air filters. All the engine parts fit together very well.

Revell did an interior platform with separate side panels and seats that feature wonderful engraving. I departed from the kit and installed 4 bucket seats and a console.

The Ford long roof body Revell made is magnificent! Door handles, rear lift gate, hood ornament, mirror, and windshield wipers are all separate parts. I choose to leave some of those pieces off in my desire to make build a mild custom car. I also modified side trim by removing the top portion. I used HOK planet green paint to finish off the kit.

Frame rails are separate from the chassis and makes for easily painting the rails a different color/shade from the chassis pan. I really like it when the manufacturers produce these as separate parts. All the pieces were nicely engraved with little to no flash throughout the kit.

The instruction sheet is a multi-page affair that lists all the parts by number. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow.

Revell needs to be commended for producing this fantastic model kit and a big thank you to the IPMS/USA reviewer corps for allowing me to review this kit.
