A picture from the ad...can't imagine why they'd mold using a crappy color like that green. But very complete. Bumpers, glass, grill,...everything needed for a slotcar build.

Nice catch! I'll be seeing Robert Mitchum and Keely Smith in Thunder Road all day now....those 1/32 '57s are hard to find.

Have a couple myself that combined make a complete car. It's planned for a new mold for the Showdown Series.

Nice choice. They do make a great looking race car.
