"Revell hit it out of the park"
I love that this kit because it is so well done. It provides options for both hi boy and channeled builds with dedicated frames, suspension pieces, interior pieces, and even version specific radiator hoses. The kit features excellent big and little dirt track tires and 2 excellent sets of wheels. There are also sweet finned Buick brake drums and lake style headers. In addition, the instructions are excellent. The decals are nice, however, those from my kit had white shadows resulting from sub par registration. The parts are nicely molded; the extras will be coveted additions to your parts box. Care should be taken when removing parts from the sprues as some of them are quite delicate. I clip then off using small nippers or saw them off using a razor saw. My kit came with a broken tie rod and a broken radius rod. To ease installation of the headlights, which are difficult to handle, first install the lens. After the glue has set my tip is to apply a small piece of tape to the lens to use as a handle. This is not a quick build, nor is it for the novice builder. Despite the broken parts and decal issue, I highly recommend this kit.

"It's Back!...But Different"
Tim W (North County San Diego)
Back by popular demand! This kit now contains the Small Block Chevy engine with the option of 3-2 barrel carburetors or a blower with 2-4 barrels as well as the chrome Halibrand style wheels from the '30 Ford 5 Window Coupe. It no longer includes the Nail Head Buick engine, which I sorely miss. It may be built as a Highboy or with the Z'ed frame and channeled body. With the included body mounting style, induction and wheel options, many versions of this Hot Rod can be completed. The engine alone is enough reason for me to buy multiple copies for kit-bashing in the future.

"Good build with many extras"
GRUBS66 (Illinois)
Good detail engines, 2 complete with 3 different intake options. High boy or channeled body's, chassis and suspension. Choice of wheels and tires. Leaves you with extra parts for the collection box. Some parts are thin take extra care cutting of the spruce/tree. Have fun and let's see the finished product.

"Probably Very Enjoyable"
I was fairly impressed with the fit of all the pieces. HOWEVER, the instructions show the dash board being assembled AFTER the body has been glued to the chassis. DON'T! The dash board will not slide in from the top as it shows due to the way it is shaped. I could only wedge one end into the slot, then force the dash forward as far as I could, which of course marred the paint of the interior panels and required touch up. There was no way to get it completely into place, so a top view is ugly because you cans see the gap between dash and body. I recommend trying to put the dash to body FIRST, then body to chassis. There are two steering columns, depending on whether you build the channeled version (178) or the highboy (74). I chose the channeled version. I should have paid more attention to the drawing! I would have realized that the curve at the end of the column was a warp. The drawings showed it straight! Digging the column loose without destroying the already-installed engine was a challenge. I then used the other straight column intended for the highboy. I couldn't see any difference between the two. Well, the problem became apparent when it came time to install the steering wheel. The seat for the channeled version was a little deeper than the highboy seats. Consequently the larger steering wheel for the channeled version struck the seat and would not align with the column. There must have been a difference in angle between the two columns. The #74 column requires use of the #34 steering wheel. Last but not least, the windshield frame was warped during manufacturing. By the time I got through with the glue and clothes pin to force compliance, the glass was smudged with glue! If someone gets a kit with no warping, this will probably be an enjoyable build as long as they remember the dash.
