Without a series of production delays, this mainstay of antique car collectors and the veteran of the silver screen might never have existed. Facing low sales from previous years, the chief engineer at Chevrolet dictated a series of expensive changes to the 1957 Bel Air. The new dashboard, relocation of air ducts to the headlight area, low-riding fourteen inch wheels, and resulting wide stance gave this vehicle its beloved silhouette. The changes were far more than a simple face lift - some mechanical changes happened out of sight and launched it onto the racing circuit.
As late as the 1970's, the '57 Bel Air continued to easily outpace newer competitors in the lower divisions of NASCAR. Coming from AMT, this 1/25 scale car kit captures all of these changes in a beautiful replica. While not the most detail-laden kit, its easy assembly makes it accessible for modelers of all skill-levels. The color-hungry hobbyist can choose nearly any color to set off this plastic kit’s charming exterior and classic white accents. Any lover of the flare in the 1957 Bel Air needs to add this scale model car to their cart!
