The reason I asked all those questions
 
I was building a model of a 1959 thunderbird but the kit was a 58 so I had to change the rear suspension to leaf springs and had no pictures to go by. This is what I came up with.

Awesome!!! Can I ask where you found the 58 kit? I have a 58 and would love to make one to put in our back window.

I got lucky and found the kit at my local hobby shop. I have been looking a long time for this kit. you might try e-bay.

Tex perhaps you could send Dennis the company info off the box and he can send them an email to see if he can order?

Its a monogram kit which I don't think is available from them right now. I'm not even sure if Monogram is still in business.

The reason I asked all those questions

Madefuel cells out of chicklets fuel lines from telephone wire many custom parts available bare metal foil model care garage for most available kits when no money to work on 63 gives me somethig to do other than knaw on furniture.
