Franklin Mint / 1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible / Limited Edition 1,000 / 1:24th Scale
This latest FM repaint was promoted as "Larkspur Blue", a very pale, powder blue and in the pre-release photos it looked close to that color so we went with it. However, our shipment arrived this week and in real life it is actually closer to "Tropical Turquoise". Although real '57 Chevy restorers have already pointed out that the color isn'tright for Turq either, but it's closer than blue. Since the interior is so far off from being correct for the blue edition but is close enough to the Turq version( if you can ignore the white dash..please!), I don't see how anyone can call this Larkspur Blue so we're renaming it Trop Turq. GM Licensing really needs to take a look at what FM has been doing lately. These inaccurate replicas devalue the real classic cars and GM-Chevrolet heritage.
