This is the twin to my coronet. T IMAG0184_zpsb34b730c.jpg he body is a johan body, the interior is a mix of aftermarket resin and kit pieces. The hood is a aftermarket resin piece. The chassis, the engine and engine compartment are amt. The paint is testors emerald green. The decals are a assortment of aftermarket ones. I found that with a little trimming and by modifying the johan kit glass the amt interior and chassis fit like it was IMAG0184_zpsb34b730c.jpg made for the johan body. The chrome was typical for johan of that vintage, with a little research i found the modelhaus 69 roadrunner pieces are repops of the johan chrome. So i replaced the grill and bumpers with those pieces. All in all was a fun project.

Outstanding!

 I love the Johan body and AMT chassis combo. Used the same parts to make my Project Six Pack Super Stocker.

 Great work!
