Just your everyday 2 door post grocery getter, until you lift the hood.  427, 4 speed, 12-bolt.  The Revell COPO kit, very nice kit, goes together real well.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.  I wanted a plain jane color, this is gloss khaki Rustoleum.  I didn't care for it much at first either but it kind of grows on you.

That color is so ugly.  I like it.  Cool model.

 

My friend in High School had a "sleeper" Nova and kept the 307 emblem on it - that "427" let's everyone know "Yes, I am ugly, but I am fast".

I like it.  I had a blue one after High School when I got my first real job. Nice little package on that one.

Yeah, I'm going to black out the 427.  I wish there was a 250 decal!

Great build! The color suits it. It looks like a "Grandpa" car that would lure you into a stoplight drag race, then kick your butt! Nice work!
