That is a spectacular bash-job! I really like it :D

I wish this was readily available on the market.

Thank you very much !

 I doubt we will ever see a '60 available .  The tooling exists for the '59 and it's a good seller so it will continue to be reissued .

The tooling for the '59 is AMT and the parts to build this one are Revell..  just like they took the '56 Chevy and spawned off a Nomad, I wouldn't be surprised to see a '60 Elkie.  Just like we're hoping for a '57 Ranchero.

I'm not sure what you are saying . . . SMP produced a promo style '60 El Camino and later AMT released the '59 El Camino which has been reissued several times .  The SMP tooling is probably long gone and AMT isn't about to modify the tooling for the '59 since it is such a good seller .  Likewise it's not very likely that Revell would modify or make all new tooling for a '60 as there isn't a big enough demand for it ,  the '57 Ranchero is a much more sensible choice .

 

As for my build ,  it is built using parts from both the '59 El Camino and the Revell '60 Impala .

Anyway ,  thanks for looking . . . I hope you liked it !
