I used the AMT 68 Z-28 kit and added the quarter windows:
I used Cragar big 'n littles like the 1:1 car had, as well as the generic orange paint job (I used Duplicolor Chevy Engine Orange.)
Here's the interior tub:
I removed the console from the kit since mine was originally a bench seat, column shift car. Then I added the Hurst shifter, gauges, tach on the column and window/door handles.
I've tried to come as close as I could to the prototype's engine compartment with a smallblock Chevy motor, headers and a single 4-barrel. I scratchbuilt a Ford solenoid on the firewall and added various lines and wires from here and there. It also has an electric fan like the 1:1 car had with a few photo-etched details.
It needs the final details, but it's finally taking shape. I'll be building another 67, this one will be an RS/SS that I sold last year. I sure miss those Camaros.

I'll be doing a replica of the yellow RS/SS soon. I've got the photo-etched stuff to do the RS grille and at leastI won't have to take the console outta that one. I've also got a pair of Trumpeter 63 Nova kits to build replicas of the two that I owned. And some Monte Carlo SSes and an El Camino SS and so on.
I guess I have my projects lined up for the foreseeable future...not to mention the Rat Fink Reunion this weekend and the 1:1 projects. I'm sure not bored in my retirement. :wink:
