It's going to be cool when these Chevelles start getting built. I can't wait to see what everyone does with it!


Once we get the '74 Chevelle, this is what I'll be doing B) ! http://tapahtumakuvi...evelle Stocker/

I don't know how there are always cars in my family, where are no scale models except the '60 Impala. :lol:

Oh and did I say that glad to hear the progress with the '73 Chevelle! Going to be another cool one when available in Resin.

I do intend on doing the Laguna next. Bench seats or buckets and console? Opinions?


Both? I like bench and bucket options, depending on what I want to build.

That is most likely the 1974 Chevelle by AMT (or the Model King issue) converted to street form.

Oooooh I like this!

It's real. I'm going to modify one of the resin Chevelles into a Laguna. The Laguna will get the bucket seat/console/round gauges interior. The Chevelle will have bench seat/linear speedometer interior.

Couple questions:
1) What will you guys be using for the chassis?
2) Since this is a GM "colonnade car", is there any chance of doing a '77 442?
