This is a mostly box stock build of the AMT Dave Strickler 62 Bel Air kit. I added plumbing, carb linkage and wiring to the engine compartment and used the Proffitt Slixx decals.

The paint is DupliColor Victory Red on the body and MM Italian Red on the interior. The decals on the seats are home made. I also added some brake backing plates to the wheels and some PE wire seperators.

This turned out very nice! I like the paintjob on it, and decals look good. Engine detailing is great too. These X-Frame Chevrolets are always nice to see, especially Stockers and Super Stockers. Thanks for sharing this build.

Thanks guys, compared to a lot of the builds on here it's nothing spactacular but I put a lot of effort in to this one. The 62 Chevy is one my favorite big bodied cars.

My dad races a 63 Biscayne and I love these old Chevy's. I saw a restored version of this car run a pass at a Nostalgia Drags event a couple of years ago.

Super Nice !
I'm always pleased when I see a vintage 1/4 Miler whose sponsors were dealerships which were close to my hometown ( Cone Chevrolet [Fullerton] , Don Steves Chevrolet [La Habra], Ricker Motors AMC [Whittier] , Bill Kraft AMC [Norwalk] , etc. ) , and your gorgeous build exemplifies this :D
