It looks like it is possible to fit the the hard top from the old AMT 62 Corvette kit to the new Revell 62. See the photo... some sanding and adjusting will be required.
I plan on building this car as a "big tank" and "big brake" car with the hard top...... this is a rare vehicle in the 1:1 world..... I will also source some dog dish hub caps as well. The resin aftermarket has the needed finned brake drums and the elephant ears will be scratch built.
Note that cars altered for race purposes had the tank fill relocated to the middle of the rear window in a plexiglass box.... the big tank car pictured here is how they were delivered in stock trim.... My current plan is to use the wheels tires and hub caps from the Revell Black Widow.... the hub caps are not correct but until I source a correct set this is the direction I will take. Also, note the significant overlap of the quarter panel window over the rear door seam.
See the photos.....more as I make progress.....
