Wow, that came out very beautiful, Bruce! Maybe one of the bests I've seen from your bench, even if your all other builds are very nice too. I like the paint and overall clean-look on this one. It's actually much better looking as LeMans than GTO. Congratulations on very nice model, Bruce.

Very cool! What all did you have to do to convert it to a LeMans?  I wanted to do this with the '72 GTO kit, but there is way too much work involved in the front end for me! Perhaps the '68 is easier?

First thing was to remove the nose and add grills with headlights. These I got from a 66 Chevelle. Used the bench seat from a 68 Roadrunner. Added a single 4bbl with air cleaner. Removed the twin scoops and flatten the hood. I forgot the side wings for the windows..



Thank you all for your kind comments and nice words...................
