Great looking paint finish and build. You did a nice job, you don't see many of the 69 kits around anymore...

Thanks guys. This one & my 69 Buick Wildcat are about the first builds that I actually saved from destruction derby. By 69 I was starting to mature & decided I wanted to hold on to the cars I was building. I went through MANY earlier kits...building & crashing, such as my 67 & 68 Cougars, original 65 Impala SS, 64 Impala with working lights & so many more that it makes me ill to think about it. Now I'm paying good money to try & get these oldies back. If I'd only known...but hey I was young

Nice resto, I'm surprised that MPC didn't mold the vinyl top on it, I mean it's a must with an Impala Htop coupe no???
