From time to time my a certain project idea dominstes my thoughts for a while, then fades away before the work starts mostly due to excessive complexity and/or lack of refrence materials. One of these ideas has been revived by an ongoing review of Revell new 1962 Corvette kit. I have a pile of AMT 1962 Corvettes in my stash, an old kit that never has been praised by anyone, and I was always wondering if it suffice to cut the back of that AMT and glue it to 1959 AMT (which is actually an 1960 car) and replace the grill by the 1962 grill to get an 1961.... I know the interior needs modification and probably an after market engine, but is that is all for the body?

 

Thanks in advance for the feedback.

If you're after a '61, seems to me modifying the Revell '62 kit would do just fine with a lot less hassle.

The fender 'coves' are different from 61 to 62  too.

Ah,just buy an original MIB 61 Vette from the bay...
