Classic Metal Works 1/24 scale 1963 Chevrolet Impala SS 409 is a diecast kit of some sixty parts with the moulds being by Welly. The detail is pretty good considering this is a bargain kit; for example, the rear panel has the round machined designs on it just like the actual 1:1 car. Also, the 409 engine is replicated reasonably well with chromed exhaust manifolds and a chrome air cleaner. To make the model more visually appealing, thin felt was used on the floor to mimic carpet The door panels' interior trim was highlighted in silver. The seats were painted flat red in contrast to the rest of the interior. The grille was blackwashed and the exhaust pipe tips were silvered. Since the ride height seemed too high, both the car's front and rear were lowered. Thanks for looking....
