I was wondering how many years of the Impala and or Bel-Air kits were made. 

 

I have in my stash so far:

58 Impala

59 Impala Conv

60 Impala

61 Impala conv

61 impala

62 Bel-Air

63 Impala conv

63 Impala

64 Impala

65 Impala

67 Impala

68 Impala-Promo

70 Impala

70 Impala conv-Promo

94 Impala

 

I know there is 75 Caprice kit also which(which I do have) at that time took the Impala's place.

'62 and '66 Impalas have been covered recently by Revell, and AMT did a newer-tool '62 Impala convertible 'round '98 or so.

 

Pretty sure AMT and MPC had annuals for the '69 as well - imagine those will be a bit spendy.

I had posted this earlier, but the thread kept moving around..

 


MPC did the '68 through '72 Impala hts (and '68-70 convertibles, as well as a '71 promo convertible), and the '73 through '76 Caprice hts.  The '76 has been reissued under AMT and MPC branding.

AMT did ht and convertible annuals from '58 thru '67, and a modern tooling '67 ht,  a non-stock '68 ht, and stock '69 and '70 hts (the '70 has been reissued many times).  AMT also did a promo-only '61 Impala 4dr ht.

AMT did a modern tooling '62 Impala convertible and Bel Air ht also.

Lindberg did the '61 ht and convertible.

Revell has done the '58 ht, '59 ht & conv, '60 ht, '62-64 ht, '65 ht & conv, and '66 ht.  Revell also did the '91 Caprice (Police/Taxi kit), '94 Impala SS, and an '00-05 Impala police car snap kit.

I think I have every 1:25th Impala/Caprice kit in my stash, except for the '58 annuals (I have the later AMT '58 ht w/ opening doors and the Revell '58).
