Yesterday, i tried to swap ZL1 part with the converible parts just for fun!! 

I does fit perfectly, all the parts that differs from SS to ZL1 are apart from the body, even the rocker panels!!

 

So i ended up with two complete bodies, a ZL1 convertible, and an SS hardtop without wasting a single part from the bodies!!! 

 

I like it!!

Very good looking kits, even if it's curbside!

 

And i think the tires are better than Revell. 

 

Thanks for this information!

That is a great GS.

AMT needs to recognize it has been more popular than the standard car since it was reintroduced.

A 427 car would also be a possibility

 

Thanks!!!....The 427 and GS convertible cars would be easy to do as models as they are essentially the same body style.....with a different engine...  both run  the Z16 suspension....  hence the popularity of the Grand Sport....  you can get a GS for about $30 - $40K less than the 427 car and it is still a 4 second 0 to 60 car .......   the only real difference is the 378CUI - 436HP engine in the GS vs. the 427CUI  motor at 505 HP.....  both are rockets!!!!

I agree.... I wish they would do a GS body..... Coupe and Roadster.....

 

Then I could build my 1:1 car.....  It is one of several of my 1:1 cars that I have not been able to build.... hope they do it soon....

 

But with the 2014's in the pipe-ine already I really doubt it will happen.....we will no doubt see a "Show-room" replica of the 2014 by mid-summer..... 

 

One of four of my "real ones"........

I agree with both of you, i once consider swapping the rear portion of a ZR-1 to my convertible to build something like this, but i will wait a bit till AMT release a GS body!!

I'm sure they will!!
