Just finished this one. I actually painted it in 1975...sooo, its one of those looong builds. By AMT, and it ended up a curbside cause the stock hood wouldnt close with the triple carb option. Oh well...

Sweet looking Vette.  I think I've got a Monogram kit of this car.  Makes me want to finally pull it out but I've already got enough work going on.

Nice Vette! It's my favorite. Too bad they didn't keep the split window. It was classy looking, in my opinion. Good work. I'm glad it finally got finished!

Thanks for looking and for the comments. The 63 split window has been my favorite vette since I first saw it in the Chevy dealer showroom. It was a red car with red interior, and i used to stop there after school and just stand and look at it and imagine I could drive it.

Nice job, The '63 was always one of my favorites. I kick myself when I see one and remember my friend wanted to sell me his silver one back in '68 and I didn't take him up on it. Ouch! I just kicked myself again.
