As a wagon guy my heart skipped when I saw your build !  Beautiful 2 door wagon and the camper is pretty awesome too !

You've outdone yourself this time ,  great job . :D

 

. . .  too bad GM stopped making the 2 - door Chevelle wagon in '65 .  The '66 - '67 is a much prettier body style !

They sure stack the snow high in the Great White North!

 

Those are both drop dead cool and beautiful!

Thank you everyone, I really appreciate your comments.

Came out GREAT, Nick! What color is that?

It is 1966 Chevrolet Artesian Turquoise, My friend works at a bodyshop and owed me a favor, in the summer I saw a 1:1 Chevelle in the color and fell in love!

 

Well done Nick! One question, is the rear high on purpose?

Yes it is, 90% of the time the wagon will be displayed without the trailer, With the trailering package the car would have it would leave the car with a rake.

Well done!  B)

Those are both very very cool Nick. GM should have made a wagon like that.

Thanks, I found a similar family picture and just went with it.

Well done!  B)

Thanks Harry, your teachings have set in well, Lower rad hose, alternator bracket and rearview  mirror :D

 


Those are both very very cool Nick. GM should have made a wagon like that.

I wish they had, I never really realized how much I liked how clean the bodylines flowed for a two-door wagon on the '66-'67 body style.

Wow, that is awesome! Love the work on the wag and the color, the travel trailer is great! Should have popped that one out in resin, as I'm sure tons of us would love to have one of those! Looks right on too!

Very nice Nick. Fun combo. It's a shame Chevy never offered a '66 Chevelle 2-door wagon. Your's looks great. And growing up in the 60's, I love the Schwinn Sting Ray. I assume that came from the old MPC/AMT Model A woodie/pickup kit? The camping trailer also has the right looks for the mid-60's. Time to "See the America First".
