This build was entered in our club's tri-five chevy build. It started as a Revell Del Ray kit with minor modifications as I attempted to maintain the classic styling ques of the tri-fives. The exterior was dechromed, debadged and the side molding from under the side windows to the horizontal trim was removed. Flipped, gently recessed and painted '55 AMT Nomad bumpers replaced the kit oversized chrome bumpers. Body was finished in Testors Inca Gold and Tamiya Yellow.
'09 Charger seats with the headrests removed replaced the front bench seat. The rear seat was reupholstered to match the buckets using strip styrene and putty. The door panel centers were cut away and filled with sheet styrene and p/e parts used for the details. The shifter and console were from the parts box and the interior was finished in Inca Gold and Testors flat light aircraft gray.
The engine compartment was shaved and a detailed Chevy 5.7 from the 99 Silverado kit stuffed in. The custom radiator was taken from the C5-R LeMans kit and the engine cover from a parts box hood scoop.
The chassis and suspension components were cleaned up and the front was lowered and additional 2" scale inches. The kit exhaust was shortened and fitted to the new engine with the addition of aluminum exhaust tips. The tires and wheels are from a Revell Tuner kit.
Thanks for looking...
