    This will show you how crazy I am to get the right look. The front half of the frame is AMT's 67 impala Street machine. the rear half is Amt's 57 Chevy Bel Air Street Machine( I love this kit, lots of good parts}. Other part I used were off the Revell Corvette C5-R for the a arms and other cool looking stuff that just fit. I added plastic tubing to the frame to make it look stronger, and scratch built a working rack and pinion steering. the inspiration for this car was the Street Rodder road tour Impala.

    Yes, the wheels and tires are from the Tamiya F50. I contacted the Tamiya America parts ordering # and told them what I needed, and ordered 3 sets of them, and a couple of sets of wheels. it cost me a lot less then the kits are going for.

    Well from the pics I can see I'm getting old & shaky, I wish I could get better at applying bare metal foil. It is what it is, fun to buld with all the mods I did.

    I think it will sit right once the chassie is glued to the pan, and the bumpers are on it.

    the kit number is 8319, its the amt/ertl 57 street machine version. Alot of people didnt like the kit because supposedly it wasnt accurate, but its got alot of detail, and its way fun to build. the wheels are from the revell camaro kit, and the tires are from the tamiya F50
