I like where your project is going. If I were doing this project, I would use the Revell '70 Road runner front bench seat, and get some .030 half-round styrene strips for the pleats, and some .080 sheet styrene for the flat surfaces. I would also use the flat styrene, glued on to reshape the head restraints on the Road Runner Bench. The piping can be replicated with sewing thread. I used those techniques when I did my '67 Chevy Concours Estate Wagon a few months ago. As far as the engine goes, the AMT '71 Duster 340 kit has a very nice small block engine with the A/C accessories, even though it has a 4-speed transmission. Either the Lindberg Dodge 330, or Plymouth Belvedere (Stock version) has a Torqueflite 904 transmission. One of my future projects is going to be a '72 Charger Rallye 440, to bookend with my '71 R/T 440 and my Hemi R/T. So many Chargers, so little time!!!!
Very Interesting. If you are doing a factory stock Vinyl Roof on this car, The "A" pillars are not covered with vinyl. My cousin had one back in '67. It was Dark Green, with a Black Vinyl Roof, and Interior. I like this one so far.
I would use the Revell '57 Chevrolet Bel Air 2 Door Sedan Kit, as it has the correct 2 door Sedan Body, and the correct Side Trim mouldings.. You are on your own for everything else. Do a lot of research, and decide on which version of the car you would want to do.
What you stated as above is correct. More than likely, there is a '76 in that box. The '74 is quite rare and pricey, and I have never seen a '75 kit, even though I have a set of '75 Promo Bumpers to go on one of mine. As a fan of Eldorados, I have all of those in kit form, as well as a couple of white '71 promos, one of which I am going to turn into a convertible. One of the ones I have came in the '72 Box, which is kind of weird, as it is a '72, but it does not have any body side louvers, body side mouldings, or scripts on it. From what I have read, It is quite rare. It looks to me that they were trying to anticipate the '73, as the body is close to a '73. I am thinking of building it, painting it Black on Black with no chrome on it whatsoever, except for the wheels. No whitewalls either. It looks like a custom to me.
