I would actually give them the 63 Riviera, But where is the 70 Riviera, and the 71?
As far as corvettes go, I would have to say 1967 would be the best.
I don't really think a Camaro belong on the list at all. Style wise I can think of a lot of Cadillacs that look a whole lot better than a Camaro.
1) EVAP canister, (formally known as the charcoal canister).
2)Yes fuel tank, unknown about one or two.
3)Two fuel lines, (pressure, and return) one brake line, and I believe that the last would be EVAP line (They still feed to the intake)
This is cool isn't it? My last car bought, I changed the brakes on the front only, and proceded to drive the thing for 10 years before I changed them again!
The only reason I changed them after the ten years was because the rear brakes were starting to leak, and get wore out. It went 63 miles a day to work and back!
I've been thinking that my new years resolution should be to 1. work less, and 2. build more models! Maybe build some of the models at work, I mean, do I really have to try to be the best at work, or just better than the worst?
White is correct for a 1965 Shelby GT 350. If you were to convert it to a 1966 Shelby, then it could be painted other colors. To convert it, you would need side scoops, 1/4 panel windows, and the 1966 GT interior. Those are the major differences.
I think it was the AMT 1957 chevy that had a wide grill of corvette teeth in it. It was the early release, not the newer ones. Let me look around for ya!
Yeah, I found this on E-Bay. It is not mine...
I believe just about any of the metal axle 57 kits from AMT should have the grill.
Cato, Thanks. I built this as a practise run for the GT-40 I have waiting in the wings...Now I am not sure I want to start it next..
Al "Mr. Winston!", Thanks, didn't really put much detail into this one though, Really just about box stock.
Thanks guys. I tried weathering it based on the movie Le MANS, but I didn't go near as far with it as in the movie. I thought it might be a little over done also, but the flash from the camera really takes some of the weathering out of it.
Hey Bruce, I just finished an 1/8 scale model and used the cloth medical tape to replicate canvas. I just burnished it down real good, cut it, and painted it. This is the best picture I could find.
It should be just fine for a 1/25 headliner.
I am not totally sure what front suspension your 1:1 truck has, but I think you might be better off with the 65 frame and suspension. The 60 chevy has torsion bar front end, and the 65 has the coil springs. I think your truck has coil springs in front, right?
