While watching the Barret Jackson marathon last week the wife and I recalled our high school rides and what may have become of them if we had kept them and restored them.
My wife had a well used '67 Firebird that she sold for $ 900 to get something more economical....fuel costs mileage etc.
I don't build stock, or muscle cars, but the idea of doing a build of her ride seemed like a nice diversion from the usual for me...IF I could source a kit.
After looking into kits of the Firebird - I found a Revell '68 Firebird, the 400 version.....and research indicates the '68 and '67 were near identical with a few minor changes At A Glance: How To Spot Differences In First Gen Firebird (streetmusclemag.com)
To model her car, the 400 engine will have to go, along with the arrow head on the front bumper and any 400 badges, some tail light and gas cap changes.
I'll have to source a 326....any suggestions?
Kit hood will need modification.
Her Firebird was a hardtop with a black vinyl landau top, the original color (as near as she can remember- before she took it to Earl Scheibs) was a teal blue/green kind of like in this picture.
Not sure the kit wheels would be accurate, and the mags in this picture surely are not stock.
Haven't found anything in rattle cans or bottle paints at the LHS to match, was wondering if you guys that build stock Pontiacs or mix paints like House of Kolor have a suggestion.
