  1. - 1983 - White or Blue exterior with blue graphics, two tone white and blue bench seat interior with woodgrain accents. Steel rally wheels with trim rings. - 1984 - White or Blue exterior with blue graphics, solid blue interior, bench or buckets available with woodgrain accents. I seems they went half way with these years to guage interest, since most interior parts were not specific to the SS. - 1985 - White, Silver, Burgandy and Black exteriors, red or burgandy multi toned stripes based on the color, with Burgandy or Gray interiors, black brushed interior accents with red striping, bench, 60/40 or bucket seats. - 1986 - White, Silver, Burgandy and Black exteriors, red or burgandy multi toned stripes based on the color, with Burgandy or Gray interiors, black brushed interior accents with red striping, bench, 60/40 or bucket seats. Aluminum 5 spoke wheels replaced the steels, third brake light was bolted in and and T-tops became available. - 1987 - White, Silver, Burgandy and Black exteriors, red, gray or gold multi toned stripes with purchaser's choice, with Burgandy, Gray or Tan plush interiors, Aerocoupe is added. - 1988 - Same as 1987, however, the brochure listed Gold as an additional color, but was never produced. My previous Montes: '71, '72, '74, '80, '85 SS, Silver with Gray (my first new car), 2002 SS, Silver with Black. I guess I've had a Monte sickness.
  2. Just an FYI for locals interested: Hobbytown located in Orland Park, IL is having a special contest for the Super Shaker kit. They have a ton of the kits special priced at $ 10 each, and will have a contest on June 18th for that kit only, box stock only, no other parts.
  3. Thank you Rusty. I too have owned and restored a few '62 and '63 impalas, still my favorite cars.
  4. Actually, the front one is the fuel tank, the rear one is the trunk well.
  5. Excellent color! Mine will be candy green and white when I get around to building it.
  6. I too had a '79 (well my father owned it, bought it new, but I drove it some times) and it had the flat hood. I think the other hood was only on the '78. That was a fun truck, probably one of the fastest vehicles made at that time.
  7. I would still be a 210. The 210 hardtop is one of the rarest models in each of the tri-five years. great look on the '56
  8. thanks for the info. the car looks great. a guy down the street has a 1:1 in copper color, very similar to yours. great job.
  9. great looking muscle, can I ask where the redlines and ignition wires came from. They look great.
  10. i don't think he is going factory if he plans to use the lowered supensions with the mags. btw, great Galaxy in your gallery. I always go for mags over hucaps.
  11. I have just discovered your magazine and site after visiting the ihobby show on Sunday. I have been disappointed in the "other" model car mag since it was purchased and away from the hobby for a few years, so reading your magazine has been very refreshing. The amount of talent out there is unbelievable. so, I just want to say thanks for the great publication dedicated to the hobbiest and also for the great online forums which have made me less productive, but are very entertaining.
