65 Impala Convertible

Recommended Posts

Finally finished this one up, my latest build. The result of a "rebuild restore" CBP on another forum. Long strange trip, tried a few new ideas and techniques and learned a lot with this build. It fought me every step of the way and really, really tried to get smashed to bits several times. Glad it's done. Here it is...warts and all.

Started with this old build up

Somehow ended up here.

Build album here if interested. Thanks for looking

Very cool custom, even more a fantastic save.How did you repair all the body lines on the front fenders, the front end on the original build looks gone.

Beautiful! It reminds me of a car you'd see at a custom auto show back in the day.  Really nice work transforming that old built-up.

What a glorious custom. Not sold yet on the redlines but everything looks very exciting. Nice photography choices too.

Thanks all! For the fenders I sectioned in part of another body.

About the redlines, I couldn't decide which to use so I went with one set on each side. They come off and are easily replaced.

Incredible build! I especially like the glass top. Everything just looks right.

I like the whitewalls on one side and the redlines on the other!

Nice save ! Awesome blend of AMT and Rev parts nice color combo. Just right for a true 60's custom.!
