What a beauty. The colour really suits it, and the engine bay detail is particularly well done. I take it that's a correct colour for the real car that year?

One day about 12 years ago, I got home (in North London back then) to find that somebody a few streets away had a '67 Chevy coupe on their driveway! It was a sort of notch back rather than a fast back like this one. He had bought it on the internet, drunk! I never saw it again, I suspect it was a little more than he bargained for.

Ive always been a big fan of the 60's Chevys. You have built a fine example of one. Very Nice!

Yes, Marina Blue was a '67 color.

I lived in the UK many years ago when I was in the Air Force.  I can relate to the "more than he bargained for" comment - at least as far as size is concerned.  I can't imagine driving that beast on some of the narrow village roads and roundabouts.  You would definitely have the right of way, as you would probably take up most of the road!

Outstanding build in every way. As others have related past encounters with big Impalas. In the fall of '67 I was ordering a '68 full size Bel Air coupe.  On the showroom floor they had a Marina Blue '67 Impala 427 SS with the Pearl White bucket seat interior.  So yes that is very much a valid color combo and it looked just as great in 1:1.

Very....VERY nice.

I've got one of these kits for later on. You may have just given me my color combo.
