AMT 1969 Chevelle

Recommended Posts

Quickie build.  I've always preferred the '68-69 to the '70.  Box stock, typical vintage AMT kit had fit issues.  Only thing I added from the parts box, a voice in the back of my head kept saying "rearview mirror".

Comments welcome, thanks for looking.

Gotta love a red Chevelle! May I ask what shade of red that is?

I've had one of these on the bench for soooo long; still fight it when I have a few spare moments...

Very nice straight from the box build. I agree with you on the rear view mirror, you don't notice it until you see one with it. The only thing I would suggest has to do with the front bumper. You've got perfect looking parking lamps, but the area where they are mounted is open on the 1:1 car. A little flat black paint in the indentation area of the bumper will give it a lot more depth.

Great point, I missed that completely.  Thanks to everyone for all the kind comments.

That paint looks like a pretty good match for '69 Chevy Garnet Red.

Rustoleum Gloss Colonial Red.  I like that it's red, but not "in your face look at me" red.

" I like that it's red, but not "in your face look at me" red."

Agreed! Very classy.
