AMT 1964 Pontiac Tempest Le Mans Convertible


Recommended Posts


As the owner of a real 64 you did an outstanding job the only thing I would change is the color of the steering wheel , the 4 spoke wheel represents the factory 64 only wood wheel.

Thanks for the input Troy. The model came without a steering wheel so I bought a Modelhaus replacement (which represented the standard 2-spoke wheel) but it was broken by the time I got to it. Pity I didn't notice that the 4-spoke should have a wooden rim though - aside from being correct it would have added a dash more colour to an otherwise rather dark interior. It's a bit late now.

I think I could have done better with the rear "grille" - looks like the tail lights should have thin chrome strips and the grille between them should match the lights - or is that just on GTOs?

I would like to have used the kit's original stock Tempest hubcaps too but couldn't figure out a way to detail them nicely.
