Hello everyone, here is my fifth build for my “a day in 1979” series of models for a future diorama.  It represents my uncle’s car as I remember it back in the 70’s.  It was his daily driver and his only car for many years. I weathered it slightly to show some day to day use. I hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think.  Thanks for looking!IMG_1796.thumb.JPG.eeed19f96805015fca3534da727e7592.JPG

Very, very nice, with all your attention to detail it could pass for the 1:1.

Really, really like this build!  The weathering work is outstanding, and the paint-detailing on the interior is outstanding as well!  I agree; it looks like a 1:1; nicely done!

Great build. As others have pointed out the attention to the chassis and engine detailing is very convincing. I like the "Road Splash" on the lower body.

Very nice!  My dad had a 65 Impala and it remains one of my absolute favorite cars.
