80s issue bought for a fiver (considering how rare these are), but it was started with some things glued and tons of parts missing but luckily had most of the main essential parts intact. Had to fab up grill inserts using mesh screening, headlights from a 57 Bel Air, and a parts dashboard modded and trimmed down from a AMT drag car of some sort. Most of the suspension parts were ether missing or glued to bonded mush so cooked up a C4 front suspension and rear from a Monogram Monte Carlo. The V12 flathead engine was glued to high hell and the wonky molded in v8 headers weren't appealing, so in went a Viper v10 with custom intake tubes and radiator. Wheels and Tires were from the Cali wheels issue 57 Bel-air and a 5th extra was found to act as a de-facto spare tire since the kits piece was missing. Paint is Tamiya Clear Orange over Rustoluem Aluminum cleared with future, and some tribal decals were spares from one of the 66 Impalas I built.

  • I like the modern driver theme. Many Poo poo'd  this kit so your turnaround is a real standout. Great looking paint finish and the interior looks real nice also.
