Recommended Posts

Was there ever a 64 Chevelle/El Camino  photo etch set offered by anyone. I have checked ModelCarGarage

Thanks

This looks like it was crafted from a couple of sets. Anyone recognize them?

Not sure what that grille is from, but it's not a Chevelle piece.  MCG does make a set for the Revell '65 kit, most of the scripts should be the same.  MCG doesn't really do anything for long out of production kits.  I once suggested smaller "exterior only" sets (no grilles or interior stuff) for reissued Round 2 kits; Bob told me he'd consider it, but maybe it just wouldn't be worthwhile financially for him to do that.  Aftermarket items designed for specific kits really fall off in sales when the base kit is not in current production.

That is one piece I really want .....

The MCG website includes magnified views of each of their offerings.  You'd have to go one by one checking them to figure out what was used here.  The grille pattern resembles a '60 Falcon or Ranchero to me, but I know MCG doesn't offer a set for that kit.

You might be able to cut down a '64 Impala grille and add some thin strip for the thicker bars.

It could also be made from the PE for a boat. Looks like the railing if you knew what size you need. It comes in different scales.

It's also possible it's custom made.
