AMT 63 Impala

Recommended Posts

I started this one many years ago. I got the frame fitted and the body in primer but then that was it. Since I got the new release I thought I'd get this one back out and try to finish it.

I had to cut off the radiator support from the body and the mounting tab on the front grill/bumper to get the front to fit. I also needed to remove the rear mounting posts for the back bumper. I don't remember if I needed to modify the frame from the 62 Bel Air any. I was going to use the fender wells from the Bel Air but I think I'll just use the ones that came with the 63 Impala and the firewall from the 62 Bel Air to get this one done.

I still need to do a little bit of sanding on the floor of the 63 interior to fit the 62 Bel Air frame properly in the body. I think I like the gloss black rims on this build. The engine is going to be one from the AMT 62 Bel Air with the cross ram intake, the chrome exhaust headers from the AMT 64 Impala, and it's custom exhaust system.
