Revell 64 Impala Street Machine

Recommended Posts

My latest project, a Revell '64 Impala SS done as a street machine. I am taking the engine and tires/wheels from the AMT 68 El Camino Street Machine kit and transporting them onto the Revell Chevy. I am going to use the lowered suspension for this build. The tires are big and littles so I will have a rake once it's done. Color I think will be Mythical Maroon.

396 Big block with street blower from El Camino kit. I'm still in the process of building the engine.

I had to move the transmission crossmember back for proper alignment of the engine.

The engine is more complete now.

The intake fit so loosely that I created some "gaskets" out of flat stock and painted them flat blue.

I'm enjoying watching your build. I like your "Gasket idea". I'll have to remember that for myself.

I changed up the tire/wheel combo for something from Revell, they fit the wheel wells better :-)
