Monogram 1957 Chevy 60’s/70’s style

Recommended Posts

Here’s a monogram 57 Chevy Bel Air 1/12 scale a buddy name Dave sent me about 10 years ago, I’ve been working on it for about that long off and on ! Finally finished!!! Lots of little mods and details, wheels are SS cragar from the Mpc shaker trike , tires are form the 57 Chevy kit I cut them and made them smaller to look more like 5:20 size tires, low riders will know what the means, I was going for a late 60’s early 70’s style low rider , shaved here and there , car had to have a 57 Buick grille, so I made a look alike, at first glance it fools the eye , motor is from the Mpc shaker trike also, paint is a metal flake silver base with a Candy brandy wine, top is multi color candys, car has only been in two shows this year and has done very well for its self , well I won’t bore ya , hope ya like .

Great build. I love the attention to detail. The faux grille is very convincing and I like the speakers on the package tray. Lovely paint indeed! That brandy wine is a great color.

Sweet Lowrider !  Your works never cease to impress me --- absolutely spectacular ! 

Organ Pipe Speakers ! Is there a Muntz 4-Track under that dash ? 

P.S. : Thank you for putting authentic , period-correct wheels on your 'riders ! I despise Daytons ; they're not at all correct for a '60's - '70's Lowrider .

Keep up the great , amazing cars coming !
