67 Impala 4 door

Recommended Posts

Will have poverty caps, either redlines or whitewalls and a TH400. Painted in Madiera Maroon  custom mixed at work. I'm leaning towards a black interior  but maybe parchment.

Paint looks good. I have always liked the parchment interiors.

Paint looks good! I think an interior a shade off of the body color would look nice in it.

Unfortunately a maroon interior wasn't stock. There was red but I'm pretty sure it was quite a bit lighter . It would look good tho.

My neighbor had one of those in that color in the 70s and 80s! By the end of the 80s it was a real rat. Rotted to death!😂

Looks great so far ! Excellent colour choice --- perfect for a big 4 door hardtop ( Sport Sedan , in Chevrolet lingo ) of that era .

The Mark IV looks nice as well . I'm guessing that you're going to slide a TH-400 behind it (?) . That's my plan ; however , I may procure the 396 / 400 from the '68 El Camino , or the 454 / 400 from the '70 Monte Carlo .

I think the majority but certainly not all are interested in it as a 4 door more than the Supernatural connection.

I am excited about it for my Goodie Shop Diorama.

I think that the appeal to a lot of builders is the main stream nature of the kit. This gives everyone something that normally would only be available as a resin casting. Nothing wrong with that, but for the cost of a casting alone you have an entire kit and don't have to cannibalize an existing kit.

Nice!  I’m doing one in the same color with the black interior.  I found some resin ‘67 Impala SS hubcaps, I might try to remove the SS emblems and paint the bow ties on.

Going with burgundy interior. Mixed a slightly lighter shade for the carpet.

Got the prototype badges from Speedway Decals. If the are correct this is how the sheet will look if offered.

Lee are the decals to scale they look a little heavy? I ordered a couple of sets and hope they fit.

Those are good looking trim pieces. Looks like you have badges for the 427, 396. and 327 engines. The 325/396 was a pretty common option at that time for someone wanting a little, well OK, a lot more torque than the 327 had to offer.

These are preproduction examples. They look good to my eyes and badges for all engines are there. Im pretty sure they'll fit fine. He's never been off yet..
