'66 Malibu Sedan

Recommended Posts

Just finished this one up. It's been one of toughest builds I've done in a while! Anything that could go wrong, did! It's the Revell '67 with the '66 El Camino front clip and '66 wagon grille. The taillight panel and rear bumper are from the Monogram kit. Taillights from the Lindberg kit. I modified the roof into a sedan with sheet styrene. Inside the interior, I used the rear seats from the Monogram for the rear and front bench seat. Engine is from the kit with the fuel injection from an AMT '72 Chevelle, headers from a Revell '69 Camaro and valve covers from the AMT '57 Corvette. Paint is Model Masters Artesian Turquoise inside and out with Tamiya clear. Wheels and tires from the Revell '62 Corvette.

Gorgeous coupe ! Excellent craftsmanship on the conversion from hardtop-to-coupe ; from 1967-to-1966 .

Great job creating this little 300 coupe. I did the same front end swap putting a '67 front end on a '66 El Camino. See my Avatar. You would think they would just match up, but they don't.

Thanx! This model is the leftovers from the same conversion. I never have been happy with the El Camino I built. Someday, I want to strip it and repaint it.

I picked up a resin '67 Chevelle 300 two door, just need some grill and tail lights and I think a '67 hood. The '66 El Camino kit is much like the wagon and I think a good kit. The problems I ran into building a model of my personal old '67 El Camino was grafting the '67 Chevelle front end on the El Camino body. The lower body line to the bottom of the fender has a different shape between the two year models. I was able to create the tail light housing from the '67 and mix and match the interior pieces.
