Sharp looking paint work. I like the little 327 flags on the front fenders. 

Thanks, I wish I had the Big Block Flags though.....I have a 454 Chevrolet Big Block dropped in it (Revell 1970 Chevelle SS 454)

So it's a sleeper then. B) 

Impressive work on this one all around. Paint, detail, stance, it all comes together quite nicely. It feels like a car with a story.

I really like the cowl hood and front spoiler. I guess I never realized that you were going with a big block. Had I known I could have sent you a few big block emblem decals from the '66 El Camino kit. The stance and the narrow white walls with the chrome rims, always liked that look.

Thank you....I'm having a lot of fun building this one.

Still need to hunt down a few more parts...like you can see there's no brake booster/reservoir. 

Install side view mirror, and waiting for more decal paper to come so I can print a few small decals that I want on this build.

Lots of thanks to @Hondamatic

Very clean work. How did you remove the molded exhaust..

Yes, like Hondamatic said, I used an AMT 66 Nova SS chassis, and all related parts.  

That's why the undercarriage is so detailed. 

Motor is from Revell 70 Chevelle SS454.
