Welp, after fifty plus years of neglect and four plus months of the restoration process, this old '69 Impala finally gets to see the light of day again! It's a kitbash of an original promo with a busted windshield frame, Monogram '65 Impala and an AMT '67 Impala. The windshield frame, windshield, rear view mirror, visors, door handles and top are from a Monogram '65 Impala. The chassis, floorpan, drivetrain and underhood detail are from the 67. Paint is Tamiya TS-11 Maroon and Tamiya TS-33 Dull Red.

Thanx for checking it out! 

Here's a couple of photos of what I started with.

As soon as I saw it I said “wow” out loud. This is a really striking looking build! At first I thought it was black and then a couple pics later realized it was red... Very nice work on such a beautiful looking car! The engine details are well done too.
