      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

AMT 67/68 Impala custom

29 posts in this topic

I got this original AMT 1968 Impala Custom (it’s really a 67) from MJ. It was used and Mike repainted it with Boyds orange pearl before I got it so I left it alone. I foiled it, painted the original custom interior and added aftermarket wheels and brakes. I added a Revell 69 Camaro front spoiler, aluminum exhaust tips, photo etch “SS†on the grill and Impala’s on the rear roof. It is a curbside so no motor. After I shot the photos I realized the rear bumper slipped down so I will have to re epoxy it. Enjoy!

But the 3rd pic isn't showing. You left the space in the html between the "bracket" and the "img" Why does Fotki do that? It's such a pain to constantly remove it.

Nice Impala. Love the color and the custom roof treatment.Kind of a big blind spot though, lol. Nice as always

For those who wonder about the rear window treatment, I do too ! This was supposed to be a "cool" custom idea that AMT came up with. I remember cutting the window open in the first one that I built.

Bob :shock:

Unusual? Uh, yeah, it is. I really like the stock version of this car to start with, but this treatment is sweet!

Nice work, Irv!

I found this kit on a store shelf in 1973 along with the MPC 1968s. I left the sealed AMT and bought the MPCs. Your build is beautiful and makes me think differently now.

Looks cool Irv. I've always liked the look of that car. 

If I could find a copy of the front and rear custom parts I'd do one with the newer kit. 

Looks to me that the older kits got the lines of the rear 1/4s more correct than the new one though.

A real head-turner!

Very sleek and beautifully built.

I like seeing the custom versions built up. It makes a nice change.

The long, flowing lines make those big rims look right at home .
