'62 Chevy Impala Custom

9 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

My latest project. I bought this AMT Chevy Impala Convertible from local model car show last weekend. Previous owner was started to some custom modifications like windshield frame was chopped and few emblems were removed. Chassis is lowered by previous owner and it's as low as it could be. B) Engine came with the model and its small block Chevy with TH350 transmission. I will put my skills to the test with this project so i will detailed it as good as i can. ;) Here's few pics how it look like now.

Yep, It's very low but nothing scratch to ground and that is very good thing. B) It's so low that exhaust pipes will be somekind of problem in future. :lol:

Previous owner was sanded chromes of bumpers so they will be in body color.

And the engine. It's almost finished. Need to put starter motor,air cleaner,some hoses, transmission oil fill tube and kickdown wire and then it's mostly finished.
