Another of my older builds, this is the AMT 51 Chevy Bel Air hardtop. I used the same corduroy upholstery as I did on my 50 Ford convertible. Aftermarket wheels & two-tone paint with a small block for power. Hope you enjoy.

And I think Harry mentioned something recently about no one adding valve stems to their wheels...the photo is a bit blurry but I think you can see my valve stem in that shot.

Hey that looks sweet, I like the idea of using corduroy as upholstery it looks very nice. Now I need to find a build I can use that idea on... Very sharp looking chevy, nice engine detail and a smooth finish.

I especially like the two tone paint. The whole Car is really cool too excellent detail, and a good choice of wheels.

I love the color! The ride hieght and stance are spot on. However, something didn't look right. So I googled 51 chevy hardtpop pics, and there it was. It's missing the verticle chrome trim found on the rear window. A problem with the kit I'm sure. Still a very nice finished product, well done.

Awesome build of the 51 Chevy!

The interior work is very nice. I'd like to know more on how you work with the corduroy as well.
