Recommended Posts

Started with a Perry'sresin 1968 GS. Removed all 68 trim.Then added the correct 69 trim. While I am at it Iam correcting the front shape,rear window shape and wheelwell shapes.

The yellow car is a model of my 68 GS 400. I wish I would have fixed the front end shape on that one too.

my buicks were just skylarks, nothing fancy. one of them was actually a "special" same thing as skylark, just different badging. my fave buick from the 60`s tho.......love that rear bumper, and the sweeping line down the side.

cheers

If I knew how to cast I would do it.

Between Raoul and I, you have a couple sold if you decide to give it a whirl and it comes out well.

Very COOL Tim..! A buddy of mine owned a 69 California Special GS....always thought it was a cool looking car. I have a 66 Skylark GS from my dads old stuff I need to restore once I find the parts to...he use to own one think Ill make it as his was.

I kind of stalled out on this at the interior.Also the chassis is irritating me.Seems the amt 69 442 chassis has the trans cross member to far forward.This limits you to using the 442 trans or the interior won't sit down right. I'll get pics later.

Here is a update on the grille.Also a pic of how amt modified the trans pan to clear their crossmember mistake.
