These are pictures of my 1959 Chevy Biscayne Custom Car. I used a Hendrix resin body and a Revell/Monogram 1959 Chevy Impala donor kit. It features a slammed chassis, a 427 435 H.P. Corvette engine / 4-speed transmission and custom 19" Rally wheels with Pegasus big 'n little "rubber band" tires. Custom features are a custom 1960 Mercury grille, custom rolled and pleated seat inserts, an Oldsmobile steering wheel, filled hood air vents, a hinged hood and Ala Kart nerf bars. It is finished in 'Sinful Creations' Let's Talk purple nail polish with polished Duplicolor clear. The pretty much stock interior is painted Lavender acrylic with coats of Krylon Matte clear.

Enjoy!

I am in love, those wheels are killer, where did the centers come from

Thanks for your comment. The 19" rally wheels are resin items that I picked up on an EBay auction. If I am able to locate the business name, I will post that information for you. :)

Wow Steve! This is to COOL! Great color, and I love the wheel/tire treatment. Nice build! If you don't mind my asking....what 'vette model did you pull the engine from?

Thanks for your feedback. The 435 H.P. 427 came out of the Revell/Monogram 1967 Corvette convertible kit.

Very nice work Steve, are they PSF wheels?

You nailed it, sir. I just checked and they are, indeed, from PSF. I coated them with Spaz Stix Chrome. Still working on that technique, though. :rolleyes:
