'64 Chevrolet Impala SS409 convertible

Recommended Posts

This was a convertible conversion I built from an AMT '64 Hardtop kit. The resin boot came from the Modelhaus. I built this over 20 years ago and recently pulled it out of my display case to re-photograph it. You can see all the other pics and read the details on my site at the link.

Great color, very convincing model. Another nice one from your bench Sean!

Nice work. After seeing the test shots of Round2 inventory tools, I am guessing they still have the 64 Impala convertible. Sean, you have already done the box art.

Very nice Sean. By the way, what is on the passenger's seat?

Looks like a magazine to me. Nice model, really nice interior.

I still love the AMT 64s and I don't remember ever seeing a nicer version than this. Another home run, Sean.

That is a beautiful model and the photography is also outstanding!

I was going to say that!

I usually photo mine on a white, but that black mirror makes it look like a real promo shot.

Very crisp build. Super-clean and lovely detail.

I'd be proud to have one like that on my shelf!

Really nice Impala. This must be one of the most beautiful '64 Impalas I've ever seen. Always nice to see a W-Block under the hood, even though there was no picture of it, and that color fits perfectly on this body. Sharp looking interior as well, did these have chromed shifter knob from the factory, too? I've never seen that before.

Pretty sure that Sean builds his models as curbsides.
