Did a bit of work today on the new AMT 55 Corvette


Recommended Posts

I am using the AMT 57 Corvette frame and engine under the AMT 55 Corvette body because I feel the 57 frame is overall superior to what comes in the 53/55 kits.

I have the front spindles in so I could see how it would sit.

I also did some boring things like paint the engine, sand some on the body, etc..

The AMT 57 Corvette frame really works great on the 55 body.

Thanks for looking.

   I just dug out the similar '53 AMT kit from 1990 and looking through

it just last night.  I like the Blue Flame engine in the kit, but would

rather see it in a Hot Rod or Rat Rod build!

  So I might just do something like this myself. I like the way it sits

and look forward to seeing more!!
