1965 Impala Street Cruiser

Recommended Posts

What's good all, started cleaning off (dusting) shelves and cases, thought it would be a good time to share some pics of some older builds.  This was the old Monogram 65' Impala kit, for the most part box stock aside from MAS steering wheel, wheels and air cleaner, tires may have been some American Satcos.  The interior is detailed with flocking, BMF, engine was kit provided, wired, fuel line etc., paint and clear was Sikkens, color was a newer Chevy Blue Pearl.  Kit was fun to build, went together fairly well with minimal issues.  Just realized I still need to add a mirror to the driver door.

Superb looking build. Friggin' engine bay looks like a million bucks!!!

Thank you, back when this was built, someone was offering the kit chromed, all but the body.  I used a lot of the engine and suspension pieces.  Thank you again for the comment!
