68 Impala

Yeah the a.d.d is a problem.

Well im in the lowrider mood lately so im going about sussing some idea's out and possibly do some paint work while the summer weather lasts.

Another kit I bought from ole mate Ray. A very lucky score as it was my holy grail kit.

My liking for the 68 Impala came about from the movie The Principal. Then I became a fan of Lowriders. 

The kit is in the wrong box, no instructions and missing some parts. But that didnt matter.

I really like the tail lights in the bumper of the 68's

That would also be my holy grail kit as  the '67-'68 Impala fastbacks are amongst my most favorite body styles.  The trim lines on this one appears well defined and it looks as though there will be a fair amount of foil work on this body. The chrome looks very bright on this very rare kit.

I'll definitely be following this one. Our family car growing up was a '68 Impala, so they're near and dear to me.

Gotta wonder what happened to the tooling for the body/interior of this one?  (I know the driveline/chassis got recycled each year thru '76)  We really need a plastic '68 again!
