AMT 1966 Chevy Nova Pro Street


Recommended Posts

I just finished this today. Not my best work but I'm happy with it. Built mostly box stock except I used the rear tires and plate decals from the AMT '67 Chevelle pro street. Drilled out the holes in the rims. A few mods were necessary to make things fit right, especially to the cut-out in the hood and the top of the grill. Tamiya TS-20 metallic green and TS-26 pure white. Used Molotow on the trim. I'll be adding a side view mirror and Super Sport decals for the rear quarter panels (if I can find the decals). Comment welcome!

Man that 66 looks good.  I like anything Pro Street.  That color looks really nice.  Maybe some bigger exhaust pipes like 2 1/2" to 3" to let that puppy breath ☺

Yes those things are way too small. They were the last things I glued on.  I almost didn’t put them on thinking I’ll wait to use something else before I post pics. But  I just wanted to ‘get r done’ and move on to the next build. I’ll probably change to larger pipes in the future. Thanks for the comments!

Real nice, the front wheels turned gives that car magazine feel which is great, love that you lost the scoop and just the dual quads out the hood, well done,

Thanks Lazlow! I didn't like the looks of the scoop in the kit so decided to delete it. But I wish I could have gotten the dual quads and filters centered better in the hood opening.

Great looking color. I'll bet that really looks good in the sun light. Very clean looking conversion to the Pro Street style. I like how the carbs just poke out of the hood. 

Thanks David!
