AMT '70 Chevy Impala
Pete in Lincs posted a topic in Work In Progress - VehiclesWell, I had the day off work and I still need to get paint for my '65 Grand Prix build. What to do? I got this one off the bay as spares or repairs. It's mostly just missing the engine and a set of wide tyres. All the important stuff is there. So let's see what we have then.... A shelf worn box for one. This was also boxed as 'Heavy Chevy'. There's one on the bay as I write this. Love the shape! The shell. A few very small scratches but otherwise very nice. Lots of other bits including the custom parts. So it'll be another lowrider. Two sets of very similar wheels. No metal axles on this kit, but the wheels must be glued to plastic stubs, so no vroom vroom on the shelf A little later and I had it mocked up to check the ride height and stance. Cool. The front suspension setup is rather vague and requires patience and three hands. How a ten year would get on I shudder to think. Did I mention no engine? Luckily I have a few spares. I chose the one seen here bottom left. Already wired from years ago. The engine simply sits on the crossmember. No attempt at proper mounts then. I found a propshaft that fitted too. And that is where this one stands so far. Looks like I'm going to need more paint fairly soon. Whether the weather will be good enough to paint is another matter. We shall see. Thanks for looking, and your comments are always welcome. Cheers, Pete
