Now you’re talking! Gotta love an old ‘Vette! :wub:

I always loved that old AMT kit. It always had the right look.

Nice color choices to boot.
Now that we know that.... What have we learned?...

Got the same kit for Christmas last year. That’s a fantastic finish. Any issues I should be aware of?

Primary problem is getting the tail lights to fit. You will have to enlarge the holes a bit. Also make sure they are close to flush with the openings to be accurate. Everything else is pretty good. I highly recommend Speedway Decals detail set for this. Everything you see that is a decal is on the set. Body badges for FI and non FI cars, engine decals for all engines, interior decals including gauges. Well worth getting, only $10. I recommend different tires if you're building stock. The stock ones kinda suck.

Very nice build Lee. When I worked at the Corvette Center in my early 20's I was the 63-67 guy. Because of that I have an affinity for this body style.
