'61 Chevy Impala SS - A BlackSheep214 Production...

Postby BlackSheep214 » Sun Dec 06, 2020 9:10 pm

She is finally finished! I've been anxious to get her done because I've had it with her. :whistle: :giggles:

I used tires from the '70 1/2 Baldwin Motion Camaro mule kit, Master brake cylinder & Air cleaner from spares box to replicate a modern muscle car addition. Color is Turquoise Teal. I purposely flipped the front wheel struts upside down to give it a lowered stance look.

Very nice build! I love that color on it.

Thank ypu, Joe! I'm glad I flopped the front end bearings upside down. It certainly did give me the stance I was looking for. After a lot of thinking of how this gave me fits, I've grown to like this kit warts & all and it's quirks. Definitely a learning experience. I do want to tale another go at it someday. Who knows what I'll have up my sleeves by then. :lashed:
