Finished this pooch. I might order a aftermarket master cyl/booster,since the kit lacks one at all. All in all I reckon its turned out well, considering the horrible kit it is.
A better way would be to use the Revell '66 GTO chassis & engine, with a wheelbase cut. Anyway, here she is.
Ignore the  body colour here, I've boosted the brightness to show the engine bay.

Nice save. Great paint.

Did add the heater box and wiper motor or were they part of the kit? Seems with all that detail there would have surely been a master cylinder.

Well spotted. Heater box is kit, hoses are solder. Wiper motor is Monogram '68 GTO.

Hi,
A great job from yours indeed, on such a poor kit.
Congratulations,
