She has had the car since it was new.

Added quarter windows
BMF
Flocked carpet

Rubber rear bumper pad Evergreen stock
Mix of Testers "One Coat Lacquer" Inca Gold and Pure Gold and Krylon Flat Black
Wheels from AMT 63 Impala
Tires from parts box
Hood locks from Revell 70 Mach 1
Decals from Keith Marks sealed with Rustoleum flat clear
Engine mix of heads, valve covers, intake and air cleaner from Revell 70 Mach 1 and kit engine and transmission
Transmission modified to look like a C6 automatic
Exhaust from Revell 70 Mach 1
Plug wires, fuel line, PVC hose and vacuum advance line added
License plate from picture of real car resized and printed out, laminated with Scotch "Magic" tape and glued on with CA.

Sorry I missed the WIP Mitch (been a bit preoccupied) but man you have nailed the look of your uncle's car.

NICE one!!

An excellent reproduction of the real car.

Very nice job on the hood decal. I've just destroyed the one on my '71 Boss restoration. Just too large over too many curves.

Chuckled at totally real appearance. Vinyl roof was a classy option back then, not easily duplicated on a model, thanx!
