I wish I started giving you information and pictures when I started the project but since I didn’t I will give you lots of pictures now. This one was built for the Great Salt Lake International Model Car Championship coming up this month. They have a class for the new Revell 67 Camaro kit for Chevy’s 50th Anniversary of the Camaro.
So of course I pro streeted mine. What did you expect? A custom? Ha Ha.
I started with the Revell 1967 kit. IT is a fantastic kit even if you want to build a stock camaro . I have added a few to my collection as I also love to build factory stock muscle cars.
I fitted this one with the chassis from Revell’s Matt and Debbie Hayes T Bird kit. I stretched the rear wheel wells forward to fit the T Bird chassis. I had to shorten the firewall a little other than that it fit pretty good.
I used the 454 engine and blower from AMT’s 68 El Camino Street Machine kit. I also used the wheels from this kit and just widened the rear wheels using part of the T Bird wheels and the El Camino wheels.
I shaved all the door handles and emblems off of the Camaro. I also tucked in the bumpers and molded them in to the body. The front spoiler was cut off of a Monogram 88 Camaro stock body and narrowed to kit the 67 and molded in. The ground effects were taken from the T Bird body and the rear view mirrors also . The ground effects on the rear of the car were scratch built. The hood is from a 1969 Camaro cowl hood. I cut the scoop loose and added plastic to raise it up taller and then cut the opening in the front.
The car is painted Testor’s candy blue over a silver base. I added my own design of the stock camaro stripes which were painted black and then covered in candy blue also. The entire chassis and roll cage and parts on the engine are also painted candy blue. The interior is done in a tan leather look and has full stereo as this car is being built as a pro street pro show car. This is the type of car you would have seen trailered to a show as it is too beautiful to be driven.
The Floor mats in the interior were ordered from Model Car Roundup.
