1962 Chevrolet Impala 409
Posted by Mr Mike on Friday, March 17, 2017 1:19 PM

This is my '62 Impala 409 painted with Dupli-Color Light Blue Metallic.  I raised the rear suspension, added aluminium tubing exhaust tips, wired the engine, blued the exhaust headers, and added a tach on the steering column.

Aahhh, yeah, that's a sweet build! I like the stance, I grew up when everyone seemed to do that a lot, but I see it only rarely now. Vanity plate is a nice touch.

Very nice! Glad to see soomeone else adding plug wires. Seems most dont, and I think a simple addition, easy to do, makes a model come alive.

Thank you everyone!  The plug wires is such an easy thing to do and most of my builds usually have them.  The vanity plates is another easy thing I do and most of my builds have them, too.  It also identifies a build as mine when it's completed.  It's the last thing to go on.

I've always liked the Impalas from the early '60s from when I was a little boy.

While I do like mostly Mopars and Fords, some Chevys appeal to me.  Certain Impalas, Chevelles, Corvettes, and a Nova or two.
