It's a pretty good model for being old (originally in 1970). Decent detail, fits good, biggest problem I know of is there's no master cylinder. I haven't built one, but I'm using some to restore and detail out some kits I'm working on. This one's not mine, but you get the idea

I think it's just a re-issue of the original que no??? I remember back in the 80's this was the kit to get because it came with the chain steering wheel!! lol. It's a nice kit though comes with some nice rims and hubs.

cool. so should i get it? i gotta get a tire mounted this weekend but my boy works at sears auto so i might get it for free........so if i dont spend all my $$$$ i might be in the market for a good cheap model
It's really up to you homie...The one I have gives you three options, the stock, drag and lowrider. So you get the stock hubs that look like straight lace spokes. And I think there are two sets of 5 star spokes, like cragars. Hope that helps.

i agree. the rest of the car is hella nice but that bumper looks like str8 dog poo poo :uh:
dont get me wrong though, not hatin because its off a Chevelle or anything, because you all know that is more my style anyways ;)
even though the 66's are one of my least favorite years.
but that stuff looks better on the car it belongs on.

i do give props for "trying" to build something custom but that pretty much killed that Impala.
