57 Impala :ugh:

The AMT 58 Impala has opening doors, I used to have the original version and it was one of the better AMTs I bought back in the day.
I think the 70 Impala kit is shit. Dunno about the 63 Impala, I bought Revells 63...49 merc, got no clue, probably not one to expect great things from, because it is AMT.

for the 57 see if you still could get the pro shop edition. i think it was a skill 3
Yeah and I think it had some nice custom parts if I am not mistaken

AMT made 3 57 Bel Airs. The old one is still around, decent kit for its age, with the typical 3 n 1 options, different engine, neat custom parts for the body including a 57 Buick grille. Then they came out with a super detailed version a couple years ago, opening trunk and everything, real nice kit. Then based on the same kit, they came out with a street machine version that has a whole different chassis (with a bowtie on the gas tank), beefed up engine, etc. There's a pro shop version too that includes some doodads like photoetch parts and wiring.

70 Impala is a decent kit, fair detail. 63 Impala is pretty basic, like 1 step up from a snap kit. 49 Merc is along the lines of the 70 as far as age and detail. Comes with some custom goodies too.

Don't dog AMT, they have nice kits, Revell and Monogram have their share of bullshit too.
