Club 409
Posted by TR4-Tim on Monday, October 01, 2018 8:19 PM

This is a series of street machines I built between 1985 and 1987. These are all Chevy's with 409 engines, monochromatic paint, some mild custom body work, blacked out trim, and modernized interiors. Some of it looks rather dated now, but I had a good time building them, way back then. Enjoy! 

1st up, AMT '58 Impala. 

2nd example is a Revell '56 Chevy, the older version with opening hood, doors and trunk. 

3rd club member is an AMT '55 Nomad, sectioned, doors opened up, custom chassis. Going for a bit of Ferrari influence with BB512 wheels. 

4th and final example here is a combination of Revell '55 Chevy hardtop mixed with Monogram Mustang GTP. Full roll cage inside, major ground effects tunnel under neath, twin turbo 409 under the front end. The body is sectioned on this one too.

That 55 and mustang gtp is quite the mash up! Very well executed, especially the engine.

Looks like you've had 'the touch' for some time. Have you re-done one of these recently to show how much your skill has improved?

Hello there! Yep, still building, and still using Buttera suspension bits from the Revell '26 T sedan. To see my latest build completed 9/22, check out the posting of my Revell '31 Ford woody. Thanks!
