Chevy 4wd setup solutions?
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, March 2, 2004 6:39 AM
Hi All,

I'm in the process of building my father's '94 Chevy Z71. I have an AMT '94 Silverado promo kit that is 2wd. I'd picked up a Revell '99 Silverado (black one on the box art) in hopes of it being a 4wd kit, but it is not. I've also seen a Revell 'Amigo Pack - Kevin Van Dam's Team Pro Finish Chevy Silverado' that I'm guessing is still lacking 4wd. Does anyone make an accurate modern-day 4wd Chevy or should I go the route of scavanging '70's kits?

im not sure about this but i think late chevy 4wd is independent suspention, earlier models had a straight front axle. the 4wd setup from a late 90`s blazer kit might work.

I went to a "gentleman's club" because the sign said they had all the hottest models. I thought it was a hobby shop. Man, was I ever disappointed.

Sign - DittoSign - Ditto i think roadhawg is right on this, and yes the kevin van dam kit is the same as the silverado (99) thats black on the box.

you could always put one of the rear diffs in front and do some custom fabbing.

You might be able to get the AMT Chevy Tahoe Snap Kit. It would have a promo style frame that could be chopped up for use on the C1500 promo frame and you would have the proper wheels to put on the truck.

Do a google search for perry's resin and you should find it!
