1962 Chevy ll ,detailed
This is one of the cheap magazine models. Most of my collection is vintage stuff but my mom had this exact car in the same color. I remember us driving to upstate New York in it to visit my Aunt and Uncle in the summer of 62.

It's funny, some of the least valuable models become my favorites.

I repainted the interior in red, ground off the bumper guards, got rid of the dreaded black dots in the headlights, blacked out the grille, and chromed all the printed on trim. It is now exactly like the one my mom had.

Here are some photos. The first one is as it looks out of the package.
