[PIC] Spark did the '65 version (hidden headlamps)
Tidy enough model apart from the A pillars which look too heavy, or have too many conflicting bits of brightwork, and the brightwork on the header rail looks slightly too low in relation to the side window trim. I seem to remember one or two people - including myself - commented on that when the model appeared, From some angles (and in some colours) it almost gives the impression that the windscreen/windshield is slightly too wide for the body, although it doesn't look TOO bad in the black one shown here.

Another good version of this classic design would always be welcome.

And by the way I would also welcome a '66 Riviera with the original grille. Neo did a nice Riviera but with the later facelift (68?) which I found less attractive than the "pure" original version (others may disagree)
