It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a West Coast Precision Diecast. The 1959’s were a pleasant surprise to review. From a young upstart diecast maker, I was impressed beyond belief. I even said that they were essentially now running with the ‘big dogs’; FM, DM and CMC. More Impalas were released and I found that the 1961 and 1962 renderings that I reviewed were better still! So I have been looking forward to getting my little fingerprints on a ’64 to see if Brian and the crew had remained faithful to the Impala crowd, precision diecast fans and onlookers such as me. Well, yeah buddy, I got my answer. The ‘64’s are awesome!

In Lagoon Aqua Poly with WCPD’s white vinyl roof option, the hardtop epitomizes Impala’s appeal for 1964 and far beyond. Not as light as the sporty Azure Aqua, the Lagoon Aqua is a deeper color more suited, to my mind, for the serious SS 409 package this car was opted out in. The white interior adds a generous measure of class and sophistication. The models still use the amazing scissors-spring hinges but are refined to work flawlessly in both opening and closing tightly and maintain perfect alignment. Operational features are abundant too. Sun visors fold up and down and fuel filler doors open to show off the gas cap. The doors open accurately to the 1:1 on internal hinging and the scaled trunk hinges, seat belts and operational console door lends great authenticity.

Details are exceptional in the chassis replication. You’ll find operating suspension, brake lines, a turning driveshaft, and every sort of traction control arm and sway bar imaginable plus the addition of fabulous transmission and fuel lines. The engine compartment completes the picture with fantastic miniaturization of throttle return spring linkage, fuel lines and electric cables and realistic stickers. As always, the wheel covers are removable and grant a nice look of the car either way. The body and stance of the model gives a faithful appearance to the 1:1.

There’s a lot to like in these ‘64’s, whether you are a Chevy fan, an Impala aficionado, a muscle car guy or gal or just enjoy model miniaturization at its finest. WCPD has scored an impressive mark with the Impala and it keeps getting better!
