1959 Chevrolet Impala Convertible

Build Date: 2005

This is a box stock build of Monogram's excellent kit. This kit is definitely one for experienced modelers, but with some effort, builds up into an outstanding display piece.

When this kit was released in the early 90s it represented a new level of quality and exceptional detail, such as separate chrome trim, door handles, etc.

Check out how I redid the color of the seat inserts in the Tips & Tricks section.

Paint is '59 Chevy Cameo Coral from MCW Automotive Finishes.

One thing I really liked about the kit was the inclusion of factory authentic accessories like the continental kit and skirts.

I also liked having a choice of top up or top down.

Revell/Monogram also released a hardtop version of the kit.
