AMT 1957 Custom Chevy Model Kit

1957 chevy 409


An AMT 1957 Chevy custom.

This kit was reissued a few years back. I got this one from a friend who had it a long time, it's probably an original issue from the 1960s-1970s. I stripped it and redid it. It came with a 409 V8 engine which I reused.

The thing that I thought was real cool about the kit at the time was that it didn't have any trim down the sides of the body of the model. It has really clean lines. And a custom tail light treatment.

The 409 engine was too nice to cover so I left the hood off. It has a unique custom intake system I haven't seen in any other model kit. The entire car is painted Testors Red.

Later, this kit was reissued, being yellow on the box. I don't think you could build this model stock, especially because the rear taillight area has been customized so much and no side trim is included with the kit.

But it makes an awesome custom!
