Same here, I have two "Bubble Tops" in a 1/25 scale in Plastic that I haven't gotten around to built yet both are Bel-Airs....:thumbsup:Full-size Chevies from the Sixties are synonymous with style. The '62 Bel Air bubble-top is one of my all-time favorite castings.
My step-father had one years back, and it where I learned to fix cars too from that 63 Four-door impala.....:thumbsup:I have to agree with that statement!:thumbsup: First, drivable, car I ever bought was a one owner '63 Impala hardtop. One of these days, I WILL have a '61 bubble top! Tastefully Kustomized, of course.
Hey Buddy!!!....I had the a Green 63 Impala last year and to me it wasn't near to what I know of them, and It was traded off for that 64 that you see now....it not as perfect but to me it fit the bill....:thumbsup:You think Hot Wheels will ever make a '63? Or was there not enough distinction between that and the '64 to make it matter.
WOW!....a original 409 would make me go nuts right now....:thumbsup:I think the only one of those years I have is the JL 61 Impala SS chrome. I owned a 63 Imp convertible 283 back in the day. I lived in Ohio and that thing was like a tank in the snow. My favorite of the 61/64 is the 62 SS red/red 327 or 409.
Hot Wheels has yet to do a '62 Impala. And I suspect that with the '62 Bel Air Bubbletop casting, some bean-counter or other corporate type would think a '62 Impala a bit redundant. Still, it would be nice...I'm thinking a '60s Impala premium 5-car set!But I can't seem to find a '62 now :lol:
Now we're Talkin!!!....Starting with the First Impala: 1958 Then a 1960 Impala....If I had it my way my set would start from 1958-70....:thumbsup:Hot Wheels has yet to do a '62 Impala.
