Charlie Magers' replica of his own 1969
(click the image to go back)
Charlie employed a very effective technique with his
Chevelle model; he used an AMT/ERTL Olds 442 chassis.
Doing so not only replaces the Chevelle kit's less than
interesting chassis with one that's nicely detailed, it
provides poseable steering as well. Added details include
a fuel line, aluminum tail pipe extensions, and valve
stems. Although hard to see in this shot, Charlie re-shaped
the kit's taillights for improved accuracy. Though the
interior is basically stock, Charlie did add a column-mounted
tach, turn signal stalk, and flocking on the floor.
