This build is pretty cool because my friend bought this car 35 years ago and it has basically been in storage for the entire time. He believed that it was a clone car when he bought it. With the introduction of the internet he found out recently that it is a real Z28. He has been busy restoring it and got it on the road this fall.
I did this build for him as a gift for his hard work. The build started as the AMT Z28 kit. Most parts were molded in orange plastic. The wheels were molded in the orange plastic also. They may have been the most difficult thing to detail. Fitment was an issue throughout. Many, many parts had to be modified to even fit properly.
The build took about three months with my busy delivery schedule and domestic duties. The tires did not come from the kit. I bought aftermarket tires that would have originally come on the car. The ignition wires are yellow since he has Accel Yellow Jacket wires on the car right now.
