Off the Bench #3 - 67 Impala

Here is my 67 Impala that I just finished a few days ago... This is a special kit as it is the first kit that I bought after Franna and I got together... I have been working on this kit off and on for over eight years. It has been built in a couple of different configurations and this is the third color that it has been. Hard to tell in the photos, but it has nearly every hose and wire on the engine. This is also the first time I have ever scratch-built the linkage for the carburetor including the tiny little return spring that I hand wrapped. I'll try and get a better photo of it. All of these photos will "biggify" if you click on them. This might turn into part of a diorama in the future as I have future plans to make a 67 Impala drag car with a trailer... Need something to pull the trailer :)
Enjoy !!!
So, without further ado, here are the photos:
