This is a 1966 Chevy II **1/24 scale MODEL CAR** That I built over 10 years ago and it is still together. It has won many model car contests through Hobby Town and a first place in it's category at the Hot Rod Magazine Model Car Nationals held in Omaha, NE back in 1993. The nationals were sponsored by AMT/Ertl models, Hot Rod magazine, and Championship Auto Shows. It was an honor to win this category with this model. My first big event and I won many places with five models never placing less that third. I actually won the 1/24 scale model car class with another model. This Chevy II has been claimed to be one of the best around and cleanest builds.
This was built from an old Monogram model.
