It is interesting to watch this car with the John Wick films the connection of romantic soul Keanu Reeves and American bulldog Chevelle SS. I also have tears in my eyes when I see in movies destroying gems as the Chevrolet SS is, without a doubt. I don’t have to talk about the history of the Chevrolet Chevelle SS from 1970. Many people know this car with the John Wick films. But I have one point of interest. In 1970, the Buick Skylark GSX was manufactured, which had many features in common with the Chevelle SS 396. In particular, the roof and some vehicle lines. To drive the beast 396 served the Big Block V8 with a volume of 6.5 liters. For us Europeans, this is the astronomical engine capacity. I wouldn’t feed it.
In 1/64 scale you can do the miracles. No wonder. Greenlight is one of those who can produce collectible gems even on this small scale. The first thing which interested me, was the paint. Metallic green with white race stripes perfectly match the chrome discs.
A beauty mistake on my models is a damaged front brand. It had to be damaged during production. When you open the front hood, you can see the beautiful Big Block V8 in orange. The view of the interior is a feast for the eyes. Beautifully successful steering wheel dominates the interior. But the seats and dashboard in the color of the vehicle are not lagging behind either.
The chassis is entirely metal. Many details will delight all collectors. Unfortunately, the model is no longer produced. Beautiful rubber tires on chrome wheels, as I wrote, fit perfectly with the design. This effect is enhanced by nice fender flanges.
In conclusion, I have to say one thing. The model has errors. It also has shortcomings due to production. But it does not change the fact that it is an amazing model. If you have the opportunity to buy this model. Do not hesitate.
