1/25 AMT CHEVROLET CHEVELLE SS396

An old build from circa 1993, model is from an AMT kit with added details I built around 20 years ago.

Model inspired by the Bruce Springsteen song ‘Racing in the Street’ from the album ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’.

Darkness on the Edge of Town

I got a sixty-nine Chevy with a 396
Fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor

She’s waiting tonight down in the parking lot
Outside the Seven-Eleven store

Me and my partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch

And he rides with me from town to town

We only run for the money, got no strings attached
We shut ’em up and than we shut ’em down

The lyrics refer a specification of a 1969 model car with a 396-cubic-inch Chevrolet big-block engine, fuel injection and Hurst Performance transmission.
