"OK kit with different optional parts"
kshoopman (Chiefs Kingdom)
Lots of flash will need to be trimmed on this kit. Glass is rather thick and distorted. I too had a hard time getting the tail lights to fit in the rear body panel. I will say though the interior is pretty well detailed but has some very large sink marks on the floorboard(4). This Corvette won't be front and center in my display case, which could just be due to my modeling skills.

"63 Vette"
daveLRcarlvr (Little Rock)
A quality kit makes a quality build, this kit lacks quality. Lots of flash and fit/alignment issues. It lacks detail, the chassis has the suspension and exhaust molded in, also the seats are molded into the interior bucket. They use old style metal axles for the wheels. No decals for detail. Plan on sanding/filing almost every part. Check fit before painting. OK kit for beginner to develop skills. An advanced modeler may be disappointed. Some positives, the chrome is very good, shiny and doesn't scratch easily and lots of it. There are 2 engine blocks and 5 engine build options, you can build 2 complete engines. I'm building the 327 with fuel injection. After all it's a 63 Stingray! A beautiful car, get the body paint right and it will be a nice model, just don't look close for detail.

I love this kit this kit is a lot of fun to build I love old cars so this is great for my collection this kit has a lot of cool ways you can customize it I want to add another one to my stash as this one looks so good PROS: cheap, fun to build, looks good, highly detailed, features a nice engine CONS: minor flash if you are thinking of picking up this kit then get it, it is a great kit for any old car collector and you will have many ways you can build this if I was going to give it a rating I would give it 10 out of 10 stars I am using this kit for a diorama I have about the first ever car show I went to my mom took a lot of pictures of the cars there so I build cars based on what was at the show and the beginning of my car addiction!

 
"Kit Full of Greatness"

I’m already a fan of the 63 Stingray, and this vintage kit didn’t disappoint. After building so many AMT kits, I realize many of them are made on vintage kit molds. Sometimes that leads to extra flashing. An experienced model builder can focus on great prep work and create a masterpiece. I’m glad these vintage molds are still around. To my surprise this vintage kit didn’t have a lot of flashing. What the kit did offer was a 3 in 1 build with three options for engines, including the extra hoods to support the desired choice. I was able to have an extra engine to build for another model or even a diorama. The extras didn’t stop there. The kit also included two sets of wheels, including a set of racing slicks for the rear. Even though there weren’t a lot of Corvette badges as decals, the detailed badges on the body were raised high enough for painting. Using dry brushing the Corvette badging on the front, sides, and rear turned out amazing. The same goes for the detailed gages and interior. I added gage decals I ordered from Hobbylinc that really brought the dash to life. This has turned out to be one of my favorite kits from AMT.
