GreenLight - 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Convertible



For the whole month of November 2013, I was quite busy studying for the "Japanese Language Proficiency Test" which take place on December 1, 2013 and now that its done and gone, I have more free time for Shewsbury Land.


I took the very bottom basic level of N5 and for me personally the exam itself is quite though, I'm not sure if I can pass, if I'm lucky maybe I will pass and I hope I can pass, otherwise, it's OK, I can try again next year.

Nonetheless, what a way to start December 2013, this item from my friend in Colombia (http://chrismandesign.blogspot.com/) suddenly arrived yesterday and now it's time for the review;

It's the wonderful  "1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Convertible" produced by "Green Light' and so far this is my first car every from this wonderful brand. 

The packaging;




Out of the packaging, you will get the car and a very nice bonus, some sort of machinery tools or items for the car workshop;




First and foremost, let's have a look at the car - 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Convertible;




My first impression is extremely positive, I like the beautiful design and the red color is an added bonus (at least for me).



The wheels design is very good and I love that extra detailing on the tires;



The interior detailing is pretty impressive for a die cast car model at this size, I think it's quite beautiful and I like it a lot;




Another wonderful thing about this car model is that it comes with openable engine hood so that you can peep at the engine bay a little and I love this so much;



And now, that machinery tools or items for the workshop which is included in the packaging - this is something new for me - I never get such "free gifts" from Hot Wheels, Maisto, Matchbox or Takara Tomy Tomica;




I don't know what is the name of or purpose of this machinery tools in real life but for sure it looks pretty nice and cool, I like it.



Luckily for poor collector like me, I happen to have this Tomica Tomytech Diorama set and thus I think I can just put this tools into the workshop there;



This is the workshop section, I'm sure we can find a little room to put that new tools;




This is underneath the chasis of the car model;



Overall, there is no secret that I love this item so much. It is a wonderful gift from my fellow blogger and collector friend from far far away in South America and that in it self make it even more special. The painting job finishing quality is very good, the exterior and interior detailing is sublime and all those extras that comes with it is just superbly great. A very well done die cast car model by Green Light - brilliant, absolutely brilliant!!!




Side by side comparison with "1965 Chevrolet Impala SS" at around the same scale and size produced by "Johnny Lightning";


It's up to you to decide and judge which one you think better than the other or which one you prefer more over the other....




With the rest of our classic muscle cars from Johnny Lightning;



Being a poor farmer, I don't really have many in my collections, these are half of them so far for this year.

  1. i’m really glad that this precious item has filled your expectations !!... but it took quite more time than i expected into arrive !!!... as you can see, this brand is geared to collectors and hence it’s quality is really good... i just loved all these features (specially the chassis painted in lead color, which is not standard for Greenlight models) and i hoped you would like it... fortunately, i was right =)... compared with the Impala this Chevelle seems in the same scale, but while the actual Impala has a bit more than 5 m, the actual Chevelle has a bit less than 2 m !!!... by the way, the car shop tool included with this model, is an engine rotisserie stand, which basically lets you hold the engine (with the sort of "spider" in the upper arm of the tool) and rotate it for inspection... i guess it will be a great partner for your growing collection !!!... =)
