Corgi's Chevrolet Impala is one of it's popular models.  This is the sedan version as it was also done as a State Patrol car.  Corgi had to alter the way it sprayed these models to allow the part under the fins to receive the paint.  Like with all these diecast models there are a few standard variations that make good projects.  The sedan came with a windscreen and interior standard from the factory so the modifications became easier than some of the early  Dinky conversions.  The wheels were a bit skinny for some of the conversions and as usual were altered.

Corgi Chevrolet Impala - Batmobile.

Created from a Corgi Impala and using after market batmobile parts. The rear wings were added for effect. While Corgi already has a bat mobile it was satisfying to create a unique version. The Impala lent itself ideally for such a project. It took a bit of fabricating but it turned out okay.
