I have a 67 in 1:1 scale. You did a heck of a job on that model. The litany of stuff wrong with that kit reads like biblical proverbs.
-The front buckets are wrong. Don't know what the hell they are.
-The interior console is wrong. It's a 66 GTO console. 67s had wood-grain inserts on the 1966 Chrome finned insert. Go figure. If I could have ordered a 67 with a 66 console, they're identical except for the wood grain. So that particular thing didn't break my heart too much.
-The dash had the same wood-grain around the instruments
-At least on my kit, the rear-wheel-wells are see-through like Tamiya Sherman tank sponsons
-They DID at least get the rocker panel chrome right
-The hood in my kit didn't fit very well. It's passable, but only just so.
-Big sink marks over the mounting posts on the trunk lid
-Big sink marks over the headlights on the fenders
-The rear "PONTIAC" logo is wrong. GTOs didn't have them-the LeMans and LeMans Sprint had them.
-Can't remember if the Arrowhead is molded on the hood or not. The GTOs (and Lemans) had a Pontiac arrow-head on the hood.
-I think the rear-end squats too much, but that's a nitpick.
