(Pics) 1938 Buick convertible coupe
Here is a black version of Signature's 1/18 edition of the superb Buick coupe for 1938. It has some great looks and detail and although perhaps the tires are a bit too thin on this one, it's really a fantastic-looking 1930's car and has Signature's excellent details and subject choice.
Yeah, not bad. I can't recall exactly who but years ago someone here raised the height on this Buick; it looked better with the proper stance.
As is, it sits a bit low but still a decent model.....love that there's top options (the boot is included ).
Looks good Mike.
Geez! How were those massive "driving lights" ever street legal? 🙄 🙄
Thanks ! Back then, such giant lights probably were legal, at least in some states, lol ! I think Woodlights (?) were put on some cars. They look cool although I am not sure what type of illumination they provided.
When four headlights were becoming more typical for new cars in the later 1950's, I had heard some four headlight cars had an extra switch to turn them on for a time and before that, some cars like the 1957 Plymouth supposedly had a front aspect/grille that kind of appeared to be a four headlight front.
A 1957 Dodge would make a fine 1/18 diecast model. There are also some very cool commercials for Dodge from back then on YouTube. Their long time announcer was the very professional and smooth-voiced Lou Crosby, who also had an actress daughter, I believe.
