2002 Chevrolet Cavalier.

Domestic American compact cars from the 21st Century are hard to find in 1/43 scale.

This one was produced by a company that I had not heard of before called 'X-Concepts,LLC' in 2003.

They made several well detailed models with opening features but mostly Japanese cars.

I also never heard of X-Concepts. I assume it is diecast. How would you compare its level of detail to present day models?

It is diecast with a plastic base. Metal is quite thin but dimensions look accurate. I bought a dozen or so of this company's models, mainly Japanese cars for just under $10 each which seemed good value. The shut lines are very good and several have opening doors, trunk and engine compartment. I can show some of the others over the next few days if they are of interest.

Interesting model that fills a gap but who chose that insipid color?

If you have any other American cars or Japanese sports cars, I would be interested.

Hi John,

That was an actual and popular colour in 2002 for the Cavalier. It was called alpine green metallic.

These X Concepts items seem to also be known as Modifiers and come in a bubble pack with alternative wheels you can fit.   I see  a Ford Focus,  Honda,  and Escalade among others.   I believe I have some of these which have been out for a while.

What a cool idea - can't believe I missed them when they came out! I wonder if they made 'unModifiers' as well? https://www.hobbydb.com/marketplaces/hobbydb/subjects/x-concepts-brand

Here is what the X Concept Modifiers packaging looked like. Found this on eBay along with a few 1/43 cars. A few cars listed on eBay in the $100 plus range. Crazy!

I'll Post three Honda 'X-Concepts,LLC' models this afternoon in a separate post. All are not in Modifiers packaging and were purchased by me as vehicles, unboxed, about 15 years ago.

X-Concepts was the company and their model car range were branded under Modifiers. Modifiers were available in 1:43rd and 1:64th scales. Earlier 1:43rd Modifiers were packaged in a larger blister pack. In the later series the dimension of the over all blister pack size was reduced considerably. I bought a few when they were current and managed to pick up a couple of 1:64th scale versions when they were greatly reduced price wise.

I remember the Modifiers being sold at Target. I bought one, the '97 Honda Del Sol. I left it as-displayed in the plastic package (though I did open it) but still have all the accessory bits, screws, etc.

I also remember seeing the modifies at Target. At the time I had the Mitsubishi Eclipse, Honda Accord Coupe, and a 1999-ish Mustang.
