The 2 friends are the Conquest 1941 Plymouth wagon and the Motor City 1941 Plymouth coupe.

I really like the shape of the '41 Plymouth, so these are some of my favorite white metal models.

Indeed this is the first time I've seen the convertible.

Excellent trio. That Durham 1941 Plymouth convertible is a favourite.

I'm with Michel that this is first time I have seen the convertible. I have the coupe and station wagon.

And here is the bright red version,  a replica of a family car from the 1940s.   Be very careful of the windscreen frame on these Durhams,  mine arrived bend down but I was able to salvage it.

Some quick snapshots of the top-up version

ply3

ply6

purchased from a German dealer some time ago. I think there is some extra detail added - scraped trim and trunk lid emblem

and unfortunately also headlights painted white.

The number on the chassis says "83", but not how many top-ups were released.

BTW the base plate seems to be plastic, while the one of the NC Highway Patrol version feels like metal...

The '41 Plymouth models are all great. I have been fortunate to add a couple to my collection. I have that black convertible, as well as a closed version in ivory. A red coupe and the rust-colored wagon. I'd love a 4dr too if someone would make it.

Being terminally frugal and not likely to ever find a Conquest '41 Plymouth wagon, I built one of my own.   Now I really should think about a sedan.
