Another GIM Caddy…and a wagon!
Should have mentioned this one, too. Its release date is listed as TBA…
1972 Cadillac deVille ASC Wagon Dean Martin
Anyone know anything about the real car?
That looks bad from all perspectives. It needs a lot of work to make it a decent model, IMHO.
A poor model of a poorly made original. How appropriate.
Pretty cool ! Not only a Cadillac station wagon, but a Dean Martin connection, too.
Dubious on the Martin connection on the 1972.
However, Dean Martin's 1976 Castilion Fleetwood Estate Wagon was recently sold for $69,900. This car has the chrome basket-handle, and a halo vinyl roof. Eleven of these were built by Traditional Coachworks of Los Angeles. Sammy Davis also owned one.
Now, if a 1:43 manufacturer wants to properly build one of these, they will have a hit.
The photo below is of Presley's 1972, one of two built by ASC, the other owned by Dean Martin. I'm no longer dubious. 😀
Ridiculous. Give Cadillac collectors an early 60s Fleetwood/ 60 Special, or better still any sort of the distinctive 1961 Cadillacs of which exactly zero have ever appeared in our scale.
Then go ahead and produce the goofballs. Harrr-umph.
I remember seeing 1:1 Caddy wagons in the Hanley-Dawson showroom in Chicago's near northside (when we'd go to Pizzaria Due). Don't know if they were this coachbuilder though.
