Should have mentioned this one, too. Its release date is listed as TBA…

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.

 

Yours truly,

Cadillac Curmudgeon

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.
