Brooklin 1957 Chevrolet two door hardtop
I just noticed the Brooklin 2020 Collectors Release, 1957 Chevrolet model 210 two door hardtop, is available from Diecast Direct. I was surprised to see it there this early.
I have a question for any of you who might be knowledgeable about future Brooklin releases. Do you know of any plans to produce a 1957 Belair two door hardtop?
There is a very strong rumor going around to that effect. I doubt Brooklin would waste this popular body style now that they have it in hand. It's a definite winner IMHO.
Those BCC '57 Chevies were only available through the club and were sold out. The one listed at Diecast Direct must have come from one of the club members. Or, perhaps, someone at Diecast Direct belongs to the club. The 2 door version of the '57 Bel Air is not on the list of models to be produced this year but we can hope.
I got the 210 2drht in 2-tone green....I love it!
The Chevrolet 210 as well as all of Brooklin's other '57 Bel Air models are all really nice. I am pleased to have them in my collection.
Jack, John K, and John M; thanks for your comments.
Route 66 Models is showing one available, too.
Mine's on the way.
@parisi50 Curtis, I agree the Hawthorne green is not 100% but IMO it's very close. I had a 57 Chevy 210 in this color coincidentally. I will say that this paint on the Brooklin really responds and changes relative to different light. In my display case the color displays nearly perfect, so I am very pleased! I love this model. I am considering trying blackwall tires on it as most 210s I ever saw were equipped this way.
@jack-dodds I think blackwalls would look great on the model. Bye the way the color is Highland Green not Hawthorne Green.
It showed up in a mailer. I'm confident it's gone by now.
@mingmong68 John S; by any chance do you know which other Brooklin model done with blackwall tires would be the matching size to my 57 Chevy 210? I want to ask Amanda for some when she is "back in business".
