By ‘73 the Bel Air was Chevrolet’s base model having slid from the top trim level for ‘57. Caprice was now top of the food chain. Premium X issued a nice ‘73 Bel Air.

Actusl car pictured had added wire wheels and side molding. Premium X had the correct base wheels.

David, based on the taillights, I think the 1:1 you pictured is an Impala.

Here's my 1/43 '73 Bel Air:

20200615 214219
20200615 214236

 

Somehow I ended up with 2 of them so if anyone's interested in one, let's make a deal!

Moe Parr, you have a sharp eye! I believe you are correct. The 1:1 must be an Impala

It's a nice model. I have three of these in my collection. My standard sedan is in a lighter green. I also have police & taxicab versions.

Not sure who made these,  maybe the four door hardtop is a conversion of mine.   The blue one is a James Bond car, Live and Let Die.  They all seem to have the right tail light set up.
