A nice Hotwheels 1/64 replica (I have a "few" of these)....  there is, however,  A MAJOR FLAW with these HW '63 Caddy Hearses........    Anyone know?  Any Cadillac "experts" out there?

Hmm...... 😏 😏 🤔 🤔

@mrod54 Well...yes, that is true.  But NOT the "major" flaw I was eluding to.  I'll put the answer below.....

The major flaw is that the A-Pillars are NOT "dog legs."  They should have an "S" shape to accommodate a wrap-around windshield (which of course is also not there). Matchbox got it right...of course at far less overall detail and scale accuracy.
