It’s been a while since we’ve shown some of the things hiding in our deep, dark closet of prototypes and one-of-a-kind new product ideas. Several years ago, Brad (aka skidkid) built this donk from a Maisto 1:18 1972 Chevelle convertible. He installed wheels from one of our R/C cars and custom made the suspension and Lambo-style double-hinged doors. For extra bling he added monitors and speakers and he made decals for the upholstery pattern. At the time, Maisto made a line of 3″ East Coast Ryders cars in this style but we didn’t expand the idea into the larger scales…but we were ready in case the need arose.
Last week we showed you the tooling model. Here are the pre-production samples. It will be a while before these appear in stores. The stock number for both colors is 31357. Colors are yellow and metallic grey.
We’ve added a blower to our 1:24 ’66 Chevelle Pro Rodz to make this Pro Street version. This tooling model shows how mean it looks.
sometimes we get so caught up with posting about 1:64 scale die-cast releases and the latest news, that we forget about other cool releases like our awesome 1:24 scale Pro Rodz. you can never go wrong with that good ol’ American muscle! if you haven’t found any of these yet, keep your eyes peeled, because they’re out there! here’s a little picture show for all you muscle car fiends…
Let us know what you think! We’d love to hear your comments!
