It’s officially Friday and we’re finishing out our week with one more quick look at the 1969 Pontiac Firebird coming straight out of our 1/24th scale Maisto Design: Classic Muscle series! This die-cast model comes from an era where muscle was king, with custom Orange and Black paint, custom wheels, and performance upgrades to set itself apart from its stock counterpart! Utilizing a set of opening doors as well as an opening engine compartment, you can scope out all of this vehicle’s inner details and finishing touches from behind the dash to the engine itself! In order to find it or any of our other Classic Muscle models at your local retailer, be sure to keep an eye out for our special Maisto Design packaging color-coded Green and labeled MUSCLE!
On April 1, people laughed when we claimed to have purchased HUMMER. According to this post today on
maybe we should have set our sights on Pontiac.
July 4 is Independence Day in the good ol’ U. S. of A. so here’s a shot of some 1:64 Maisto ProRodz die-cast cars from the three big American manufacturers. At the left is a 1967 Ford Mustang GT, in the middle is a 1941 Willys (later to be owned by Chrysler) and on the right is a 1969 Pontiac Firebird.
Although most die-cast collectors display their models right out of the box, there are a few who make some modifications. Often, it’s just the addition of some detail painting or swapping of wheels and tires. Still, there are some who make more signficant mods. Here’s one I built a few years ago. It’s a 1:18 scale Maisto 1965 Pontiac GTO. The wheel openings were moved forward like on a ’60s A/FX funny car and the suspension, seats, wheels and tires are from the Maisto Chevrolet SSR Concept. Send us photos of your modded Maisto die-casts of any scale and we might post them.
