    71-73 Die Cast Models

    Anyone know of good source for 71-73 Die Cast Models? I'd love to have one of those Auto Art Mach 1's but man...$100+ is a chunk of change for a toy car!

      Have not personally use them but perhaps you may try these folks. According to their site, they have the '71s from several different companies.

          I know, I'm probably gonna have to just break down and spring for the autoart! It is nice!

            RE: 71-73 Die Cast Models

            To show her support for my project, my wife bought me one of the Testor's kits a few weeks ago. The kit is really pretty nice - even has plug wires and some correct rims (not Magnum 500s though).

            The bummer is that it looks like it has trunk decals from the '73 model on a '71 body. The 'Mach 1' emblem is offset to the right and embedded in the trunk lid stripe (that's a '73, right?).

            Otherwise, the kit's just fine. I guess I need to build it now.

              RE: 71-73 Die Cast Models - autoart

              The thing that annoys the crap out of me on the autoart Mach1's is they all have an incorrect front bumper. We all know that's okay for a Boss 351 but NOT a Mach1. For that price you would think they would get it right.
