The “California Kid” 1-24th scale diecast from The Danbury Mint

The “California Kid”

1-24th scale diecast from

“Pete & Jakes” Hot Rod Parts

and

The Danbury Mint

Super cool diecast

Best of the best

Truley a remarkable job right down to the louvers and “flames”, that look “buried a foot deep” in VERY glossy clear over deep black paint. The “Flame Job” is NOT your typical “decal look” 

THIS IS THE REAL DEAL “Flame Job”

DETAIL, DETAIL, DETAIL….To the chrome hood latches, chrome door latches, chrome front bumper horns

Opening hood, opening trunk which is a “finished off” trunk, with a “leather look”

Opening “Suicide doors” (that even latch shut!!)

Interior is so authentic, flexable realistic seats, detailed gauges, operating steering wheel

From the license plates front and rear, to the tear drop “blue dot” tailights

Even AUTHENTIC pinstripping is VERY DETAILED

The 302 motor is SO DETAILED it looks as if it could drive away!

Air cleaner has pleated texure to it, chrome valve covers, accurately wired distributor to the plugs

Overflow radiator bottle, radiator hoses, heater hoses chromed oil pan, headers, transmisson

Suspension is even cooler than cool….chromed suspension parts, exhaust as accurate as the original car.

Even the tires – wheels have that NOT BRAND NEW shine, they look like they are RIGHT OFF of the gravel shoulder-road from the movie chase scenes !!!

To The Danbury Mint….Damm NICE JOB…Wow!!!
