Can anyone speak to the quality of the Highway 61 Ford Model A roadsters? Are they comparable with the GMP/Acme '32 Ford Highbody roadsters?

I'm especially interested in the Harley-Davidson Rat Rod model.

They're cheaper than the GMP/Acme models which are similar, but if they're around the same quality then it might be worth picking one up.

they are very good models, but not as good as the Acme. you will not be disappointed, plus the Highway 61's can be found pretty cheap.

for me are better the old hot rod of gmp (salt flats roadster,socal coupe,pierson brother)

the crossbowsof the suspension are made by metal and are  functional

here you can see one of the best GMP

Thanks for the pics and opinion, ws6_22! The so-cal coupe looks great! They're a little pricey on at the moment though.

I think Harley version is unique. Highly recommend this Hot Wheels 61  one. GMP cooling is great however, theme "Harley Davidson" is awesome.
