Bought this direct several years ago; DM only made one version in black, and a variation in blue with dual carbs.  Lots of working features, lights, fabric convertible top, roll up door windows, hardtop, nicely detailed interior, engine compartment and chassis, I can't image what this would cost if it was possible to produce something this quality these days.

As far as photo uploads go, Don't know how 'driving her mad' can upload so many--I'm limited to 49.65 K ?  I figured out if I use More Reply Options I can add additional photos, a cumbersome way to get it done?

Additional pics:

Chassis

Interior closeup

with hardtop on

Chassis ID plate

Chassis serial number plate

Fuel injected 283 V8

We don't upload photos into the forum anymore, most of us use a image hosting website such as Flickr. See here: https://www.diecastx...occasion14:' />

Amazing work of Art, love the detail on this Beauty. As for photos, i use Flickr and over the years i have worked out i can get around 74 photos on here Max before it starts going funny and not all goes on after that. I pay the premium on Flickr so unlimited photos are saved on there. Glad to see another 1/12 model being shown, i thought i was the only one collecting them LOL. :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :drool5: :drool5: :drool5: :drool5: :drool5: :yahoo: :occasion14: :danke:

Thanks for the compliments and the Flickr suggestion; I'll look into it. I have a decent size 1/12 collection, as well as other sales , the addiction runs deep.
