Hello everybody  :rolleyes: The last add to my collection is a 1970 Plymouth Gator Grain GTX. Mine is the 339th of 1.250, like all the GMPs the first thing about the model is the weight, this is a real metal body, I like the heavy feel when I hold it. There are lots of details such as windows that can be rolled up and down, a good suspension, opening glove box, opening fuel tank, moving shift knob, appropriate proportions and the list can go on...I hope you like the pictures, here you are  :rolleyes:

The fold down plate in the back is a great feature. It is a good looking model, but the vinyl roof looks weird. I would prefer just all black. I am a fan of vinyl tops on muscle cars.

What a wonderfully detailed model. The car has so much presence. I need one of these soon now!

This is one of the greatest models made by GMP. Solid, very detailed, excellent finish, great value. Congrats!
