Mini Muscle, Max Detail
1:64 | $6
Contrary to popular assumption, the importance of presentation does not diminish with size. This is a principle that the folks at Castline clearly understand, and take full advantage of with their line of 1:64-scale Detroit-Muscle M2 Machines. Given that each comes with a molded diamond plate base (with a stenciled plaque identifying the car and its release number) that mates with an acrylic dust cover to form a classy display case, these cars have already set the tone as something special even before you consider the car itself. And when you do, you will recognize the handiwork of true muscle car enthusiasts—they choose the right cars and they pay attention to details! The ’66 Corvette comes as either a 327ci small-block or a 427 with side pipes. Ford fans will admire the ’68 Mercury Cougar duo, which are differentiated by wheels, interior color, vinyl versus tin top, and even distinctive engine inserts to represent both a 302 and a 390. Drag race fans will get a kick out of the ’69 Nickey Chevrolet 427 Camaros — there’s a road-going version, but the star is a COPO strip warrior with sponsor billboards on the doors and a set of drag tires mounted on steel rims out back!
