Real. That would be a beautiful body style to convert an Entex '37 Packard into. I had to save and order the new Danbury Mint diecast of this body styled Packard, and it came last week. Wow. This is one of my top ten favorite automobiles.

That's exactly what I was hoping... that some of you would think it was the new Danbury model. I just got mine, and it's amazing!

It is...I made one simple modification to mine. I guess some of the earlier production runs have incorrect width on the whitewalls. They painted the inner part blue. I popped them out w/ a blade, scraped the blue paint off, sanded and repainted white. Big improvement. Here's the thread from the Diecast Ramblings board that made me do it:

I also have to admit I had seen a picture of the car you posted in an auction report article a while ago. I think it sold for a bit over $200k. I remember drooling over it and thinking that if I only had the money...well, one can dream, no?

Yeah, mine has the incorrect narrow WWs too. I think I'll give that fix a try.
