Not a model car, but it is 1/24 scale. How many of you have seen one of these?  This is the only one I've ever seen.  Note the Pocher connection.

I had that Spinwelder set too.

 

I don't remember those! Can anybody tell me exactly how that welder worked?

Manuel,

 

The spinner gun received a "welding tip" of plastic. The spinning created heat via friction. The welding tip melted into the two pieces to be joined. Put a new tip on when the old one was used up. A single tip would make about a 3" long bead. It was not that hard with a little practice. I think I was 12 or 13 when I built mine.

Turns out the Revell Ford Six Wheeler pickup isn't alone; check this bad boy out!

The engine is supposedly a 350 turbo diesel; would be interesting to crack it open and find out! Unfortunately, this is one of pj-toys' offerings...

When you said "pj-toys" I didn't have to look to know that it's triple didgets. I'm guessing 300-ish

It's amazing how many different kits Revell squeezed out of that Nissan Datsun pickup tooling.

The Boondock is a Race/Rally car. I call them the Desert race or Desert Rally series

Think Baja 500/Baja 1000

The Characters in the car don't look Latino to me so I don't count them in the 'South Of The Border' series

I have 3 from that series including the Buick!

The other 2 are "El Ranchero Grande" 62 Falcon Ranchero 

and 'Tourista Turismo' 62 Galaxie hardtop.

The decal sheet was identical in all of the series. It included all the kit names, generic numbers and different

number boards, ie flamed box/rectangle on the Buick box above.

 

Wish this series could be re-issued!

Or at least the cars in the series. Too many were destroyed

ie 'Mexicali Mudlark' 66 Buick Skylark

 

I do not remember the original tires in my 2 Boondock Bombers being White walls

like in the box art

This 59 Buick could Only be built Stock!!

The Ranchero had Some custom parts.

I do not remember if the Galaxie was 1 or 2 option. Too Long ago, and I am not sure

where the instruction sheet is now!!

 

I think the Thunderbird could be re-issued, and we Did get the Caliente from Model King

a few years ago.

Me Too!!!!

 Wish they had found it when they did the Imperial

 

Here is mine. It started as the Boondock Bommer kit!!!

Windshield frame is now from a Monogram 59 Impala!!

Might use the interior from that too. Just try to modify it to Buick patterns

 

Note the added Electra 225 rocker trim!!
