Th Cadillacs, especially the '55 and the Buicks are simply amazing... I would go back and forth about making the investment on a few  when the usual flyers would show up in the mail ( I only have the 300C convertible) and regret not getting the '55 and '48 (?) Buick. I seem to recall a '57 New Yorker as well, identical to a 1:1 a friend owned, down to the color. Time to look in the secondary market...

Has anyone purchased the DM '48 Ford in cream color?  There are a TON of them on eBay, all originating from China.  What's up with that?

DM models were manufactured in China.

 

The story is that the Chinese government seized DM's assets, including tooling. That's the story, at least... I can't confirm it. But if that is what actually happened, then it makes sense that "DM" models are now appearing on eBay from Chinese sellers.

As for the '48 Ford in the cream color, there must be an "overstock."

Ok, what am I missing here?  I like the 48 Ford so I went to ebay and found only a few, none from China and all in the $200.00 range.

The Buicks and the Boss 429 Mustangs are my favorite.
