Danbury Mint 1958 Plymouth Fury

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I know! I'm going to be building one of these in the not too distant future! But when I see a nice diecast such as one from Danbury or the Franklin Mint, and it's at a GREAT price--------well, I just can't pass it up!

I got this one from Amy Pristovnik (Harry's daughter) and the funny thing is, I was just taking pictures of this very car at the Chryslers at Carlisle show here in PA. In fact, the pictures I have are THE car that Danbury used to model this one according to the fellow that owned it.

So, here are some pics-----unfortunately, the antenna base on the driver's side had a little mishap, but I fastened it on as best I could. Just the same, it'll be in a case and then in a cabinet away from my three nosy cats. :P

Enjoy!

Gotta love those fins! Reminds me so much of my Dad's '57 that he bought back in '65 when I was a kid. :)

Cool Bill.  I bought one of Harry's builds from Amy.  I'm very honored to have it on my shelf.

Sweet! I got the Christine version at an estate sale many years ago. And it has that same little misalignment on the driver's door trim. They did add the movie car's door lock buttons, at least!

Really Chris? I've never seen the Christine one!

Yeah, I noticed that too, but at least the trim is "straight"------if ya know what I mean. ;)

One nit I do have about the shape of the body is that to my eyes, the very back of the roof seems to sit just a smidge  "high". Of course taking in consideration manufacturing limitations, and how Danbury chose to do the roof section, I think they pulled it off quite well.

Much better than that other one that shall not be named! ;)

Nice photos, Bill!  I see you captured the push button drive in one.  I had a '57 which I drove until it wouldn't start anymore.  :(
