Lindberg Grand Am

Recommended Posts

Here's a quick look. Before and after of Lindberg's old 1/32 Pontiac Grand Am. A snap kit of only fair detail. The body and exterior trim are okay. The chassis and especially the interior leave a lot to be desired. Despite being a snap kit, I did use glue. But, no paint. This is what you get straight out of the box.

I never had any idea anyone brought out a '73. I owned one of these back in the '80's & have wanted to build a copy for years. Would prefer a detailed 1/25 but I'll be happy with a 1/32 just to have a model of one.

It's actually a '74 or a '75.  The '73s had a different grill along with a different trunk lid, taillights, and rear bumper.

Would love to see these make a comeback . Not my favoured scale , but...  

What's the status of the JoHan Oldsmobile Cutlass (Colonnade body --- 1975 ?) ? Yes , I realise that these 1/32 scale Grand Prix , etc. , are Lindberg .
