1966 American Coupe TypeC w/Blond Girls Figure by Hasegawa

Recommended Posts

So after ordering the previous issue from the Orient, sans lady, car in yellow plastic, lowrider version, they do this.
Just my luck.
But, what the heck, you should still order it. You get white plastic, a bikini babe resin figure, actual thin whitewalls on... something not quite Cadillac wheels. It is a crude kit that some say has JoHan roots. No engine, very promo like. Crude interior- the dashboard is literally a slab face, the raised edges of the instrumentation pods is represented by a decal, with lines. It (the decal) won't even be visible on a dark interior. You do get window plastic on all four sides- good if you want to try dark tinting. I personally wish it had a bench seat, instead has crude style buckets.

All of the "1966" cars were based on, and then reverse engineered versions of U.S. kits made to be slot car bodies by a long defunct Japanese toy company. Somewhere along the lines the tooling wound up in Hasegawa's vaults about 30-35 years ago, and they decided to tool up some basic universal style chassis and interior bits for them and sell them as complete models.

When I put this on a shelf at the top of the room, you'll never even know if it has an interior at all...  not sure if I even care about the figure.  Wonder how much the figure will increase the price?  I'll wait for someone to open it before buying, then decide.

I'd be interested in this... the '66 Coupe DeVille is my favourite Cadillac and I've got a friend who has two of them for reference.

The resin figure raises the price $3.

I'm thinking of a joke here, but it's beyond inappropriate for a family site like this🤐😇😅
