Great idea you had replicating the toy with the model. Nicely done! The black does make the wheels look like they have spinners. In fact though, the wheels are Salt flats and Matchbox uses them on alot of castings. I painted mine silver, you can see the design clearer. I replicated my real car with the toy. I picked up a few more, these are my favorite cars. Thanks for sharing, nice job...

I dig it Michelle. 👍👍👍

Leave off the white hood stripes and add a set of Magnum 500 wheels with white letter tires and it'd be a replica of my old Nova.

Thanks for posting the info on these wheels, I'll also have to keep it in mind for future Matchbox-themed builds. Last time I had to go the full custom route, since this is what the little diecasts were wearing back in the early 1980s 😉
