Just arrived in our warehouses this week, we have four new items from Franklin Mint, ready to ship out to you now! Franklin Mint manufactures high quality, precision engineered, die-cast cars. These that we just got in are no exception. Below are my personal favorites:
Item# B11F859 - 1/24 Scale
1957 Chevrolet El Dorado Brougham LE
Originally released in 1957 for the astonishing price of $13,000.00, the formidable 1957 Cadillac® Eldorado™ Brougham came with standard features like cruise control, fully electric windows and door locks, automatic starter, air conditioning and automatic adjustable memory seats. Designed after the Park Avenue and Orleans Motorama show cars, just 400 cars were ordered and hand built to owner specifications. The epitome of luxury even by today's standards, the 1957 Cadillac® Eldorado™ Brougham is available in a Limited Edition of only 1,500 pieces worldwide.
Item# S11E932 - 1/24 Scale
1965 Corvette Sting Ray Fiberglass Coupe
Just when Corvette® lovers thought things could not get any better, along came the '65 Sting Ray™. Out were the hood vents of earlier models. In were three functioning front-fender louvers for increased airflow. Gone were the rear drum brakes of previous years, replaced by the smoother, easier four-wheel disc variety.
But the most significant change of all...the introduction of the thoroughly awesome 396 Turbo Jet engine — first of the factory built Big Blocks to power a Corvette® — equally at home on the track as on the street, to the degree that many who owned one drove their pride-and-joy "a quarter mile at a time!"
Just like the actual auto, this sensational model features a body of real fiberglass, hand-painted in Silver Pearl. With limited production numbers of just 1,965 models worldwide, only a very fortunate few can own the real deal!
