2010 DM Preview Society LE is the 1956 Chrysler 300B in Red. Holy cow!

Thursday, 26 August 2010 13:58 by Peter

 

Exclusively sold to Preview Society members by the Danbury Mint, this limited edition of 1,000 pieces is sure to be a hit. The original in black got short shrift due to some inaccuracies. That was unfortunate, because only the experts could really see that anything was off, yet it made many folks shy away, only to regret it when the model was pulled prematurely--not reordered, presumably because of the initial response. Well now everyone who regretted missing that one is lining up for the repaint in red, and to be honest, this is my favorite color (it only came in black, red, and white). Preview Society members may order a maximum of two copies, and everyone else will have to go fishing in the secondary market. I'm sure glad I'm a member!

Danbury Mint 1955 Ford Crown Victoria 55th Anniversary Edition

Thursday, 12 August 2010 12:35 by Peter
 Another repaint, but with a few changes to keep things interesting. The "glass" roof has been removed, so this is DM's first Crown Vic that isn't a Skyliner version. The Buckskin Brown paint is more of a medium to dark tan, and the coordiated interior is quite nicely done. Available now for $129 plus S&H from the Danbury Mint.
