Franklin Mint / 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Sport Coupe / Gold 50 Millionth GM Ltd. Ed. 9,900 / FM Discontinued / 1:24th Scale
Gold w/ Wood Base
In November of 1954, when GM wanted to commemorate the 50 millionth car to come off their assembly line, they chose "The Hot One," a '55 Chevy Bel Air Sport Coupe. It was done in gold paint, with 716(!) pieces of gold-plated brightwork-bumpers and all. Today, according to a Special Interest Autos August 1991 article, the car surprisingly passed into private hands. The owner wished to remain anonymous until the car was fully restored. Ironically, the 25 millionth, 1940 Chevy resides in the GM Special Services warehouse. This precision Franklin Mint model features opening doors, hood, trunk with detailed engine compartment and interior.
