Danbury Mint / 1969 Pontiac Firebird 400 Hardtop / Classic Pontiac Collection / 1:24th Scale
Champagne Metallic w/ dark green interior
Scale 1:24; 8" in length.
In Champagne Metallic, the car is bright and appears to have a clearcoat finish, it is that glossy. The addition of redline tires really sets the model off well. The tread patterns are authentic as well. The doors are hung on realistic hidden hinges. The hood has those magnificent scissors hinges, a work of art in their own right. And the trunk has slim semi-circular hinges that are scaled just right and look so much more realistic than the clunky ones we’ve been accustomed to from the old days. This little number has that trick tach on the hood. You can squint and actually read the RPM dial. The twin scoops on the hood were a great styling exercise but non-functional for the 400 model. But underneath was a strong 400 cubic inch mill pumping out 330 horsepower at 4800 RPM’s. DM did a great job of detailing the engine and surrounding area. The plug wires are held by photo-etch metal looms. Heater hoses, batter cables and tubing were all placed in their proper places. The hood closes on a tiny spring simulating the front latching point.
The Firebird emblems and ‘400’ are metal three dimensional units. The antenna, in the rear on this model Firebird, is functional. The rear license plate flips down to reveal the gas cap. Inside the trunk you will find the correct patterned floor mat, spare and jacking tools. In the dark green interior, the sun visors fold down from their nearly hidden position against the roof. The seats fold forward. The belts are fabric with chromed buckles. The dash and foot pedals are fashioned well and the center console opens. The suspension is genuine and features fully functioning cradle arms, shocks and coil-overs. The rear suspension uses working shocks and leaf springs.
