MPC 1/25 scale Paul Revere, Mark Lindsay and The Raiders Coach issued in 1969. The
Coach (plastic Kit #622-300) was designed and built by George Barris.
The kit has a 1969 GTO front end. An 1849 Stagecoach design was used with two
500-horsepower Pontiac engines. The coach is supplied with Vox musical instruments,
including organ, guitars, drums, and loud speakers! When you bought this kit it
came with these plastic Mark Lindsay and the Raiders figures for you to display
with your finished model. The newer version does not come with these figures. CLICK->
Here's some pictures of the real car. The first image is a postcard. According to
the back of "Way-Out Wheels" post card the fabrication of this hot rod was a joint
MPC and George Barris project. The second image is of a sticker. This shot is a
little clearer. I bet that is a real GTO nose. The third is a nice clear postcard. CLICK->
Here's the newer version which is in stores now. This one is under the AMT/Ertl
name. It says, "The Authentic Model of the Super Wild Raiders Coach." Yes, this car
was really built. CLICK->

Stan Kaminski once had a
Ram Air IV Judge which was in pretty bad shape. He decided to build a
detailed model of the "before" car. It looks just like the real junker. He
has duplicated the rust and primer spots on the original car. He started with
an MPC 1:25 scale 1970 GTO. In the first two images, the model car is in
front with a photo of the actual car in the background. You can compare the
two. The third photo is of Stan's model car next to a jar of rust from his
Judge. The rust is all Stan kept of his Judge when he sold it. More images
of Stan's real fullsize Judge are in the '69 Judge section od this web site.
Some are funny! CLICK->
Look at a closeup of the Judge model interior. Here
Stan duplicated the details that are inside the door shell. You can see how
he sanded off the armrests, cut correct holes in doors and made accurate
window regulators painted silver. He also cut holes in the package shelf
area resembling speaker holes. CLICK->
Todd created this 1969 junkyard Judge convertible from a 1/18th scale diecast. He has
many other junkyard GTOs as well. You can purchase them at his website at
www.junkyardjewels.com The interior of the Judge looks dirty, rusty, and comes with a
couple of spare engine parts. He did a good job reproducing the typical rusty
rear fender of a 1969 Judge that's been neglected for some time. CLICK->
Testors made a 1969 Judge kit. It featured metal body parts which are
already painted. The kit was produced by Testors in cooperation with the Lincoln Mint.
The Testor's stock number for the kit is #7120 and was released late in 1999. The kit is
predominantly styrene plastic but it has a pre-painted die cast metal body. It only comes
in Carousel Red. The rear spoiler is plastic but it also is pre-painted. The paint job is
quite good and a little polishing and waxing should result in a beautiful model.
The stripes and Judge emblems are already on the body and look like Tampo
printing. The Rally II wheels are pre-painted as are small details such as the
silver trim in the steering wheel. The front and back window moldings, as
well as the wheel opening moldings, are separate chrome plated pieces. The
seats are made in a black, soft vinyl material. There are decals for the
instruments. Even the gas tank comes pre-painted on the chassis! The doors,
hood and trunk all open. This kit is highly recommended. A scan of the boxtop, box
bottom, and kit description were sent in by Paul Dorton. CLICK->
This is what the side of the boxlid looks like on the Testor's metal
kit. It is unusual for them to show the parts and pieces of a
kit on the side of the box. I like how they did that. Usually, the
kit contents are left up to the buyer's imagination. Or sometimes
a potential buyer will just open the box in the store and dig through it
to examine the contents. I hate when they do that. GTO model cars SHOPPING at eBay with this one click!

This red toy resembles a 1969 car. It was emailed
to me by Andre who says there is a guide pin
on the bottom of this slot car. The picture shows the top and the underside.
I have enlarged a view of the tire. The tires have a raised groove
on them so they will stay on a track. GTO model cars SHOPPING at eBay with this one click!

Hey folks, I'm a Pontiac modeler too and I'd
build a custom model of anyone's GTO too (or
Bonneville or Firebird or GP) as long as a kit
is available. I even use GM-matched factory
colors for accuracy.
Drop me a line if anybody's interested.
Here is another message about custom models...

Would you like a 1/25th scale model replica of
your show, race or daily driver? How about your
favorite NASCAR driver's car or NHRA drag racer?
Models can be box stock or highly scratchbuilt.
Cost would depend on model availability and the
