Danbury Mint 1:24 1937 Chevrolet Half-Ton Pickup - Model GC

  Danbury Mint 1:24 1937 Chevrolet Half-Ton Pickup - Model GC diecast car
 
 
 

In 1937, Chevy entered their new pickup in the Second Annual Safe Driving Test, a 10, 244 mile jaunt that circled the nation. When the dust settled, and the engine was switched off at the end of the test, the sturdy little ton had managed 31 mph and less than a penny-a-mile operating cost for the whole trip. Publicity like that is priceless.

The 1:24 scale model of this truck by the pickup kings at Danbury Mint is the kind of jewel that reminds me why I collect '30s vintage pickup models. In the right light, the Bordeaux Maroon body, with black fenders looks positively elegant! All the fine details are sharply rendered and crackle with authenticity. A pickup-load of features like tilt-out windshield, removable seat, under-the-bed-mounted spare tire, a working rear suspension and tailgate, coupled with accessories like razor-sharp yellow pinstripes, fog lights, dual side-view mirrors, searchlight and a nifty side-mounted radio antenna, all work together to make this little beauty a standout in any truck collection. I used to think the 1935 Ford pickup was beautiful but this Chevy gives it a run for the money.

With a pickup truck this good-looking, who would need to own a car? Makes me want to put on my John Deere ball cap and head down to the feed store. The issue price is $118 + S&H. (12/01/1998)
