That’s a good point too Bob! Take the FM LeSabre show car
Its a model of a 1 off show car yet FM produced a few thousand of them. Its said to have been one of the best selling FM Diecasts! That supports my theory. IF a diecast model will sell, they will produce it regardless how many 1:1s were made. Mustangs and corvettes are popular 1:1s and in models. The gen 1 mustangs (1964 1/2- 1966) sold in record numbers. Over a Million were sold in this three year span. If I recall correctly about 1.2-1.3 MILLION 1:1s sold. Undoubtedly FM and DM SOLD thousands of copies of the different year Mustangs they offered. The 1:1 just has appeal and demand so diecast collectors want one as well
