Right you are, Jack. I went to my trusty "Special Brooklins" book
by Roger Mateo, of the now-defunct San Francisco Bay Brooklin Club, and confirmed that the German Brooklin Club did the two versions of BRK 13 back in 1994. The black T'Bird had a Marilyn figure in red dress (the photo in the book shows her behind the steering wheel), whereas the pink version had her in a white dress and in the photo she's shown in the passenger seat leaning against the passenger door.

According to the book, 250 of each were made. It would be great to find one, esp. the pink one!
