PICS - Motor City USA Oldsmobiles, Pontiacs and Chevrolets white metal and resin
In answer to Alex's question above, the two 50 Pontiac 2dr ht coupes on the Johnson Motors lot are both Motor City models. The two-tone green is not particularly common although it was the standard colour scheme for the maker's 51 Chevrolet 2dr hardtop. MCUSA also issued a few 50 Oldsmobiles in this colour scheme as well.

Here are a few Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles and Chevrolets that MCUSA released:


The green Oldsmobile above has a resin body unlike the other two which are white metal.

The green Oldsmobile convertible above also has a resin body. Motor City USA issued its final MCUSA models, such as a small run of '50 Oldsmobiles and 48 Chevrolets, with resin bodies. This was during the time that they brought out their resin-bodied "Sunset Motor Coach" and "Motor City Gold" lines

And, no, with the exception of the three Johnson Motor diorama Pontiacs, I no longer have any of these models, long ago transferred to other collectors.
