I had the red convertible. I am probably late to the party but I remember buying it at a hobby store
In Farmington Hills Mi. back in 1980/1981 time frame. The man told me his father was the model maker and that Oakland Models was named after the county of Oakland which basically covers the north western suburbs of Detroit. His first was the 54 Ford as that was one of his favorites and had planed many more models that never happened or maybe bought out? Don't know if his story was true or not but thought I would share it.
