1965-66 Barracuda, Charger, Riviera, etc. - who says these haven't been made?
Well, I admit they could be done better now. Cragstan marketed the Gamda Koor / Sabra range from Israel in the sixties, all of these are 1965 or 1966 models.

sabra x 9
The original packaging is shown with the Mustang hardtop still inside - a clear plastic garage stuck to a card backer (the latter usually missing these days as the glue dries out).

barracuda

barracuda rear
This is the Barracuda everyone is clamoring for. Not the best but it does exist. And here are a few of its friends:

corvette
Corvette with hardtop - no other 1:43 of the hardtop exists to my knowledge.

riviera
1966 Riviera - no one else made one to my knowledge.

charger
1966 Charger - ditto

corvair
2nd generation Corvair - has recently been bettered by both Yat Ming and Brooklin.

chevy impalas
1966 Impalas - on the right is the Israeli police version.
