When Danbury blew it out of the park with their 54 Apollo Gold Eldorado convertible, you just knew what was to follow, right? Go ahead and consider this its running mate with a lid; albeit, a terrific lid. The coupe arrives in Coupe DeVille designation and in gloriously elegant Gander Gray attire. Its somewhat more formal than the playful yellow drop top but highly fashionable and period correct. The paint is a poly (metallic), deep gray with overtly blue overtones while the interior is conservatively understated in two-tone gray. The inevitable comparison to the rag top will unveil few surprises; you will either like one or the other or you will have to own both of them. Having placed them side by side, Id go with the latter suggestion.

All the operational features of the Coupe DeVille are the same as found on the Eldo; opening taillight revealing the fuel filling port, high tech hinges for doors and hood, to-die-for badgings and awesome wire wheels. And you just gotta love the tire patterning. It is simply outstanding for a 1:24th scale model. The intricate tread design, split in the middle and partially overlapping to the sidewall, is highly reminiscent of the General Dual 90 wide whitewalls of the fifties. The highly detailed engine is the same and the undercarriage is as remarkable but the model does not come with a three-piece hard boot or fabric-covered up top. Well, duh! It doesnt have the flashy chrome splash on the bottom of the rear fender either, but it is a limited edition of only 5000.

Whether you like the naughty, flamboyant gold glamour gal or her more serious and sultry sister, youre going to have a difficult pick. Both have phenomenal looks and grand character lines. It just seems a shame to break up such a lovely pair you really need them both!
