Frankly, I'm somewhat surprised that Franklin Mint hadn't reissued their '67 Corvette in this color combo before now. It took Michelle Peters of Mint Models to realize just how lovely a repaint of this model would be with a Silver Pearl top coat, black leather interior and a black stinger stripe accent with Good Year Speedway Blue Streak tires. So, thanks to her and Franklin Mint for creating this great combo. It is the L-88 version of Corvette's iconic heartthrob that routinely sends 1:1 collectors to the poor house to buy one. Rare as hen's teeth, they command the price that few Holy Grail cars ever approach.

Obviously this is not a new tooling; it is based on the previous FM Sting Ray roadster released in 1994. Shape and stance are faithful and the model comes equipped with the quintessential bells and whistles; side-mounted exhaust, finned aluminum wheels and the aforementioned Blue Streaks. The engine compartment is the highlight of the diecast, much as it is in the genuine article. The headlight pods flip up and the wipers are delicately photo-etched metal pieces. The paint is rich and smooth and nicely scaled metallic. Lined up next to any other FM '67 you'll find this little number shines like a new dime. Speaking of numbers, in a limited issue of 435 units, to match the HP rating, you may eventually find this replica approach hen's teeth status real quickly.
