Danbury Mint Little Deuce Coupe

Post by michael on Tue 19 Jul 2011, 8:13 pm

Hi Guys,

I bought A 1:24 scale replica of The "Silver Saphire" later known as the Little Deuce Coupe. All i can say is for my first diecast car it is amazing, it is mega detailed with dipsticks and fuel,brake lines its nuts for a 1/24 model. Danbury mint must have the Japs working overtime!
I have to give Peter Cozens from Antique Toy World Full credit for this car He was very easy To Deal With, and most importantly Packaged the box so good that it was consisted of one big box, foam wrap and foam balls, and than the model box with bubblewrap around it.. so buy lots of stuff from him lol

This is an absolute gem of a model car and quite rare now. I can almost hear the Beach Boys singing that song - sigh!

Danbury Mint did do a great job on it, and the equally rare Danbury Mint '27 T-bucket from the TV show "77 Sunset Strip".

I have also purchased items from Antique Toy World and found them extremely helpful and friendly. The shop in Camberwell (Melbourne) is worth a visit. You have done very well with this one mate - congratulations.
