Purchased from Danbury short after its release in 2005, this miniature was exhibited in a showcase for about 10 years away from light, dust and heat. Then back in its styrofoam packaging box, and then in its cardboard packaging(see photos 2-8) didn't come out till now to be photographed to be offered for sale on Catawiki.
The model is ‘INTACT’ despite its 14 years of existence. As the pictures show, many elements can be operated: the doors, the front seats (see photos 32 and 35), the removable radio (!) (see photos 36 and 39), the sun visors (see photos 40 and 41), the antenna (see photo 42 and 43) the boot and its Continental kit (see 44 to 47), the fuel door (Cf. photos 48 and 49) the removable wing skirts (see pictures 55 to 58 and 64 to 67)) and the bonnet. The hood can be installed in folded or unfolded position. Steering and suspensions are also operational.
The styrofoam packaging, of course of origin, is as the car, INTACT. It is the same for the specific plastic packaging for the unfolded hood (see photos 9 and 10). Cardboard packaging is also INTACT.
Also enclosed the following original documents (intact): the nominative certificate of authenticity (Olivier Maes), at the back a little history over the real model (see photos 70 and 71) and the instruction manual relative to the handling and use of the model (Cf. photos 72 and 73)
Please note that some bluish reflections may appear on the pictures because of the colour of the smartphone used.
Conclusion: It is a Danbury in Olympic shape who made this sensational miniature of this Pontiac of 1958. The finish is flawless. A multitude of details make the model extremely realistic (see the dashboard for example) with many pieces that can be operated. As found on the net, it is a lot that could be described as RARE insofar as this miniature is perfectly new, with its packaging and original documents, despite its 14 years of existence. It is a model actually reproduced in an extraordinary way.
