Every details are well put together. Great collectible or gift piece. 1965 Pontiac GTO diecast model car 1:18 scale die cast by Maisto is one of the best showcase model for any auto enthusiasts. The Pontiac GTO is an automobile that was built by Pontiac from 1964 to 1974, and by Holden in Australia from 2004 to 2006. The first generation GTO was a muscle car of the 1960s and 1970s era. Although there were earlier muscle cars, the Pontiac GTO is considered by some to have started the trend with all four domestic automakers offering a variety of competing models. From 1964 and 1965 Tempest had the GTO option. In 1966 the GTO became its own model until 1972. In 1973 GTO became an option again but for the Le Mans.In 1974 GTO then became an option on the Ventura.
The Tempest line, including the GTO, was restyled for the 1965 model year, adding 3.1 inches (79 mm) to the overall length while retaining the same wheelbase and interior dimensions. It had Pontiac’s characteristic vertically stacked quad headlights. A seldom seen dealer-installed option consisted of a metal underhood pan and gaskets to open the scoop, making it a cold air intake. The scoop was low enough that its effectiveness was questionable (it was unlikely to pick up anything but boundary layer air), but it allowed more of the engine’s roar to escape. Another cosmetic change was the black “egg-crate” grille. Detroit’s fabled muscle car era began in the mid-’60s, a halcyon time for automotive speed enthusiasts, when a buck could buy you five gallons of gas. Pontiac’s GTO was one of the era’s standouts, and this Maisto 1:18 scale metal model re-creates this fine achievement. The beefy sports opening doors, trunk, and hood–open ‘er up and find its massive GM V-8 replicated right down to the “chromed” triple-carbs and rocker covers. Other features of this Hurst special edition model include adjustable front wheels, detailed interior, working steering, and “chromed” accessories including shifter, wheels, and dual exhaust. Also includes real independent spring suspension and a stackable plastic display unit.
