I actually found the green/flamed wagon version at a Fred Meyers (kroger) last year. Cool casting, wish it sat lower like the F&F version. Same thing with the '70 Nova.

This casting has been around a while. Here's an older premium one, I think?... can't remember if I changed the wheels on this or not, just going thru old pics...

The grey primer Fast & Furious casting looks so much different from the main line series design! Most of the 1:1s I remember from my school days did look more like the main lines though and did a lot of weekend racing!

The green one is a really nice color.

Interesting that the blue one is labeled with a Taxi tampo!

If you really want to get nerdy about the Fast & Furious Chevelle's.. (I'm a big F&F nerd...)

In the movies, the primer gray one was in a race where it did a wheelie at the start of the race, the red one was just shown driving around.

They should be the opposite of above, the gray would have to be the jacked up one to do a wheelie, and the red should be more of the lowered one.

(..and they did put out the gray as more of a mainline one on a F&F card, and they also did the red as a premium F&F lowered.)

The primer grey Chevelle in that movie is the same car as his initial red Chevelle, in the scene before the race he is shown painting the red Chevelle primer grey(not really sure why but sure). He later blows up this car in order to escape with his life.

A similar red with black stripes Chevelle is seen in later movies, the one where Dom goes "rogue" features one when Letty is sitting in it viewing a picture that was left in it's glove box. Always found it remarkably funny how cars they destroy in one movie will reappear in later movies, like the many black 1970 Chargers Dom has had.

Yeah, I remember those scenes now.... and I guess when it comes to the one doing a wheelie, I'm sure that was a one off modified one anyway.

Like someone said online, in the first movie, the iconic scene where the Charger does a burnout and a wheelie?... they say it would be one or the other, either doing a wheelie because it has a lot of traction, or a burnout because he lost traction, but not both

The only cars that can really do that are the "fuel" cars at NHRA events. Making around 11,000 horsepower out of 500 cubic inches, with a HEMI of course.
