They are both mine. I just got the mint kinda in the package, the blister is torn on the side. Don't know if it happened in shipping or if it was like that. Didn't matter to me cause the car is mint and I was going to open it anyways.
Great pix - that's one of my all time favorite castings. I think the one I had as a kid was a more pale metallic blue (but maybe not).
Just for the record, I think this one's intended to represent the 1963 model. You can tell by the smoothed out rear fins. That was a combination of Virgil Exner's (just fired) and Elwood Engel's (just hired) styling ideas. I came this close to buying a 1/1 a few years ago, but just didn't have enough space to park it.
Is the green interior version rare? I haven't seen it before.
Really cool blister design, too. Thanks for posting it.
Hey Lummox, welcome back from your tour. How was it? Wisht I could've stopped in to hear you guys, but it was just a few too many hundreds of miles away. Hope you had a blast making lots of good memories!
Good eyes, LMX; I noticed that, too. I was wondering if they ever really produced it; thx 4 the pic.
I think it's the one with the Desoto-esque tailights, right?
I was lucky enough to see a black & silver one at a concours when I lived in CA. They look insane when you consider that it's a RR! Definitely a What-Were-They-Thinking styling job. I still like 'em though.
I had that Impy Rolls Royce when I was younger. Mine was silver and had a center hinged hood. Still haven't located a replacement yet. Always loved the jeweled headlights.
Guess I was a little off on the year of the Imperial, too many "19 shows in 21 days" in my early years :freak:
