Those are some cool finds, I had several of those a couple years back with the same type of wheels and ended up selling them because Im more into hotwheels & matchbox, I did find out that they do sell a bit better with that type of wheel... :)

Congratulations on the cool finds! I had the Caddy when I was little and would love to find another one, since my original is long gone.

All very nice in less common colours.The Jensen FF seems to be the highest priced car from the whole range on ebay when near mint in a nice colour -demand far outstrips supply especially in rare metallic colours with hubcaps

Just got this one for about half what I see them at auction. My first with the "sand dollar" hubcap:

That metallic gold is probably the rarest colour used by Playart 1971-76 - hard to find on any casting and it was the last new colour I discovered for myself last year - gr8 score!

Yea, I'm guessing that there are a couple of collectors on here that are going to be stalking you for that. Good thing I don't collect Mustangs…

Nice indeed, I have a couple of the Stangs as well, to my knowledge, the only casting of a 1969 Coupe ever produced. You really have some sweet cars here!

Thanks! I've only kept Playart Challengers in the past, but I plan to keep this Mustang :)

Finally got another Mopar besides my Challengers. I remember reading one time that Playart designers really knew their cars as, for example, this one is not just a Plymouth Barracuda, but a Barracuda Formula S.

This is so very close to the Hotwheels Redline size and shapewise,I wonder if Playart made this because they liked the Redline and had one handy?
