those are all die cast bodies, likely Motor Max 1/64 American Graffiti series. I have a bunch of those that I haven't converted yet.
on eBay in toys and hobbies/diecast/1/64 put in the word dio* (make sure you use the asterisk) and many of those will come up. prices vary and some are too high.
some have nice diorama scenes, some just have a photo on cardboard background.

Al, look at Rick's Yellow Milner coupe again, the bottom portion is a T-Jet Hotrod Coupe/Roadster with a New Roof grafted on and new nose and added rear fenders....

you got it. popped the top off that diecast and the grille too, IIRC. (i posted a thread on it a zillion years ago, wonder if i can find it.) i wanted to get the front cycle fenders on too, but i lack the engineering talent and voodoo skills to make that work...

the Impala was cast by Roger Corrie, and if i'm not mistaken he used the JL diecast as the master, then shrunk it down using... what was that shrinking resin stuff he discovered? and Falfa's '55 was a Bat-Jet resin, also based on a diecast. in retrospect, i shoulda used another MM '55 like i did for the Two-Lane Blacktop car, since it was a sedan and not a hardtop. trivia fact: did you all know that the '55 in Two-Lane Blacktop and Falfa's '55 are the same car?

American graffetti

Here are the Resin bods Joe Furulli does they come with movie actors for both cars . The coupe sits on a slimline chassis and the 55 uses a regular tjet chassis. Mekenzie Phillips even has an Ice cream cone.
