This is a racing car model kit assembled from parts made of resin, white metal, photo-etched metal and possibly other materials.
The "Deal's Wheels" kit that should have been, now is! Yes, thanks to Motor Psycho in conjunction with Model Factory Hiro, we now have a Dave Deal "Deal's Wheels" style kit of the 1962 Chevrolet Cheetah, the car built to take it to the Shelby Cobras in the 1960s racing scene. With the car's light-weight chassis and powerful 500 hp Chevy V8, the Cheetah was a formidable competitor.
So just who was Dave Deal, and what were "Deal's Wheels?"
Dave Deal was an automotive artist specializing in wild caricatures of high performance cars, and he took that vision into the third dimension when he worked with Revell in the 1970s to produce plastic model kits of his outrageous and humorous designs. This was the "Deal's Wheels" series of kits, which included such memorable models as the "Trans Um Tirebird," "'57 cHEVY" "ZZZZZZZZ-28," "Swine Hunt," "Bug Bomb/Bug Out," "Van," "Glitter Bug," "Baja Humbug," "Ferd Phony Car," "Go-Mad Nomad," "McLapper Mk. V8," "Super Spurt," and "Stink Ray." Whew!
Japanese maker Motor Psycho has arranged with the Deal estate to produce this limited-run resin-cast kit of the 1962 Chevy Cheetah in a "Deal's Wheels" caricature style (designed from Dave's own drawings!), right down to the Deal-inspired instruction sheet (in English, no less!)! Even includes Dave's alter ego Stirling Goodfellow in the driver's seat. With all parts cast by Model Factory Hiro, this multi-media kit features a cast resin body, chassis, and interior, cast metal detail parts, vacu-formed windscreen, black cast resin tires, and beautiful silkscreen printed decals. Requires drilling of the chassis and tires for the axles. The castings are flawless (as you'd expect from Model Factory Hiro!), and the memories it'll bring back are priceless!
This is a very limited run kit, so be sure to grab yours quick!
