Hello i know there is members in this forum that are interested in scale modells of cadillacs.
I was wondering if any of you are familiare with this modell i found on a auctions site.
It is a coupe De Ville convertible 76 ???according to the ad, and it is the body from a -75 or -76 according to the headlights.
I don't know the manufactor so i don't know what country it is made in, but i think it is strange that they build a modell of a car that , to my knowledge, never existed, other than maybe custom built.
My question- is this a copy of a actual car or have the manufactor used it's "free hands" to do this modell

edit. The pic was so small so i add the URL:s instead,

hey Mike, you know that Cadillac dealership you bought, they dont have it around here. i went to Hallmark today and they said they dont carry them. they are gonna call the Bristol store and see if maybe they got it, if not then they are gonna try to order it for me. this sucks, can i have yours?

i think, that dremel rotor or something? anyway, cut around the base of it so the floor comes out, place cars on the floor and glue the floor back in, see my angle?
