Scale Model search

Recommended Posts

Fellow Pontiac enthusiasts,

I've been trying to find a scale model or die cast version of my '76 Grand Prix. I've looked at many hobby stores and made numerous internet searches, but have found nothing. I'm not even sure if one exists. Anyone have any suggestions?

I don't think I've ever seen one for a GP of that year. Have you tried eBay?

I have, but not recently. It just seems like '73-'77 Grand Prix's are in some type of scale model black hole. Not much out there. Oh well, the search continues....

Good luck on your quest.  I've looked for an 80 Sunbird model since the car was new.

Well, after expanding my search criteria to cover the '73-'77 time frame, it looks like Lindberg produced 2 different "Snap Fit" 1/32 scale models for a '75 Grand Prix, Kit # 366 and #2113. Not exactly what I'm looking for ('75's only had 2 headlights, '76 has 4), but it's probably the closest I'm going to find. And there is an auction currently in progress on ebay for one. I just need to determine how much I'm willing to spend for something that's not exactly what I want. 

FYI Justa, not sure if you're as picky as I am about this kinda stuff, but I ran across a Lindberg Kit # 376 online, which is a '77 Buick Skyhawk, but as far as body styles it looks kinda sorta maybe possibly very similar to your '80 Sunbird??

The Buick and Vega models were the only ones made for GM's H body.  Completely different front fascia.  Lotta work to trans form into a Pontiac.

Check out the the bottom of the link below. You might try to get in touch with the guy making the resin body of a 1976 Grand Prix... maybe he made a mold!
