GreenLight celebrates the RED, WHITE & the BOLD!
1:18 1970 Challengers depute in patriotic colors for their July release
Indianapolis, IN (July 1, 2011) In 1965 Dodge set out to create their contribution to Pony Pandemonium, the outcome was a heavy and attractive beast known today as the Challenger. Stylist Carl Cameron refined the design, and in 1970 Dodge was building the first Challenger prototypes. GreenLight has taken these well worked and competitively crafted machines into the 1:18 scale collector business.
The R/T (Road and Track) model is known for its purpose in performance and GreenLight has achieved their own performance with the incredible authenticity of two distinct versions of the 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T convertible. The different offerings diversify the release and satisfy two demands for the auto enthusiast consumer. The Ralley Red Challenger has a Power Dome Hood over a 383 CID Magnum V8 with fresh white stripes on the rear. While the White Challenger sports a Shaker Hood; used to forced air into the 426 HEMI engine, and fierce black stripes running down the sides.
GreenLight’s offering of this model will include:
(12818) 1:18 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Convertible – Rallye Red w/ White Stripes
(12819) 1:18 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Convertible – White w/ Black Stripes
Paired together these cars sport body paint schemes that remind us of our USA pride, just in time for the anniversary of our country’s birth. These 1:18 1970 Challengers will have you seeing fireworks, and this will have nothing to do with 4th of July!
These 1:18 die-cast replicas feature detailed engines, real rubber tires, metal body and chassis, detailed graphics, custom license plates and are officially licensed. Their release is scheduled for July 2011 and 1,500 pieces of each color will be produced. Both models will be available through official GreenLight hobby shops and wholesale dealers.
