Ultra-Realistic "Unrestored" 1/18 Scale Diecast Collectables
If you have ever responded to a classified ad for a classic car or truck that included the description "easy restoration" only to drive 100 miles to find a rusted out piece of junk then you will really appreciate the amount of realistic detail found on these 1/18 scale diecast replicas!
Surface rust, rust holes, rusty bumpers, filthy interiors full of junk parts, primer & rusty body panels galore, these once proud classics are in sad shape indeed. I like to describe classic cars & trucks like these as "beat but complete" and these replicas definitely need it all. In all honesty, most wouldn't even be a decent parts car. Most wouldn't even attempt to restore rust buckets like these, but you'll be proud to make a custom Junkyard Jewel the centerpiece of your die-cast collection.
What are the Junkyard Jewels “Easy Restoration” diecasts?
The Junkyard Jewels “Easy Restoration” Series begin as highly detailed 1/18 scale die cast replicas offered by Ertl, GMP, Lanes and other quality 1/18 scale diecast manufacturers.
They feature opening doors & hood, detailed interiors, engine compartments and chassis's. The steering wheel even turns the front wheels!
Each die-cast is completely disassembled and then even MORE detail is added. Then, a multi-step process is used to add weathering, faded paint, rust, dirt, grease and grime. Don't worry, the weathering, rust, dirt, grease and grime is permanent, you won't get your hands dirty working on this one!
After completion, each Junkyard Jewel is mounted in its original box & display base, complete with identification tag, ready to be added to your collection. You can easily remove the replicas from the display base if desired.
Each Junkyard Jewel is individually serial numbered, authenticating it as a genuine Junkyard Jewel.
Since each Junkyard Jewel is detailed and "unrestored" by hand, no two will EVER be exactly alike! No "mass production", each replica takes many hours to complete, we couldn't mass produce them if we wanted to!
It's the little details that make the difference!
When was the last time you saw a rusted out junker that still had all four factory mag wheels or hubcaps?
This is an area where most of the other unrestored diecasts fall short. We manufacture our own "plain steel wheels" for our Junkyard Jewels for that added realism you won't find anywhere else.
Just like a real rust bucket, every Junkyard Jewel's interior is full of extra junk parts. Just another exclusive feature that makes Junkyard Jewels the most realistic diecast replicas available.
Here's what diecast collectors have to say about the "Junkyard Jewels" unrestored diecast collectables:
"Just had to say WOW! Great Detail!"
"Great looking cars! I love the unrestored look!"
"Just had to say how impressed I am with these unrestored replicas!"
"I love the unrestored Pontiac GTO Judge convertible! I was hooked and thought it was a REAL Judge! The picture of the Judge in the junkyard fooled me at first! It's great!"
"Just wanted to say I love your versions of unrestored diecast cars!"
"Love the 69 Oldsmobile! I think 'rust free' must mean that the 'rust' is 'free'!"
"Just saw your cars and these are sooooooo cool!"
"Awesome, just awesome! And I didn't have to drive 100 miles!"
"These are the coolest!"
