#487 S.M./ SUMMER – CHEVROLET CORVETTE (S8564F), FORD GT 40 (89-27) and MASERATI MERAK SS (88-05) (Around 1996)



This entry is a continuation for the previous entry: these are three samples of late Summer castings, I got them in a lot, and I decided to keep them, despite being so new, and so badly painted and finished. The casting however are nice, I immediately recognized the Chevrolet Corvette (S8564F), the Ford GT40 (89-27) and the Maserati Merak SS (88-05).


The numbering system was also appealing, since most Chinese manufacturers from the late 90s didn’t bother printing references on their toys.



If you want to see the complete listing of Summer models please go to Breithaups.com where you’ll be able to read more about the company, and their scale cars.

This article talks only about the “reissues” from the mid to late 90s: http://www.breithaupts.com/totc349.htm
