In continuation of my dd/banger theme does anyone produce a limo in 24/25th? There is only onethat I can think of and like a balloon did not buy it back in 2005....

Most limos in the US are stretched versions of standard vehicles. I've seen limo Continentals, Hummers, Lincoln Navigators, Mercedes, and a few others I can't remember.  Your modeling skills, budget, and kits available are the limitations.

When I was in secondary school in the 60s I saw a '59 Chevy limo with 5 doors on each side and a luggage rack. There's a challenge for you.

There have been quite a few diecast limos made over the years, from presidential cars to modern civilian models. The newer ones have pretty good detail, and can be modified like any plastic kit.

Cadillac was the last US automaker to produce a true limousine, the Cadillac Fleetwood 75, which went away after 1987.  All subsequent Cadillac limousines are standard Cadillac 4-dr sedans, stretched by any one of a number of limousine builders.

Most likely an Armbruster-Stageway, built for airport and hotel services.

When I was in my last three trimesters of college, I was a driver for my college's minor sports team--5-door '66 Pontiacs, stretched by Stageway.  Believe me when I say that driving that pig took LOTS of planning beforehand!

those were airport cars ! I've seen a few in fields , but never restored or on the road . 

"rare" kit? no such thing!

you cant take it with you, hearses dont have luggage racks......

 There is a resin 1963 Nova Limousine available. I got mine at NNL East a few years ago. It comes with a full chassis, interior and body with an opening hood. I built mine as part of the Rolex 24 Hour Build this year. If this system would allow me to attach the jpg, I would :) 

just put BMF on everything
