I’m hoping an enthusiast out there can help me out.  I am a huge Mopar fan, and recently have finally been able to get one of my dream cars after a 2 year search.  Now my garage houses a 2010 SRT8 Challenger in Furious Fuchsia.  In trying to find as many accessory pieces for display, and fulfilling my OCD for collecting, I have been made aware of a hard to find 1/18 scale die cast model of my beautiful machine.  I have the 1/64 scale Matchbox, and the 1/25 scale model from AMT.  I am wondering if anyone knows of a source for finding Highway 61 models that are discontinued. I believe they all are, after their company was absorbed by Greenlight Collectibles. I always loved the 1/18 scale, as that was the size my dad got for me years ago.

I am specifically looking for 3 models: 

1. 1/18 scale Highway 61 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8 in Furious Fuchsia.

2. 1/18 scale Highway 61 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A in Panther Pink with              white top/interior.

3. 1/18 scale Ertl 1969 Dodge Charger in Panther Pink.

If anyone knows of any convention circuit attendees or any other type of source for acquisition, I would be extremely grateful.  

This request for information would also apply to promotional dealership brochures, press releases, advertising and posters for the 2010 Furious Fuchsia Dodge Challenger, both US and Canadian markets.

It is always this type of situation, it seems. We work hard to afford what we can to support our hobbies, but it is usually YEARS after the initial support items have been off-market.

I appreciate all who took the time to read my laborious post. I think it’s incredible, the effort, time and resources it takes to create and support our interests. Thank you for considering assisting me.

Congratulations on your tasty Mopar acquisitions large and small. Personally I don't have any connections in this regard, but as a fellow Mopar fan, I appreciate your "OCD". Perhaps you might try the "MOPAR TRADER PAGE" on Facebook. I occasionally see diecast and promotional materials advertised for sale there. Once you are accepted you can post a "looking to buy" ad for the items you are looking for. Good luck with your quest!  Smile

Thank you for your encouragement and tip! I have been a Mopar fan since I was still crapping my pants pre-toddler style watching Bo and Luke outrun Roscoe P. and Boss Hogg back in the 80s. I appreciate a fellow Mo’ fan as well. Have a great holiday season!

...#3, no such thing as a 1969 Challenger.....1970 ?

...did a little nosing around on EBay, things come and go on there, keep looking, I have found very rare vintage kits with a little patience

...I have owned many real MOPARs over the years including 4 Panther Pink T/A Challengers, still own 1....also have a 2010 HURST “Competition Plus” Challenger SRT, Supercharged 6-spd in Furious Fuchsia (white interior), 1 of 2 built by HURST Performance Inc

Pretty cool ownership rundown! The Hurst FF is definitely a unicorn. Have you dyno tested it to see what it puts to the wheels?  My stock FF SRT 8 puts down 364 hp, 360 lb torque. Just curious to see how much more power was gained with the tuning and bolt-ons from the hurst package. If I had the means, definitely an FM3 Challenger T/A would make it into the garage. BTW, you definitely caught me in a typo- I meant 1969 Charger for the pink Ertl die cast. Thanks for the encouragement!
