    Just saw this new Highway 61 diecast model of the Carcraft Magazine Giveaway ‘69 Swinger.

      Saw that yesterday. I parked next to it at the MCACN show a couple years ago, been on my bucket list ever since I saw it in the magazine originally. Too bad it sold at the auction way more than it was worth and priced way out of my league...

      The Car Craft Swinger has seemed to have fallen off the map over the last two years.
      Does anyone know who owns it today and where it resides?
      I too was also wanting to own it badly, but agree that it was way over priced.
      I guess the die cast one will be as close to owning it as we will get.

      I did know who bought it, but can't remember off the top of my head. I will have to research it again...

      I think I'll get one.
      Highway 61 has some good quality stuff.
      Thanks for posting this!

        I just found this hero card from when the guy who bought it at auction was trying to sell it at MCACN...

          Do you know how much it went for at auction?

          I know the guy wanted $59,999 for the car, pretty sure it sold around $50K

              Saw it on an old ramp truck at the Mopar Nationals in 1992. Still have a picture of it around here somewhere...

              Just bear in mind it's Green Light using the Highway 61 mold. They've been known to cut corners even with the the good molds. I know at least one guy thought the car wasn't as good as it should have been. He still liked it though.

                I have started to go back through some of my carousel slide trays and I just uncovered the picture that I had taken of the Car Craft Swinger at the 1991 Nats.
                Not have a slide scanner. I ended up taking a digital picture of the projected slide. That's why the image quality is not that good.
