I don’t normally go for different versions of the same car – well, except for the Skyline – but generally not.
Expect for the August released of the ‘Bishi Galant and this version:
With the second and final revision of the Galant VR-4 and Eterna ZR-4 being released in August 1990, the 5-speed manual transmission variants benefitted from the Evolution specifications of the RS of the same period, in order to meet the homologation rules. A new addition to the line up is the Galant VR-4 Monte Carlo Edition – a model to commemorate success in the Rally of Monte Carlo stages. Like the Super VR-4, the Monte Carlo was available in Black only with body coloured rims, with a factory standard sun-roof as an addition. All 4-speed automatic vehicles retained the earlier specifications.
As this is a rather unique edition, it had to be a buy.
Lovely addition, but I do think that the rear detailing seems to be a bit wonky.
Yes, it is a Galant, yes, it has been done before, but off the beaten track editions like this Monte Carlo version are not produced en mass. And certainly not in 1/64.
Very unique, very collectable and despite a bit of dodgy QC on the arse, well done Tomytec.
