It’s a little rough around the edges and somewhat disproportionate. But, this Olds Starfire is a pretty nice cast. I dare anyone to show me a 1:64 scale diecast trunk bigger than this! This makes the Lesney Lincoln continental’s trunk look small.

I love the paint color and the finish. I’m not too fond of the lower half chrome that hasn’t held up with age. The plastic wheels are Husky’s traditional ones for their older models. It’s a crude cast that pales in comparison to the Matchbox Lesneys that were available around the same time. But, it does have it’s unique charm and the Olds Starfire does not get much love.
