So apparently Monogram did NOT make their Mini Exacts back in the late ‘80's/ early ‘90's. As I kid I didn’t think they did, honestly. Of course, I had the red ‘63 Corvette and the black ‘57 Chevy. These are all plastic cars that had interiors, rolling wheels, and were 1/87 scale.
So one day a few months ago, one comes up for sale, but it was RED!!!! YES, OMG is was RED and the side molding was painted. It even came with the black one I had as a child. I didn’t ask any questions, I just bought it!!!! Now here it is for all to see. Note, the red is darker in person:
