    I'm referring to the 1/16 scale Minicraft police car, a.k.a. the Entex V16 Cadillac Town Car if you don't use the bullet hole decals, little cardboard people, or cop related accessories. I don't know what color they painted (didn't paint??) Caddy motors back in those days. I'm old, but not [I]that[/I] old. I found production numbers and specs on the web but could't find what I want.

    Can anyone direct me to a source?

    Tanks,
    Ron

    Your best bet is to search Cadillac restoration forums. You may have to log in to search but should be worthwhile.

    A knowledgeable description here:
    1933 Cadillac V16 - Scale Auto Community

    Images here:

    As you may know, this kit is based on the car built for Joan Crawford. That may help your search.





    As you can see above, the best presentation of the valve covers would be gloss black with polished metal stripes on top and chrome bolts. Manifolds would also be a glossy black over porcelain.

    You may find this thread on a build of this kit to be of value:

    Note that there is an error on the dashboard: The entire dashboard should be wood, and the gauge panels should have a black background. This build shows it the other way around.

    It may be wrong but it looks good. That's a pretty good looking model.

    Yes, John Teresi is a superb builder.

    You should see what he currently has in progress: Turning the 1/16 Rolls Phantom II Continental into The Star of India! Check this out...

    Way nice!!! I'm a member over there too so I'll be able to follow it. With all that shiny stuff, he's got a heck of a job in front of him.

    Hello,

    the rebuilding of the Continental to the star of India is a very interesting project,
    the rebuilding of the fenders also looks already very good.
    Still he surprises me the chassis so has left.
    The Continental is much shorter and also only one two-door model.
    If this does not damage he the changes strictly has passed through.
