    I would like to find a diecast of my 66 Skylark GS. I know its probably a rare thing which is usually the case for me. Thanks in advance.

    There is/was a '67 GS available in 1/18 scale.
    The '66 GS was available from Johnny Lightning in a 1/64 scale.

    AMT made a plastic 1/25 model kit of the '66 GS back in the day, and there were plastic promo models from Buick.

    I think I have one of those, a red one. But all my toys are still packed up from moving a few years ago :(

    They also made the purple "Christmas Ornament" one some time ago. It was actually pretty detailed and came with a hook to attach and hang on your tree. We use ours every year.

    there are the other 3. as for the amt model the only one made recently was a stock car version. still the same body and nailhead but the grill is different and the interior is gutted. back in the 60s a gs was built but last one I saw was 300 bucks. you can buy the parts to convert the stock car one in resin from some of the resin model companies. there is also a 67 resin slot car body in ho scale on ebay sometimes. 67 versions of the johnny lightning cars and the 1:18 version of a 67. I have 2 67 1:18 ones a burgundy one I was bought for xmas and a white one that was give to me that belonged to a family member who passed away. I treasure the white one and flip out if anyone messes with it.
