Just acquired two Buddy L "The Rebel" rides. I've never seen either before.
The first one is a white van. I've only seen orange ones until now. Most of the vehicles in this group are orange ala The General Lee they were obviously imatating like other companies. They made a white pickup but this is the only other white vehicle I've seen. Both are metal mostly, all the plastic ones are molded in orange. The van is probably the 3rd hardest to find. So despite thinking I had completed the set, I'm happy to see there are others. The only other majority metal vehicle is the Bronco 4×4 I finally acquired after a long search. Did they make a white Bronco also? If so I want it.
The Trans Am has the same chassis as the more common Rebel Vette. I think Buddy L made a Mustang body also. They made these push down cars in different colors and stickers. Did they make a Rebel Mustang too?
Both are in fair shape. The van needs some paint touch up and the Trans Am has a broken window pillar. I've got a black Trans Am I bought to replace my Vette's cracked chassis, the chassis and drive mechanisms are fragile. Maybe I can transplant the pillar and match the paint.
Thank y'all fer lookin',
