Jinx Express
Mod Armored Truck

  • Original year: 1971
  • Company: Monogram
  • Scale: 1/24
  • Designer: Tom Daniel

Tom Daniel stuck a big, bad engine under the tinted hood scoop of this rollin' "Fort Knox", then added zoomie pipes, periscope, high-rise spoiler and big, wide, super-fast slicks to give it the GO when the green comes on. This model has detailed driver's compartment, revolving turret, with slot for depositing coins, and rear "vault" door that opens for withdrawals with a combination lock that really works. It's can bank on it.

Dave's comments:

The original mod money mover. Two years later (1973), Monogram came out with the 'knockoff' - - the Fast Buck. It's a real bank, but the interest it pays is very low. AMT did their own armored car about that time with the Li'l Cashbox. This original kit is still sealed.
