Plymouth Prowler

Before I saw this Fast Lane Plymouth Prowler, I had never before seen a scale model of a Prowler. I don’t find the Prowler particularly beautiful or ugly; the only reason I bought this model is because I don’t think I’ll be able to find another Prowler in the near future.  (The scale model is actually purple even though my picture below makes it seem to be blue.)

The body seems to be made of metal. The plastic base has the text “NO. 6045 SCALE 1:64,” “MADE IN CHINA,” and “(C) CHRYSLER GROUP 2011” embossed and the text “055899” and “1801 8 EH” printed in white.

The company that made the Prowler has had many names: Chrysler (1925-1998), DaimlerChrysler (1998-2007), Chrysler LLC (2007-2009), and Chrysler Group LLC (2009-2014). It is currently called Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Prowlers made from 1997 to 2000 are called Plymouth Prowlers and those made from 2001 to 2002 are called Chrysler Prowlers. I’m calling this model a “Plymouth Prowler.”

The Mick’s Model Auto World website shows a different Fast Lane 6045: a green “Plymouth Prowler” which the site claims has a copyright year of 2003 and a scale of 1:55.
