Inaugural Automodello release was the 1964 Griffith Series 200.
In a recent interview between Matthew White, editor for The Diecast Magazine and Andrew "Jack" Griffith, Matt asked what was the inspriation for the Griffith. Jack's reply: "I was racing a Cobra as the East Coast end of Carroll Shelby's racing team. Mark Donohue was Vice President of my company and drove the Cobra. Carroll and I were talking one night in a bar in New York City and I said 'I think I can build a car to be faster and less expensive [than the Cobra]'. We had both been drinking, and the next morning I said, 'What did I say last night?' That's how it all started."During the same interview Jack was asked how well the Automodello replica compares to the 1:1 Griffith Series 200, Jack's reply to Matt White: "The model is perfect in all ways.".Automodello is a manufacturer specializing in overlooked, neglected and interesting as well as new models from British, European, North American and other marques. Automodello's inagural model is the 1964 Griffith Series 200 followed by the 1974 to 1976 Bricklin SV1 and the 1966 Fitch Phoenix.
