ROCK “Original 1975” matches the 25-car order built by General American in 1975. There’s nothing like a little bit of ROCK blue to remind you it is 1975! Correct phase details are present in this car including low mounted brake stand, a later body with wide side posts and an Apex running board. Of course, every single piece of data on the sides of the car is accurately replicated. Yes, ALL of it. And don’t forget to check out those beautiful Brenco 6-sided roller bearing caps!
