The Maisto brand name was registered in 1990 by May Cheong, a vertically integrated manufacturer based in Hong Kong. The company has been manufacturing die cast replicas for over 30 years, have over 11,000 employees worldwide and manufacturing facilities covering over 2,000,000 square feet.
Introduced in July, 2004, “Pro Rodz represent the next natural progression in die-cast for Maisto, as the vehicles are being taken from the pro-touring hotrod scene to be brought into the commercial spotlight”. Ralph Benitez is the innovative designer that has created the cutting-edge look, design, and attitude of Pro Rodz: “These modernized “super-rods” are here to reclaim the streets of America, and Maisto will be the first to offer these in a highly detailed, die-cast collectible.“
These cars all about style and speed. Imagine one of the baddest muscle cars of all time - the 1968 Camaro - with a brand new, fully chromed Corvette LS1 engine roaring under the hood. Pop the trunk and you will find a chrome fuel cell neatly tucked inside. The fully customized interior is equipped with racing-style bucket seats, 5-point harnesses, a chrome roll cage, lots of performance gauges and more. The body has been dropped into a low, aggressive stance, modified with a large cowl-induction hood, and a custom paint scheme. It looks fast.
The Pro Rodz titles include:
Titles are available in various scales and come complete with custom liquid paint schemes, licensed wheels, and excessively detailed interiors.
