Her portrait has been done by a well known artist and a limited number of prints were made. A 35th anniversary addition diecast was produced through Cars + Parts Magazine and only a few now exist. I have commissioned Ertl (RC2) to produce a limited 50th anniversary edition that will be better than ever, more true to the real specifications of the actual "Peggy Sue" car that now resides in a Dallas, Texas museum.

    DIE CAST CREATION:

  5. Based on the relationship between Peggy Sue Gerron and John Langford, and that the song "Peggy Sue" by Buddy Holly and the Crickets was released in 1957, an opportunity arose to create a "50th Anniversary" die cast depicting both.

  6. Since the "50th Anniversary" represents the "Golden Anniversary" and that the 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air was the only model year to have 'gold' trim, it became apparent that we were blessed with an extraordinary opportunity.

  7. After researching the 1957 Bel Air die cast we found that no other die cast in the world had the proper color combination or detail depicting the real 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible "Peggy Sue" located in a Dallas, TX museum.

  8. It was agreed to produce a die cast befitting the legendary car and capturing the spirit of 'Peggy Sue' resulting in a "Perfect Match".

  9. 2007 "Peggy Sue LLC" formed.
