Heres a 60 on ebay.
The one you have a pic of could be one of 3 things, Hubley did Plastic kits, Metal Kits, and Promos.
I suspect it is a promo. Yeah a little cheesy not much detail, but they can be detailed into a great curbside. Dealers used to use promos, if you came in to look at a car they gave you the model to take home and look at, theidea being you would keep staing at ti and want the car. If you bought the car they gave you the promo to keep. My Uncle collects all the new style Vettes ( Ertl ).
I think they may be slightly smaller than 1/24th but not sure.
Go to ebay and search for Hubley, there are abunch right now. Oh yeah don't be surprised if the promos are expensive, the old ones are collectible.

"curbside" is a term for a model that has no engine, no opening doors/hood/trunk, and has no detail to the chassis. it's just something that sits there looking pretty so to speak. lol
