It appears to me that "American Excellence" does not manufacture models.
They purchase from other manufacturers and mark them up and re-sell
The Greenbrier and Rampside are made by Neo and can be found on ebay for
Next coming from Neo is a Corvan

Subject: <VV> O Scale Corvair Models I Had Not Seen
In my other life, I collect old toy trains. I'm building a 24 x 32'
layout on the 3rd floor of our house this winter. Someday I'll post
links to a website showing it finished. I'll likely meet up with the
Grim Reaper later that same day, but that's another story.
There's a thread on an O Scale toy train list right now concerning good
sources of O Scale cars (approx 1/48). People were recommending
"American Excellence". I had never heard of them so I browsed their
site and was astonished to see 7,000 different models available.
MANY OF THESE ARE EXPENSIVE, particular for a skin-flint Corvair owner,
but look at these:
On the last one, it looks to me like someone named "Lucky Die Cast"
bought the old Yat Ming dies.
The first 3 are too rich for my blood, but perhaps the prices will drop
over time. I wasn't aware they were even out there.
Some of their other non-Corvair offerings are amazing. Enjoy.
