Shelby Collectibles 1966 Ford GT40 Mk II #2

Post by Gavin » Fri Aug 24, 2012 11:27 am

I was looking forward to getting one of these as soon as they were announced. For the price point (I paid $40), I think they're really well done. The exterior looks great, but the interior is a big let down. In my opinion, they got the important stuff right & the interior can always be detailed.

This is supposed to be the car that Dan Gurney drove (& pushed over the finish line...was leading, ended up 2nd, but was DQ'd) at the 12 Hours of Sebring...but that car is RHD, while this is LHD. This car also doesn't have the "Gurney bump" over the right door that is barely visible in the 1st racing pic. So, I don't really know what this car is...but I do like it...so much so, that it's probably one of my favorite buys this year. Its also available in red, black & this blue...without numbers.

Nice add Gavin! Is it true to scale? I don't about the real GT40's... are they really small?

It looks really well done for the price point. I can live with the interior, but the rear tires seem a tad too large, no?

I haven't measured it, but it is a tiny car. The roof was only 40 inches off the ground (hence the name GT40).

The interior sucks, but it really doesn't bother me, as you can barely see it anyway & the exterior looks so good, In my opinion. The rear tires are large, but from what I've seen, the Exotos look about the same.
