   Too:  mach 1 1970,    I will try and post some pictures of my  1/12th  #2  G.M.P.  GT-40  in the next couple of days, I'm not much of a techie guy and I still miss my old Ford bag phone !   L.O.L.   I'll have my wife give me a hand on posting the pictures.  I also have about 8 ,  1/18th Daytona coupes and about 3 , 1/18  GT-40 by Exoto that are very cool !  Also another great  Diecast maker is "Exact Detail" . I have two of their racing white shelbys, (Christi Edelbrock) is one of them, and then there is a blue Mark Donahue Shelby.  If you like the GT-40s, like I do, you would have loved being at the GT-40 reunion a few years back that was held at Road America,Elkart Lake,WI.  I was there, and I took alot of pics of the bundle of snakes and Awesome GT-40 that were displayed . While I was there I was lucky enough to get Bob Bondurant  to sign my  1/18 Daytona coupe by Exoto, the car had the same number on it that Bob drove way back when ! While there, I also was lucky to purchase the book "Go Like Hell" and have the Authur sign it!

Hey, Mongosse 

I look forward to seeing some of your collection. Some years ago a guy sold me 12 exact detail mustangs with boxes . He got them as a gift over the years. I didn’t have room to display them so I sold all but the ( Christi Elderbrock ) model.... that was my favorite. Exact detail is one of my favorites for that price range. I have the Shelby GT 350 signature edition Franklin mint with all the stuff that came with it. I swear there are ton boxes the car is packed in. See below. Really well proportioned for a franklin mint .....probably their best one they did. I’ll post a few more later  

Exoto is one of my favorite brands and have been buying their models over the past 20 years. I used to buy a  group of cobra cars on sale . Then turn around and sell (ebay) all but one and the profit helped pay for the one I kept . Can’t really do that anymore. I have some 1:18 Ford GT40’s and my favorite is the Ford GT MK lV in 1:18  scale . Pictures later .

Hey Mongoose. The Ford Gt 40 by GMP 1:12 scale is really a fine detailed diecast. Thanks for posting and got to study them some more. Im looking at some GMP models on ebay now  

Thanks. Mike

 To: mach 1 1970,   I just took a look on E-bay at some of the GMP  1/12th  gt-40 diecast and I could hardly believe the  increase in the value of the  #2 black gt-40!  ( Good if you have one, not so much if you don't )! LOL.  The Lane Exact Detail #70 shelby didn't seem to bad of a price .  Anything probably under $100.  isn't too bad if you don't already have it.  But now that I think about It, I paid a lot less then that for the Shelby Collectable #70 Shelby.  The GMP, Lane Exact Detail, and Exoto Diecast are some of the best out there for the price!  And I own my fair share of the Exotos.  I even have a 1/12th  Moto Max  gt-40 in the gulf colors on my lower end.  Enjoy displaying your new 1/10th Exoto gt-40 #2 diecast because it is a awesome edition to your collection!

Mongoose:  I’ve looked at many Ford GT MK IV diecast models over the years. Detail is very important but proportions to me are the most important. Here are 3 Ford MK IV’s diecast cars scale 1:18 and 1:12 . Look @ the proportions of all three cars. Compare them to the actual photo of the ford GT MK IV  

1st one is 1:12 GMP  

2nd  Actual car 

3rd  1:18 Shelby collectibles 

4 th  1:18 Exoto 

Imo the 1:12 GMP is a fine diecast

The last two pictures you can compare the 1:18 exoto picture 2 to the real deal picture 3 . The exoto is off a little  on the side window area and the side scoop area right behind the door. Didn’t realize how much wheel well opening there is on the rear of the real GT. That’s a lot of space. The proportions seem to be pretty good otherwise.

GMP looks pretty good compared to the real car. In the 1:12 scale I think the GMP proportion wise is slightly better then the exoto 1:18 ....I do not own one though. Need to pick one up someday

 To: mach 1 1970,   The pics of the Ford GTs are awesome. I especially like the yellow #2 , GMP and I have  the #3 rootbeer color GT in 1/18 by Exoto but it doesn't have a number on it , just has the white stripes. I did see what you meant by the window being a little off on that GT.  As far as quality and detail on the different brands, I would rate in order first to last for quality and detail : GMP, Exoto , Lane (Exact Detail), Shelby Collectibles.   The Exoto 1/18th Shelby Cobra Daytonas are pretty cool too!  I don't remember if you said you had any models of them. I don't know if you like Corvettes, but I also have some of Exotos 1/18th Grand Sport corvettes in both coupe and convertible and they are some awesome looking diecast!   Also I have a picture that I took in 2009 at Road America of the real #2 black GT-40 and at that time I think it said it was owned by George Stauffer.  I also took a picture of the #1 Ford GT among others.

Yes I do have a blue exoto corvette grand sport . I also had 5 cobra coupes years ago and sold them all. Bought them on sale from exoto......Package deal. I’ll post a few pictures of the Shelby GT 350 by Franklin mint. Keep the pictures coming. I’m retired so I have time to fool with these models. Sorry for the double post but this new format takes time to get used to . I will say picture posting is much better . 

Thanks. Mike

Can I play? I know it's not a Shelby or Mustang, but it is a Ford I just recently acquired. 1:18 scale by Autocart. Every since I was a kid, I have always wanted this car.

Technical difficulties... text didn't appear in my above posting.  Just a few photos of a car similar to one of my favorites as a very young boy.  You might notice rather than the blue and white Chevy on which I ripped up many a sidewalk my current car has painted custom graphics and blue dot tail lights as well as some awesome side pipes! It was a gift from my Better Half for a milestone birthday nearly 15 years ago. :shift: I know I'm spoiled.

 Denstang 65: My wife and I were looking at your picture of your Ford and we were trying to figure out what model of Ford it was because it was very customized and the front end and also the hood looked kind of different! So it turns out to be a Ford XB Falcon Black Interceptor. It is definitly a different animal than I'm used to seeing.  When I first started collecting diecast,  which was over 40 years ago Autoart was a pretty inexpensive diecast maker.  I saw yours advertised on ebay for between 240.00 and up to around 440.00 which is a pretty wide spread. Thats a lot more then I would want to spend! My wife would kill me if I did that!:drop:  Have fun collecting and enjoy your cars, I know I did!:headspin:

I have been looking for a GMP car # 1 red ...scale 1:12 Ford GT MK IV model on ebay. People are paying $1300+ for these models. People need to do a little research before they spend that kind of money.  FYI...Acme co with funding from green light bought out GMP back in 2011. Acme responded to my email today and will be making the Ford GT MK IV scale 1:12 again for $599. They said it should be here around July. That’s the red car # 1 that won LeMans in 1967.  I’ll wait and save some money and buy one of those. So basically GMP 1:12 Ford GT  models will start showing up again for us ford fans. Yeah. 

Look @ that little kid getting his first look @ that beautiful Ford GT. Priceless. My 3 year grandson Loves to point out muskangs. That’s how he pronounces them.

 That little boy with that look on his face looking at the Ford GT is exactly how my little Grandson looks at my custom peddle car every time he comes over! LOL :shift:   I didn't know about GMP being bought out by Acme Co.   But its very cool that you found out about them making new 1/12th scale Ford GT.  I hope the quality of their diecast will be at least as good as GMP brand was!  If the quality is there on their 1/12th it should bring in  $599.00.  I know that back in 2009 I think I paid around $350.00 for mine when it first came out! I  guess will have to play the game of wait and see what they come out with!:cool:

Hey mach 1 1970:  That's a nice looking model of a Mustang GT4 sitting on the hood of your 2007 Black/ Silver Shelby GT and right by that cool , (Carroll Shelby signature)! :clapping:I have a promotional card from Ford Racing that has a picture that looks somewhat like the model you made! Its a 2008 FR500S and its the same color of yours and it has a huge adjustable rear wing and it is a complete race-ready car that was competing in the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge for the Miller Cup.  This car had a Total MSRP of $75000.:shift:   I see by your list of your previous cars, that you once owned a 2005 Ford GT.  I know of a couple local guys that have them, and boy has the price gone up on them in the last couple of years.  I talked to a gentlemen at the IOLA car show and swap meet this past summer who was the original owner and he said he made about 200,000. dollars over what he originally paid for it! :yahoo:I was talking to a gentlemen the other day about the new FORD GT and I said I heard Ford was selling them only to people that meet Ford's  expectations, and also they have to sign a contract not to sell it for two years.  I told him that I thought they were selling in the 400,000. to around 500,000. range.  He then said he had heard through the( grapvine)LOL , that one will  be sold after the 2 years are up and it will bring well over  1 000,000. Now, there's an investment if you got the money and the clout!:happyfeet:

Hey Mongoose.......Yes the Ford GT has gone up in value and I made out real well. Last picture of GT.

Back to diecast and here is the Franklin mint scale 1:24 ...1965 Shelby GT 350 signature edition. Lots of extra stuff like keychain ,display case with plastic cover and paperwork.  Imo this is the finest diecast that Franklin mint has ever produced. Proportions and details are spot on  

Hope you all enjoy. Had to downsize pictures in order to post and results are a little blurry...sorry !

Franklin mint 1965 Shelby GT 350 continue pictures. The engine compartment is Nicely detailed. There are a few listed on ebay for $1500 to $2000 signature edition with all the many boxes and accessories. Beware of fake ones without all the boxes, accessories and missing the info underside identifing it as an authentic signature model.

 To mach 1 1970:  Very cool looking GT350, Mike!  I have lots of diecast, but I don't think I have any Franklin Mint ones! I see you also got that cool (Carroll Shelby Autograph) on the trunk!  Does your model have that cool Plexiglass back window that was used on some of the race models for better air flow ? I couldn't tell for sure from the pictures.  It's kind of De ja Vue  that you just posted this because just the other day when I was at the grocery store I ran into another Shelby friend of mine who owns a 65GT350 tribute car that looks just like your model! He built it from the ground up, and you can't tell it's not a original Shelby from looking at it!:clapping:I always wanted to own this car!:happyfeet:  He told me he has owned it for about 20 years and that he has already turned down over $60,000. for it!  He drives it hard, and it "goes like Hell!" :shift:  I'll try and post some more diecast in the near future Mike!:)

 Talk at  Ya,  Later!

The Exoto's are the best no doubt but their pricing just got absurd. The best 1:18 diecast was Hwy 61 when they were doing them then they disappeared but I heard they could be coming out

 

I mentioned this awhile ago but I had no idea I would run into this delay trying to move so when I am done I will final get to unpack my 1:18 Mustangs which will blow your mind. 

If anyone has rare models they want to sell and rare meaning just that like dealer only and or employees only and such like these let me know

  I agree with you that Exoto Diecast makes some of the best models out there, and I also agree with you that they got way to pricey for me! I've been collecting 1/18th scale diecast for more than 40 years.  I own many that are made by Exoto. Examples are: many Daytona Cobras, some Ford GT-40s, also some very cool Grand Sport Corvettes in both coupe and convertible. Some of the Exotos I have, I ordered in their special paint colors, like (Daytona Paradise)!  I also have some 1/18th (Lane, Exact Detail) mustangs that I think are really cool! I also collected some 1/12th diecasts that are cool!  Plus I've collected many, many, Hot Wheels, Johnny Lighting, American Muscle, and a ton of other cool  Automobile stuff. I could probably almost start my own diecast store,lots of auto related stuff and collectables.  My crown jewel in my Diecast is a 1/12th scale ,  #2, black/white, Ford GT-40,  that was made by: GMP !  This GMP is simply: (Awesome)!:yahoo:  I've more than enough diecast and other collectables, and will probably downsize in the future!:(

Can’t wait to see some of your mustangs in 1:18 scale.  It’s always great to see some models for the first time. In my previous post I said Acme will be producing the Ford #1 red GT MK IV that won LeMans in 1967. From what I can gather it will be the exact car the GMP produced in 1:12 scale. Since they are like 30 miles from me I will just pick one up. 

On a sad note we lost a great driver recently....Dan Gurney and this was the car ( ford GT  MK IV ) that he and AJ Foyt won LeMans in  back in 1967 Dan Gurney drove so many different race cars and won with them all. He was one of the most talented race car drivers of all times. Too much to cover in this post . Saleen did a mustang Dan Gurney edition and they are collectible today.  

Does anyone know if there was a diecast made of this blue mustang ( Dan Gurney edition) that Steve Saleen produced back in 2008 ?
