Shelby-philes used to have to pony up heavy bucks for a top-shelf replica of the 1966 GT40 that took the ’66 Sebring with Jerry Grant and Dan Gurney at the wheel. Not any more. While it’s a few hundred pieces (and dollars) shy of the parts count and price point of those mega-buck models, Shelby Collectibles’ 1:18 GT40 Mark II sports a mold set that will surely yield more winners at a substantially relaxed price point. True, it’s got some glaring glitches (like left-hand drive), but the Sebring car’s dark blue paint is deep and glossy; like the red and black non-liveried variations (also LHD), the model carries decent interior, engine bay detailing, and a solid level of cast and painted pieces under its bonnet and chassis. What it doesn’t carry is the sheer, jaw-dropping impact of those hyper-detailed high-enders. But if you’re looking to fill some holes in your collection, without blowing one in your holiday budget, we recommend you have a look. – Bill Bennett
