WT 6066 Special Yellow Shelby GT-350

1:18 Scale





350j_cc copyThe second in ACME’s “WT” color series is this handsome 1968 GT-350 in WT 6066 Special Yellow. Externally the GT-350 varies little from its big block brother, save the name in the sill stripes and the absence of the “Cobra Jet” logos in the snake badges on the fenders and the flip-open gas cap. This pre-production sample’s very glossy “Special Yellow” paint has just traces of orange peel, but that should be smoothed out on the production pieces.





350i_cc copyLifting the hood displays the accurate blue 302 V-8 complete with ignition wiring (that includes battery cables), coolant hoses and other plumbing, printed data plates, and the correct Cobra-branded engine components. Shelby’s cowl brace is there, too.



350k_cc copyInside, the presence of just two pedals indicate an automatic transmission (early GT-350 owners would shudder!) but this small block matches the GT-500 point for point on scale detail and accuracy.
