M2 MACHINES Shelby Tribute
1:24/1:64 | $25/$5.99 each


Carroll Shelby’s legacy remains one of the strongest in automotive history. M2 Machines’ “Shelby Tribute” 1:24 and 1:64 first-gen Shelby 1965 Mustang GT350s celebrate the life of the legend, and each car wears the number “89” (Mr. Shelby’s age at passing), a brace of reproduced Shelby signatures on its roof, and the stylized “CS” logo on its haunches above the numbers “1923-2012.” ThThe 1:24 ’Stang has opening doors, hood, and trunk, and steerable wheels; under its hood there’s a Paxton-fed Cobra 289 that’s been moderately wired and plumbed. ThThe caged interior has the correct Shelby-specific instrument pod at the center dash, and a spare mounted under its rear window. ThThe cars all roll out in combinations of Guardsman Blue and Wimbledon White, with opening doors and hoods, sharp tampo mark- ings, and very well-done mag wheels with Goodyear Poly- glas tires. Each comes mounted to a display base, and offers a lot of bang for the buck – something Shelby certainly understood. Look out for the 89 clear-coated metal “raw” cars (1:24 pictured) that have been randomly slipped into the cases as they ship from M2’s warehouse. — Joe Kelly Jr.
