PremiumX 1965 Mustang 2cc

This beautiful 1965 Mustang coupe replicates the original 1:43 scale drawing from Ford’s circa-’65 Mustang sales brochure almost to perfection, while its ultra-thin, photo-etched badges and window moldings are better than the printed trim on Ford’s own 100th anniversary model. Every detail is there, and to scale; while the chrome trim around the fake front louvers wasn’t standard, it was available as an aftermarket part. The high-gloss paint is just a shade brighter than a “Rangoon Red” factory paint chip, and the crisply printed sill stripes would be correct for the aftermarket, as they’re missing Mustang lettering. Interior detail is complete, but confusing; two-tone door panels were part of the Décor Group that included two-toneseats and a woodgrain wheel,neither of which the model has… but, in 1965 almost anything was possible. The beautifully doneoptional styled steel wheels are complete with tiny ponies on the center caps, and there’s relief chassis detail on the baseplate, too. Giddyup. – WayneMoyer
