As part of the Mustang's 50th anniversary, die-cast model maker Automodello has inked a deal with Ford Licensing to offer 1:43 and 1:24 models of the 1962 Mustang I concept car.
Automodello provided us with photos of the model prototype, shown sitting on its base. The actual models will be mounted on a base that will include the Mustang 50th Anniversary logo.
Automodello expects to have the models in stock by December.
We've also learned that 50 versions of the 1:43 model will be signed by race driver Dan Gurney, who drove the real Mustang I during its debut at Watkins Glen in October 1962. These special editions are available for pre-order through The Henry Ford Museum or at the Automodello website at www.diecasm.com. Reportedly, 40 have already been spoken for.
