Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Ford GT40 Daytona 1967 #11 Gulf Grady Davis, vice-president of Gulf Oil, took delivery of his GT40 road car in 1966 and soon started entering it for local races. Realising the advertising potential for Gulf, a deal was done to underwrite a campaign for the 1967 season and this started with that road car being prepared for Daytona where it was driven by Ickx & Thompson. The colours were slightly different to the later full race cars as a dark metallic blue was the original finish, but the orange stripe and Gulf logos made their first appearance. The decoration on the model looks very good and the paint finish is excellent. The vent on the rear deck is the wrong design for this outing, it was a louvred panel, but the other details looks pretty good.
Well finished die-casts of varying levels of accuracy. Some very good, others (mostly Ferraris) not. Made in China
