Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Ford GT40 Mk2 1st Le Mans 1966 Most images of the winning Ford from Le Mans in 1966 show it on Goodyear tyres, but here it is rolling on Firestones. Although Ford were contracted to the former, Bruce McLaren had a Firestone deal and opted to start the race on their wet tyres as they offered better performance. Once the track began to dry, it was back to normal. What is not correct is the wheels, once again we see an Ixo Mk2 wearing the wheel design of the following year’s MkIV. The shape is instantly recognisable but the roof-line is a little low in proportion to the body. The decoration is excellent though, with a deep gloss paint finish, well placed decals and neat quick lift points front and rear.
Well finished die-casts of varying levels of accuracy. Some very good, others (mostly Ferraris) not. Made in China
