1966 Ford Mustang Road Racing Car Model Kit

 

Monogram Shelby GT350-R

 

1965 Ford Mustang model kit

 

A Monogram 1965 / 1966 Mustang made into a rally style car.

This is the "R" version of that kit, though they make 3 or 4 different kinds of the same kit. This kit is one of my favorites, it's easy to build and the detail is very good.

On this kit I made modifications. I lowered the front end some, and radiused the front wheel wells. It has a 289 engine, which I wired and detailed some. The decals are out of different kits, some of them Slixx.

This "R" kit has a great set of rims. Also the correct front lower valance panel, no back seat, tower brace bar, and the correct rear window. (the rear window has a gap between the roof line and glass. On the real cars, that was to let heat out of the interior because the real race cars were so hot inside).

The other 2 versions of the kit are the Shelby stock version (also released as the black "H" Hertz version) and a convertible Pace Car version, among others. All the kits share some of the same parts, all are great kits.

A 1965 and 1966 are the same basically, though a '65 has small rear side windows, and on a 1966 the openings used louvers, probably to cut costs.

The car is painted with Testors Gloss Yellow and Gloss White.

A picture of this model mustang was in a Scale Auto Contest Annual.

An AMT Blueprinter altered wheelbase 1966 mustang.

I added the Tasca decals (I don't remember where I got them). It's painted with Testors metallic blue paint over a silver base.

This was a great kit. Though it's a bit basic, as these older kits were for their tme.

The picture and background are courtesy of Steve Jones.

This kit was recently reissued by The Model King, as the Brannon Bronco Mustang kit. And again around 2015 by AMT.

I don't remember any problems while building it, and for a drag racing subject (especially a Ford), it's dead on.
