If you’re a diecast model collector and love the classic Ford Mustang, feast your eyes upon this gem by Acme Trading Co. This 1968 Shelby GT350 Ford Mustang looks like the real deal just on a much smaller scale – 1:18 to be exact.

This particular Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 features a brilliant yellow paint that was designated as WT6066, one of six rare Shelby colors sprayed on 1968 models. These six rare “WT” colors only graced 159 actual 1968 Shelby GT350 cars total.

If interested in ordering one of these Shelby Ford Mustang model diecast cars in either GT500KR or GT350 form, production quantity is expected to be as low as 750 units with just two colors running at the same time.

These cars will be released over the course of production from the entire Shelby lineup. That means while certain Shelby models are in the process of production, other Shelby GT350 Ford Mustang models will be interspersed, and introduced in intervals.

The estimated production is 996 pieces with an estimated date of late June or early July. So, if interested in getting your hands on one of these sweet things, pre-orders can be submitted ASAP. Check out to preorder and check out some of the other current diecast models available to you.
