Just joined to get advice and hints from you guys about my collection.

My first question: On an Exoto 1/18 Ford GT40 Mk II, Gurney's # 2 Sebring car, there is the word "PRESS" instead of a serial number. The car is slightly different from the regular serial number cars, hood pins, headlight covers, etc. Is this a prototype or what? I just bought this beauty and think I got a hell of a deal if it's a "one of" or a rarity.

I would appreciate any input. Thank you!

:welcome: Welcome to DX.

Your GT40 sounds interesting, post some pictures when you can. The word "Press" is used on Exoto prototype samples, and pre-production models sent to the diecast "journalists" for a review...
It could be a one-of model but the Sebring Gurney GT40 has been produced later for the public. The rarest Exoto are the prototype models, or a model in a special color combination never released to the public.

Welcome from another old guy (not a Vet, and thank you for your service!).

We are most likely, however, contemporaries, and it sounds like you are into racers.

Nice start, with the "sample" Exoto.
