Same here, I like the latter shots within the wooden crate.  Good contrast of color and light.

Great pictures!   :rolleyes: Too bad AUTOart does not release more of this great mold with correct wheels.

BTW, the first picture of the 1:1 is of a 68 and it is not a GT.   :tongue4:

OK, I'll bite.  How are the wheels not correct?  Those are not the right styled steel wheels from 67?

great shots.  AUTOart did such a good job on their 67/67 Mustangs.  I have the '68 Bullitt, but wouldn't mind adding this '67 as well.

OK, I'll bite.  How are the wheels not correct?  Those are not the right styled steel wheels from 67?

The space that follows the lug nuts should be solid so you should not be able to see the rotor behind it. Also a blue center cap logo would had been nice.

While they are correcting that:
-They should put chrome/black "GT" emblems on the side, not tape 'GT'.
-Put a correct '67 GT 3-prong gas cap and not the '68s ( actually the pop-open one would had been more correct as the model has several of the Exterior Decor Group).
-Put chrome wheel-well molding and not paint.
-Put the correct '67 air cleaner and windshield washer fluid bag. Items on model are '68s.
-Get rid of the carpet on the kick-panels, rear tray shelf and the trunk sides.

A great model by AUTOart, but perfect it is not, at least to the Mustang purist.

Few flaws and all, this is one of AUTOart tragic mistakes of not releasing this mold in more colors. There are 6 or 7 blues and 4-5 greens in that year that would look great.

That did bug me as well.  Still, one of Autoart's greats.  I have their red 68 and their black 71 Mach 1 ... and alot of their S197s.

Great looking pictures of a great looking model!  Flaws or not I have had one of these AUTOart stang's on my want list for quite a while.  I'll add my vote to more mileage out of this tooling.  Mustangs were one of the cars with such a plethora of options and colours and specs, why not make more of them.  As much as it sometimes gets old to see repaint after repaint instead of new tooling like highway 61 sometimes does it is also quite nice to get the choice of colour and options you really want in a model.  

Like Al said some simple repaints would go a long way, then tool up a 289 and a couple other wheel styles and you could stay busy for a long time.

Hi, in fact, the first photo, isnīt the GT 390, but it's the only pic at my web search for an golden '67 Fastback Mustang.

The model isn't perfect, ofcourse not, but it's near...   :lol:

I agree with "ACISNE", what he said it's true, and a purist should know it!!!

So, many thanks to everyone!!!

The picture of the 1:1 is of a 68 and not a 67 (note side marker lights and the missing twin scoops on the side).

This was my first Autoart model in the collection and with the features like flawless paint, great overall looking it is a very nice replika but where are the extras? Not moving seats, no suspension,etc... Sunstar Platinum is cheaper than AUTOart in Turkey but it offers much more features, so my first AUTOart was a little bit frustration for me.

Nice add Skotch, congrat !

Thanks for the nice photos.

The 390 c.i. (code S) was introduced in 1967; it was also the first year that the Mustang got american competition whit the Camaro and the Firebird.

No, Plymouth had the barracuda since April 1, '64 in the "Pony Car" market.

It was funny in the '80s and early 90's at Mustang shows, all the over-restored cars had 15x8 Magnums and the new owners would claim that they came factory. :gaah:

Perfect pictures. A stunning car aswell, it's nice to see this car in this brown. It doesn't always have to be black or red or silver.
