Now I can be sure saying that Presicion 100, has the best value in 1:18 diecasts.
The details and quality you get for the price, are amazing

I wanted this Stang for long time, it's probably the most classic Mustang ever..
The shape, the convertible version, what a car! still have IT today, after 40 years

This is more than a great model, can't describe..you just need to get one of those presicions..

Here are selected photos, you can se all of them HERE!


















Can't wait to buy another presicion in the future, im watching on the T-bird....

:happy :danbana :tongue :woohoo :woohoo

Fantastic!!! Are you going to take the plastic off the wheels though? It looks far better without those plastic covers! :cheers

I was very lucky go get this fantastic model before gomotorbids was closed and I bought the blue one for a really great price! Once again, I am very sad for the gomotorbids, it is a huge lost for the die cast hobby.
ERTL Precision 100 Collectible did a great job with 1964 1/2 Mustang model, I think this is the ultimate replica for the legendary Mustang. I won't repeat the features once again, I think the pictures will tell you the all. Thanks for reading

I have had the red on red version of this P100 for quite a few years, and it really is an excellent model for the price. ERTL did a good job on the accuracy, although the chrome strip across the front edge of the hood was not used on the '64-1/2, and most of the '65 models. It showed up later in '65 and 66, especially on the GT version. I particularly like the hood hinges they put on this model.

I noticed that the door gap is a bit wider on your red one, though. Not sure why that would be. And, as I was looking at mine a little while ago I noticed for the first time the plastic still on the tires. I'm not sure at this point whether to take it off or not. In fact, I don't have any other diecast cars (in over 200) that had plastic on the tires. These are truly a bargain if they are still under $100. :)

I think there have been a misunderstanding; when I saw the title 1964 1/2 Mustang Convertible I just didn't need to open a new title and added my model's pictures to the title that had been present already. The red Mustang pictures belong to another user (mustangElenor), my model is the blue one.

Anyway, the best is to open a new title and share the pictures there

I don't know if you all saw this post about the P100 project by our administrator, but it is very interesting:

"Ford contracted The Beanstalk Group to create models for them for the Ford 100th anniversary, thus the P-100 name. After Ford was done with their celebration, the tooling was acquired by Ertl and made into the "Authentics" series. When Ertl quit making 1/18s, AutoWorld lease the tooling from them, so they are all the same tooling.
The Beanstalk Group is a marketing company and it is rumored that the factory that makes Minichamps and Biantes is who made the tooling for the P-100s. The P-100s do not say Ertl anywhere on them. Since Ford funded the expense of the tooling, these have been a great value as the tooling cost has not been rolled into the production cost. Some of the St. Louis versions sold for $19.99 for the longest time on eBay and all you needed was some NPR to make it look stock."

Wow this is an old thread, but it's nice to see it again!

Virtue- Actually, just recently (month ago) I also got the Blue Mustang too.
I'll buy the White too, If I'll ever see one for reasonable price.

I hope you find the white one
By the way I heard that ERTL had produced this fantastic model also in gold color but I have never seen a photo for that replica. So is that a myth?

I have a membership for a diecast forum in Turkey (diecastr) and that topic (I mean the gold colored 1964 1/2 Mustang Convertible made by ERTL Precision 100) was active once upon a time and I found a picture of this replica from the add of a member there (Mr.Burak Balikci) Here it is:

I have never seen it anywhere, neither on ebay nor some other online shopping site. Anyway, that color also looks stunning, it is a beauty
