Carrera Ford GT Daytona 2019 1/24th
#1

A preview of the upcoming 1/24th release expected in the shops in November.

Ford ran two different throwback schemes on its cars at Daytona.
The #66 GT LM ran in the red-and-white stripes seen on the Motorcraft-sponsored Roush Mustang that scored a GTO victory at Daytona in 1985.

Ford Chip Ganassi Racing, even the mechanics got into the spirit by growing throwback 1980s mustaches for the race...

The flag-bearer for Ford’s international racing efforts the last four years, the GT earned its place in the history books in 2016 when it won France’s 24 Hours of Le Mans GT-class in its maiden effort — 50 years after its legendary GT40 forefather shocked the world by beating Ferrari for the overall win at the 1966 race.

Since then, the mid-engine, carbon-fiber GT — the most advanced sports car to ever wear the Blue Oval — has raced across the globe in the IMSA Weathertech and World Endurance Championship winning 19 races and taking home the prestigious IMSA Manufacturer’s Championship in 2018. It has also helped sell 1,350 production model GTs for princely sums starting at $500,000 to buyers eager to own a piece of history.

Sadly the Ford GT program came to an end in Dec 2019.

This is the original 1985 styling that inspired this livery:
