The evolution of the Shelby Mustang from racetrack brawler to luxurious boulevardier reached a major milestone in 1968 with the introduction of the GT500 Convertible. Powered by Ford's torquey 428 Police Interceptor mated to a C6 3-speed automatic, the GT500 was a sleek, sophisticated tourer that could hang with the toughest musclecars of the day. New from Acme Diecast is an exactingly detailed 1:18-scale diecast replica of the vaunted '68 GT500 Convertible, finished in iconic Acapulco Blue. Under the hood, you'll find a faithfully rendered 428 (complete with accurate Autolite battery) while the car's cockpit boasts a fully realized gauge cluster and charmingly replicated lap belts.
