Shelby Wheels- Which Kits Contain Them & Which Are Nicely Done?
Posted 06 November 2012 - 01:02 PM
I know of the 1/25 AMT '68 Shelby GT500 kit and it's wheels, but I don't know how good they are:
The 1/24 Monogram '70 Boss 429 Mustang 2'n 1 and 3'n1 kit contains a set of Shelby (at least I think they are) wheels, which are nicely done:
The 1/25 AMT '67 Shelby GT-350 contains yet another variety of Shelby wheels, but again, I haven't seen these in person, so I have no idea if they are accurate:

Could you take a close up shot of one wheel, please, Roger?
Yeah, I can get you one tomorrow of the wheel exactly as it comes from the kit.

Note how the spokes cant downward from the center of the wheel.
At one time a place called GMP carried 1/24 scale versions of the wheels and tires that Ford put on these Shelby Mustangs.
Unfortunately, they don't seem to be available anymore.

I have to agree with Roger, the AMT 66 Mustang has a very nice set of Shelby ten spoke wheels as of the last reissue. I have not seen inside the latest release to see if they are still there.
They are still included in the AMT '66 kit.
It looks like the AMT 1/25 '66 Mustang has the (only?) correct '68 Shelby wheels.
I've seen the Cragar/Shelby '65 GT350 wheels posted on the forum before, but I'm not sure which kit they were included with:
The Monogram Boss 429 2'n1 and 3'n1 kits' wheels look like the '66 Shelby 10-spokes:
