Mustang Shelby 68 Thomas Crown

Another movie car. The GT500 Shelby from the Thomas Crown movie. The kit is from AMT with removed top. The wheels ate the closest I could find watching the movie.

The TV show Gasmonkey also made a real replica.20190505_194244.thumb.jpg.e32b49945a331c7a349a29364fd1168d.jpg20190505_193855.thumb.jpg.0adcf908e78c0062ce977a1e4610aaf2.jpg20190505_193941.thumb.jpg.26ae7181771d70d1c713072b910174fa.jpg

Very nice.  The convertible is a tough conversion to do on this kit.   Motortrend has a good article about the original car which was a 67 GTA with 68 Shelby fiberglass.  The car pictured below is neither the original car or the Gas Monkey one but a tribute one made in 2015.  The movie car has two guages visible in the 2nd picture below which I had not noticed before.

Great looking Mustang. The first thing I thought of was the Gas Monkey car since I would see it so often when watching the show. All of the added trim looks just like the photos of the real car.

Cool! Great build! And thanks for the history lesson guys 😀 I have not seen the movie, only the GMG replica and never knew where the idea came from, liked the looks of it! Great!
