Ohhhhhh, look what Auto World is doing.

Here is some news:



It is so nice to see the Auto World 1965 Ford GT back, and in eye-popping liveries nonetheless.  The Ford GT has been a favorite of AW collectors, but has not appeared since its debut a few years ago.


Well it is back with a vengeance.  The Gulf colors look best on a Ford GT, so this is most welcome.  Plain white with red trim is no slouch either.

Look for both in May.

  2. I've been waiting patiently for a Gulf version since this casting first came out. Now to find without paying a scalper.

  6. Authentic livery but not on correct GT40. I was really hoping AW would do a Mark II or IV but these do look nice.

  7. I noticed Walmart has been lacking with just about any AW and I hit three today; although one had about two left. I hit two TRU's and the one had a few, while the other didn't.
    Maybe they're going to load up soon, but I forget to keep looking for the inventory chart taped to the peg board above the shelves.

    1. Yeah, AW is patchy where I am too. It seems that whenever I do find it, it tends to be old inventory. I think I've probably had the most luck at TRU, but even that seems to be scattershot. I don't have a whole lot of hope of finding these on the pegs.
