I have been wondering for a while about this.

Scalextric have first released the Mustang '69 and then the Mustang '70. But after that the model kit was only the '69 and every new livery of a Mustang has been the '69. I cannot see any particular reason for this - it seems to be a shame that since they have the 1970 mould - why not use it. I would certainly like to se at least a road version with lights in front and rear...

Additionally to that I would be really interested in the 1968 Mustang and then ofcourse the 1971 version as well.....

and the '67 and... and ... and oh yes the Mercury Cougar 1968... convertible

oh yes very nice indeed! - I have seen pictures of this prototype before. Hopefully it will actually be made - looks much more interesting then the current version of the mustang. And it sure would be nice to see this new version in slotcar version as well.


I guess that when it comes to any information about the Scalextric 1970 Mustang it is kept as some kind of industrial secret since they certainly have not given out any information about what their intentions are. But it really looks strange that they would leave a mold just after one (double) issue... It does not make any sense to me. Does anyone know anything about the Mustang 1970 and Scalextric - was there any information about its (sudden?) demise from the market?

Sorry Peter, can't help you on the 70 'stang issue, but the new one? Wow. I'd still fit some fatter rubber though and lower it slightly, maybe with a couple of up-and-over stripes in a contrasting colour too. I might even want to call it Eleanor

And a new Shelby Mustang is born ....


While we're on the subject; there's a new Shelby Cobra as well.



But I'm drifting off the slotcars topic too much now. Haven't got a clue why there's only one '70 model and still new '69s coming out. I hope there will be a cool street version as well, even as some more Camaro year models, and .... and ..... etc.

Looks more of a Betsy to me.
