Danbury Mint / 1968 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet - "Al Joniec's" SS/E / 1:24th Scale
Scale 1:24; 7-1/2" in length.
Hot Rod magazine, “The Cobra
Jet will be the utter delight of
every Ford lover and the bane of all the rest because, quite frankly, it is
probably the fastest regular production car ever built.” The decision was made
to debut the Cobra Jet where Ford could get the most bang for their buck, and
take on the best the other manufacturers had to offer…the 1968 NHRA
Ford showed up at the Winter Nationals with a team of Wimbledon White Mustang fastbacks, all equipped with the brand new 428 Cobra Jet engine. One Mustang was entrusted to the skills of driver Al Joniec, and when the smoke cleared in the Super Stock Eliminator final, it was Joniec piloting his Cobra Jet to an astounding victory for Ford.
This exciting 1:24 scale replica, produced by GMP exclusively for the Danbury Mint, has all the bells-and-whistles of the original 2+2 fastback.
Vinny's Note: This local car campaigned out of the Rice & Holman Ford Dealership in Pennsauken, NJ and I saw it frequently at Atco Dragway. Badass!
