NEWS: Scalextric Ford Mustang "Pettey"

Scalextric Ford Mustang Boss 302
C3424, Trans Am, Paul Pettey and Richard Reventlow

It's raining Scalextric Mustangs and there's a good reason for that, this year is the 50th anniversary of the Mustang and Scalextric are celebrating in style.  For those of you that mightn't  be keen on the "Grabber Green" Boss 302 you're sure to love this maroon Stang.   Released last month, the black bonnet looks very cool, its almost a shame that this car couldn't be number 50. 

As previously mentioned, Scalextric Mustangs run very well on the plastic track so if you don't have one already, perhaps celebrate Mustang's 50 anniversary in style. 

This from Scalextric; 'In the 1970s, Paul Pettey and Richard Reventlow took six months to turn a showroom Mustang into a full‐fledged Trans Am racer. Not being experts, however, the first tech inspection at the track was a disaster, and the car was not allowed to race.

A few months later, however, they were ready to go. The car ended up racing in seven Trans Am Series races in the Midwest and on the East Coast. The best finish was 14th place. The car, now owned by Ken Adams, races in vintage Trans Am races during the summer months.'
