Pioneer Slot Cars News April
Pioneer slot cars are pleased to announce the release of two new liveries of the Mustang Notchback:
1967 SCCA Trans-Am Champion, Mustang Car #17
Diver: Jerry Titus
In 1967, Shelby’s lead driver was Jerry Titus, who had won an SCCA B-production national championship in a GT350R. Titus was both a hard-charging driver and the editor of Sports Car Graphic Magazine. By the end of the season he had won four races in his pale yellow #17 Mustang, making him the biggest contributor to Ford’s championship that year. He probably would have won even more races if he hadn’t had two major crashes.
Pioneer’s model of the Championship winning car of 1967, is based on the race livery as seen at Bridgehampton that year.
The model uses the same chassis seen on the previous two Notchback releases and is fitted with the powerful TYPHOON 18,000rpm motor linked to a 3:1 gear ratio in traditional sidewinder format.
This model comes with custom artwork box sleeve and also a Vehicle Data Card with facts, figures and info on the race car.
1968 Notchback Mustang, Red, Car #21
Driver: Tony Marcotti
Ref # P012
The popularity of the previously released Mustang Notchbacks demanded the quick release of the racing partner car to accompany the blue #22 car of Bill Maier. Specifications are identical to previous racing Mustang releases with TYPHOON 18,000rpm motor linked to a 3:1 gear ratio in traditional sidewinder format.
This model is released in specially designed artwork box over-sleeve.
Both of the above models will be available May 10th and pre-orders are open with many international online dealers from 19:00hrs GMT, April 25th.
