1:64 Scale Ford Mustang Cobra II

This post of mine is kind of a tribute to the late Farrah Fawcett who died a few weeks ago. During the late 70's I was hooked with her car, the Ford Mustang Cobra II that starred in the TV series "Charlie's Angels" which was for me at that time, one of the nicest car in that era.

And in my early high school days, my brother's classmate had one of these mustangs that fetch him in school, what an awesome car hehe!

Now here I am trying to revive those golden years of mine.

This is the 1:64 scaled diecast model by Johnny Lightning.

I have other Movie and TV cars in 1:64 scale that I would feature here in the future! Watch out for it!

This JL makes on Mustang Cobra is another good quality products. I can see a fine details such as side door handles and key lock embossed with the casting which very hard to find in 1/64 scales. Nice collection Mikes!! Like the way you handle the photograph taken.One word...Excellent!Farrah Fawcett and original Charlie's Angel is also my favourite tv show too.

I didn't like Charlie's Angels back then - I still don't - but I loved that Mustang!

My own personal remembrance of the car is that there was one for a few years parked down the street I grew up. I would always stop to have a look at it. Enthusiasts can argue that Mustang IIs aren't "real" Mustangs, but outside the U.S., and as seen through the eyes of a child, this was a very glamourous car.

JDMike's Diecast Site said...

yes sir, CHicks love the car! and I do too hehehe!
Its one of the glamour cars of the 70's! :-)


I like that Mustang, very retro.

RIP Farrah!
