Models for today - Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I don't have any Mexican-manufactured vehicles, that I know of. But I do have models of cars that raced there. First, cars from the Carrera Panamerica, a grueling race held from 1950-1954. These are the ones I have pics of.
But wait, there's more! These are the F1 models I have that competed in the Mexican Grand Prix.
Mattel Ferrari 158 NART, 2nd place 1964, but this clinched the Championship for John Surtees.
Ebbro Honda RA272, 1st place 1965, 1st win for Honda, and 1st win for Richie Ginther.
Ebbro Honda RA273, 4th place 1966.
And now for some tequila.....
These all look great ! Does anybody make the Panamericana Lincolns from the race ? All the big American sedans are real eye-catchers in their unexpected race liveries.
@mikedetorrice Someone in Europe is making resin kits I think, Lincolns and others. Forgot the name though.
Mr Daluco from Brazil, who posted here a while ago, maintains a site with Mexico and South American collections.
Many of the cars were produced in Mexico, The Ramblers and Jeeps particularly.
I noticed another manufacturer on the bay called Arena Models which appears to offer many of the '50-'54 Carrera Panamerica cars.
You have the M4 1900 which I don't have! But I have this Brumm 1900 from the 1954 race...
and some McGregor plastic Alfas, MADE IN MEXICO! (Ex-Politoy molds):
@karl Karl - M4 made a lot of CPA Alfas, but I chose that one because it won the 1.9L class in 1954.
