1949 Ford Forty Nine Concept Coupe (1/18) (fs) Brand New in Mint Box

Limited Edition released molded in Midnight black.

The year was 1949.. After years of wartime sacrifice and sameness in durable goods, postwar America was ready for an automotive design revolution. The '49 Ford - with radically new "slab sides," integrated body and fenders, independent front suspension and rear quarter windows that opened - served as a symbol of optimism for the future. Fifty years later, an all-new Ford Forty-Nine custom coupe concept car is poised to repeat a bit of history, as it makes its world debut at the 2001 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The new Ford Forty-Nine concept is designed to take America on a "sentimental drag-race" down memory lane and underscore Ford's commitment to designing excitement into new cars comign down the road. The Forty-Nine concept harkens back to the romance of a Friday night at the drive-in, listening to rock and roll and cruising the strip in a chopped and channeled custom car.

J Mays, the Ford Motor Company Vice President of Design, said that "The inspiration for the Fort-Nine concept comes from the passion and excitement of the original, combined with the imagination of people across America who customized their cars and turned them into what they thought a really great car should be.The Fort-Nine concept melds together many of the custom car designs of the 50's as well as elegant cues and shapes from some of the Italian designed, Ghia concept vehicles of the 50's."

This limited edition diecast kit has been precisely replicated under the direction of the same Ford Design team that developed the show-vehicle. From teh stunning black exterior with chrome accents, to the 3.9 liter "Powered by Thunderbird" V-8 engine, to the tu-tone black and sienna interior trimmed in satin metallic silver, this replica will bring the passion and romance of American touring to life for every collector.
