'67 GT 40 Gulf Mirage
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, March 2, 2004 7:42 PM
I am getting ready to start the Le Mans Miniatures 1/24 kit of this car. However, it shows 2 cars that seem to be the same. The problem is that the #14 car is from 1967 and the #15 car is from 1973. I cannot seem to find a difference in the instructions. Can anyone point me to pictures for #14 car as I want to paint as it ran at Le Mans in '67. By the way it seems like a decent kit, however there is quite a bit of extra resin that needs to be cut and sanded off. Thanks, Rene'

I don't know which model that is, the site is not in english.

I invite you to view www.gt40s.com and search for "Mirage" there are pictures and info there that may help.

There is only one original surviving Mirage, the two other cars were reconverted to GT40 specification so any pictures of a car after 1967 should be of the surviving car.

Hope it helps.

Rene,

Yes it's me, I use the same sig on all sites.

If you go to www.clubcobra.com and look at my gallery there is a picture of my ugly mug in a car.
