I agree. I have yet to come across a 1:64 scale '65 GT350 that is as nice as the HW 100%. That was one of the Jay Leno pieces if I remember correctly. They tried to use the same casting to do a black '66 GT350H, but that was an innacurate casting for several reasons. They also make an excellent Shelby Cobra, Shelby Cobra Daytona, and '67 GT500 from that line. The best detailed '67 GT500 ever produced in 1:64 scale is from Mattell (Hotwheels) Legends two car series. This set had a 1:24 Blue '67 GT500 and a 1:64 white '67 GT500. The white '67 GT500 in 1:64 scale has a beautifully detailed base for the scale.... not to mention the jeweled headlights and tailights, opening hood with nicely detailed engine, and nicely done tampos.It depends on the casting. One of my favorite 100% HW's, the 65 Mustang GT-350 in comparison to the same car from GL would absolutely blow it out of the water. Detailed under carriage with an actual engine like you would expect in a mid to high end 1/24 car. I've got a number of both cars in my collection, but which ones better? I really think it depends on the car.
The greenlight car pictured in the post was from the auction block series. They made the car to be a match to the one that went across the auction block, not an exact factory replica.That comparison really shows how badly Greenlight missed the mark on their '69 BOSS 429. at least HW & JL got the hood scoop right.
I have all three, but not opened. This comparison shows me, at least,
That I should have left the GL hanging on the peg.
Nope the red one is the greenlight. Ill post a pic of it in the package, I am a GL mustang fanatic, i have every mustang GL has made except one. The blue one is not the GL. So looks like GL got it right03silvergt, i believe the red stang with red scoop is a JL and the blue stang is a GL. So looks like JL got it right. As for the black scoop, they sure did com in black, spoiler and all. You have to remember back then, when you ordered a car, you could order it the way you wanted with the extra goodies.

Bet you wish they still had it. I wasnt questioning the shape. Im sure its not right. I know 69-70 had the same scoop, i was just saying in 69 which is what all three cars claim to be, black wasnt an option. Id say GL missed the mark the least out of the three if you consider all the indiscrepanciesThe 1969 & the 1970 BOSS 429 used the same hood scoop,
and the shape is where I question, not the color.
its too round in the rear, to arched in the opening.
it's just the shape, the opening.
I know too. My Family owned one. a real one.
