My understanding is this never went to production and is very rare. Too bad. Great pieces. Just think if you'd win that auction you'd also have to fork over 22% for a buyers premium!

After almost two years (as an aside, it's amazing that I've been a HT member for that long - the time just flew by!), this set made a reappearance on E-Bay. This time I did not let it pass me by. It arrived yesterday. Here are some quick close-up shots:

#98 Ken Miles USRRC livery Cobra:


1966 LeMans winning livery (also driven by Ken Miles):


Back of the card:


Sorry, the photos are not the greatest. I will take some better photos eventally.
According to seller, there are 6 of these in existence.

Depends how you look at it. Miles was winning the race before he held up for McLaren to stage the famous "3 GT40's" photo. In spirit, the #1 car is the winner, even if #2 was the formal winner.

Shelby recently said he wished Ken had been first, as it was what he ment to see. Stating that Ken had deserved it. But in racing only the first car gets the W!
