Most people that own a Ford GT are generally in their 40s to 50s (depending on earning potential), however the company who manufactures these beautiful cars recently tightened the age gap; allowing kids under the age of 12 years old who attended a Detroit car show an opportunity to walk away with their very own Ford GT.
Ford handed out built-it-yourself, limited edition, Ford GT supercar kits, and gave them away to young kids who recently attended Detroit’s 2016 North American International Auto Show and swung by the company’s stand there. Revell produced the kits, marking the third time in three years that both of these companies have partnered up in such a project. Other past ventures include Raptor and Mustang kits.
Mark Bentley, licensing manager, Ford noted that model kit program with Revell has become a fun annual tradition at auto shows. He also stated that providing kids with a kit to create ‘their own Ford GT’ offered a fun opportunity to introduce them to company and create new Ford enthusiasts.
Brian Eble, vice president, marketing, Revell chimed in, stating how much his company has always enjoyed building Ford products. He added that, Ford’s iconic models make them an excellent brand to reproduce; whether you are talking beginner model builders or master builders, the Ford designs are always a subject matter that is sought after as it relates to scale plastic model kits.
MSN reported that the Ford GT model kits have 14 pieces that can easily be assembled within minutes, and showcases on the undercarriage, a limited edition auto show logo. A detailed 28-piece kit will be offered at retailers and online in April of this year, for the price of $14.99 USD. This is sure to be a popular item for kids, and older Ford GT fans alike.
