These MRRC Ford Mk.IV racecars are out of-production, but we found a few and they are on sale for just one week. No dealers.


MRRC MC11032 Ford MkIV, #4 LeMans 1967.

New Edition Series model with fully detailed body and interior including painted driver figure.Technical specification includes Sebring chassis (Inline configuration), Universal guide, SportFix braids, 21k rpm SlimLine motor, ClipFit chassis magnet (can be moved to 2 alternative positions or removed), detailed wheels and tires.

This car uses the MRRC/Monogram Sebring chassis. The Sebring chassis is an excellent universal 1/32 scale chassis for use with body kits and for kitbashig and scratchbuilding projects. It can be set up to handle well in both magnet and non-magnet racing. It has an adjustable wheelbase and is compact enough to fit almost any sports car, GT, or sedan body and to allow the use of wide wheels ad tires within even a relatively modest body width.

MRRC and Monogram cars using the Sebring chassis come with a variety of different wheels and tires. All of them use the same “slimline” motor which provides more than enough power for most home and club racing. They are ideal “donor cars” to provide a complete running chassis for the body of your choice at a cost often lower than purchasing the needed components separately.

The war will be right of his beautiful company.

It is an “evolution” version, fitted with an ABS injected chassis, especially created for this model. It is probably the longest car in LeMans’s story.

After the destruction of the MS640 in April 1969, the new Matra MS650 was manufactured in record time to be entered in Le Mans. It is equipped with a long rear hood called a “pedalo” which improves the top speed. There are 4 small air intakes in the front and the air extraction from the radiator has been remodeled. The exhaust pipes are integrated into the rear diffuser to create a venturi effect. Many “Zus” fascners appear on the body shell and headlights. The wheels are 5-spoke wheels with a central nut and the arch conforms to the regulations in force in 1969.

Matra Sport defines its racing colors and the yellow is reserved for the MS650. Since 1968, it is the Blue Seita Orly 915 that covers all Matra. Elf is the main sponsor, the blue Caltex is separated from the logo by the color of the car. The tires are engraved and stamped with Dunlop colors. All these details can be found on the 1:32nd reproduction of this car, driven by Jean-Pierre Beltoise wearing an open helmet with an integral visor.
