Details

This is a Oxford Diecast car in mint condition ( see photo ), the box is mint. These vehicles are made to the popular USA & European scale of 1/87 or railway HO. TThis has to be the most extreme of all the newly tooled Oxford American series to date in terms of authentic and extrovert �over the top' design and detail! Based on the original 2-door hard top coup�, the first release on this brand new model of the Mercury Turnpike Cruiser is decorated with black and pastel peach bodywork, a black roof and a gold trim strip incorporated into both rear trims, within which is printed the Mercury name. The extravagant colour scheme is further accentuated with a mass of chrome. The chassis and the interior are both black and the car is registered 4068 US 1957 Ohio. In real life, the Mercury Turnpike Cruiser, manufactured by the Ford Motor Company, was only built between 1957-1958 when it was superseded by the Mercury Park Lane. The car came as a 2-door and 4-door hardtop although in 1957, a convertible was produced which served as the pace car for the Indianapolis 500 of that year. The convertible was subsequently introduced as a production model. The Mercury Turnpike contained many unique features including the gold trim strip in the car's rear fin, which our Oxford model faithfully replicates.
