About This Product:
Authentic Collectables are very proud to present the 1:18 Scale Ford Performance Mustang GT driven by Dick Johnson in the Ford Performance 'Parade of Champions' at the 2019 Adelaide 500.
Everyone was excited to see how the new Ford Mustang GT Supercar would perform on debut at the 2019 Adelaide 500 but perhaps no-one more so than Dick Johnson because aside from being a team co-owner with two new Shell V-Power Mustang's competing that weekend and all the nervous anticipation related to that, he was also getting back into the driver's seat of a #17 Mustang Supercar for demonstration laps as part of the Ford Performance 'Parade of Champions' alongside Marcos Ambrose in a Mustang NASCAR and Scott McLaughlin in a road going Mustang.
In the lead up to the event, the 5 time Australian Touring Car Champion was enthusiastic and his usual humorous self about the prospect of jumping behind the wheel of a fully fledged Supercar once again;
“When I was approached with the concept, the first question I asked was ‘what’s the lap record?’. But seriously, it’s been a long time since I’ve been behind the wheel of a full-spec Supercar, and to get the chance to drive the new Mustang is something I’m very much looking forward to,” said Johnson.
“Scott and Fabian have been saying plenty of great things about the new car, so it’s going to be an honour and a privilege to once again hit the track in Adelaide, for the first time in nearly twenty years. Doing it alongside Marcos and Scott is just the icing on the cake.”
Come race weekend, the Ford icon was suitably impressed after cutting his first laps and couldn't resist on comparing the old cars to the new.
"These guys don't know how lucky they are, they've got it pretty easy to be quite honest. The way the car feels and handles, it's pretty hard to get a real gauge in a couple of laps. But boy oh boy, it has plenty of grunt, a lot more than what we had and certainly they stop extremely well. As far as kerbs and that, there's no such thing. When you run over a kerb it's like running over a pebble!"
Over his remarkable career, Johnson raced some of Ford's most iconic race cars in Australia and experienced a tremendous list of achievements. He's a legend of the sport, so there's obviously little comparison to a competing in a fully fledged race in the prime of your career versus demonstration laps well into your racing retirement but it's fair to say that Johnson's experience at the 2019 Adelaide 500 would be fondly remembered by not only him, but his legion of fans who witnessed it.
And very few could deny, it's always nice to see a Ford Supercar with the #17 and the name Johnson on it!
Don't miss this 1:18 scale model which has been produced by Authentic Collectables in high quality die-cast with detailed interior and fully opening parts in a limited edition of 1200 with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity signed by Dick Johnson.
For Future Release Model Cars:
We have A LOT of future release model cars listed on this website and it's not uncommon for these items to take anywhere between 6-18 months to arrive.
If you're interested in ordering/buying these models then you have two options available to you:
Pre-Order Model Cars At Your Local Stockist:
If a model car is marked as a future release on our website then please enquire about placing a pre-order with your local model car / hobby stockist as soon as possible.
Please note, all stockists are seperate businesses to Authentic Collectables, we are suppliers to them. Each stockist has different ways of how they accept pre-orders for future release models.
To find your local Authentic Collectables stockist, please click here.
Register Your Interest For Model Cars Here On Our Website:
You can also register your interest for future model car releases online with us to be notified when they are released.
To do this you need to navigate to the product page of the specific model you're interested in.
Once you're on the model product page, please click on the black 'Register Your Interest' tab which should appear on the right hand side of your screen on each future release product page on our website, enter your email in the relevant section and submit the form.
When the model arrives in stock you will receive an advanced email notification from us letting you know that it is in stock with a link to complete and pay for your order while stock lasts.
Please ensure your email address is right before submitting the register your interest form. Unfortunately a confirmation email isn't sent when you register your interest for models on our website, the only time the system will email you about that specific model will be when it arrives in stock.
We offer this option due to the amount of time models generally take to produce (usually 6-18 months) so you're not out of pocket until the model actually arrives.
For Future Release Prints, Books + Other Products:
Depending on the type of product or brand, we also offer a paid pre-order option on our website.
If a product is available for paid pre-order on our website then you will be able to add it to your cart and purchase it like any normal in stock item.
Details about the pre-order will be listed at the top of the product description if it’s available and when we expect it to arrive in our warehouse.
A paid pre-order option will only ever be available on our website for products that aren’t models - we usually use this feature for prints, books and other non-model products.
We offer the paid pre-order option online with us for these products because we can predict production and shipping times more accurately and are usually much faster than the model cars to produce.
Of course, if you wish to order these items from your local stockist, please make an enquiry with them.
For All In Stock Products:
If a product is in stock then it should now be available at your local Authentic Collectables stockist or you can shop online directly with us and it will usually be shipped on the next business day unless otherwise stated or it's a holiday period.

Shipping rates are calculated during the checkout process based on what you're ordering and where you're shipping it to. Add the items you want to your cart, and go through the checkout process to view the rates. You can see the shipping rates prior to final payment for the order.
