Product Description: 1:43 Scale Dick Johnson Racing #17 Ford Mustang GT - 500 Rounds Celebration Livery - Designed By Tristan Groves

Limited Edition Number: To Be Announced

Product Specifications: Die-cast model, sealed body

About This Product:

At the 2023 Adelaide 500, Dick Johnson Racing became the first team to reach 500 Championship Rounds in ATCC / Supercars history.

A racer at heart, DJR started from humble beginnings in the wake of the now infamous rock incident at Bathurst in 1980 which is now part of Australian motorsport folklore.

With a newly built Tru-Blu Ford Falcon XD, Dick Johnson rolled up to the first round of the 1981 Australian Touring Car Championship at Symmons Plains in what would be DJR’s first official appearance as a team. He won that round and then a few more, including the season ending Lakeside round to seal the championship against his great rival Peter Brock - a pretty handy debut season for the team which also included a Bathurst 1000 win.

Fast forward over 40 years and the iconic Ford team has grown from a backyard operation into one of the oldest and most revered professional motorsport teams in the country with 10 drivers titles, 3 teams championships, 4 Bathurst 1000 wins, 148 race wins, 314 podiums and 154 pole positions.

Both Dick Johnson and his team are legends in motorsport.

To celebrate the 500 rounds milestone, designer Tristan Groves has created this very special model for fans of Dick Johnson Racing which combines characteristics reminiscent of the iconic 1981 Tru-Blu Ford Falcon XD applied to the 2023 Gen3 Mustang GT Supercar which the team races currently.

It's an awesome combination of both old and new.

This 1:43 scale model is scheduled to be produced in high quality sealed body die-cast with clear windows, detailed racing cockpit and undercarriage details unique to the Gen3 floorpan.

Comprised of roughly 65 individual metal and plastic parts plus anywhere between 50-100 steps in paint and decoration finishing, this is a high quality collectors model for fans of this scale.

It is scheduled to be produced in an exclusive one-off limited edition, presented in a display case with the model attached to a white base plate which features the car details printed on it. An individually numbered backing board featuring the edition number is also included as part of the package and acts as the Certificate of Authenticity for the release.

Once this model is sold out, it won't be available again.

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.


Product images used on our website may be of a real car photo, model car photo, mock-up, render, illustration, prototype or production sample and are used for display purposes only.

Please be mindful that the vast majority of products available from us are produced in limited edition numbers and will only be available while stocks last which is why it is very important to pre-order at a stockist (or here online where possible - see above) or register your interest for future release models.
