The amazing people at Replicarz are at it again. They have created three incredibly detailed Blue Crown Specials, in the 1:18 scale. Mauri Rose (1947, 1948) and Bill Holland (1949) drove these cars to victory in the Indianapolis 500. You will find these cars have every single detail from the actual cars that crossed the yard of bricks nearly 70 years ago.
Beautifully crafted in 1:18 scale by Replicarz, the body is resin cast, but the opening hood is stamped metal allowing access to the engine bay. By removing the real leather hood straps will reveal the fully wired and plumbed engine. Highly detailed cock pit with glass faced gauges, visible drive train, and gas/brake/clutch pedals. Accurate suspension components, wire wheels, and authentic race day paint.
The wood-look wheel features three chrome spokes and there’s a chrome gas cap behind the driver’s head. You will notice that Holland’s 1949 winner features the darker metallic blue finish. The steering arms and suspension are more detailed, with chrome and other metal parts, including rear disc brakes and calipers. The Firestone tread tires are just another example of how incredibly detailed the Replicarz brand is.
