Nice shot, great looking cars... I think mine was a 36D though... Did they come with both small and big block 'chrome' motors?

Hey, Noose, what was the difference with the "concourse" bodies compared to the regular ones?

Back then lots of extra detail. Now it is always there. C'mon, I was 16 then.

Bob, only the very first ones came with the 16D motors; it was shown in the ads, and in the first article on these cars, but it must not have lasted very long, because all the ones found have been with the two types of 36D motors. 

 

Philippe just added some info on a thread about this very question - I think he's looking for a MIB version of the 16D car for the museum.

My 1/24 GT40 had the 36D. We were about two years behind the west coast back east so I doubt we ever say the 16D versions.

Thanks, I would have guessed the 36D came first then the 16D... but that would've been the 150.

 

With the heavy body maybe the 36D... :mosking: handled better. :mda:

This contest never came about because Fireball died as a result of complications from a racing accident around the time this ad ran.

Did any racer ever get their prize of a new car back then?

Yep, Aurora ran four or five of these competitions, with the final on a national TV show each time, even on the Tonight show one year. Another one was on What's my Line? with Stirling Moss as race marshall - there are some clips on YouTube I believe, and I got a compilation DVD with clips some years ago via ebay. 
 
Bob, I think the '64 championship did go ahead, despite the death of Fireball, because I entered the race at my local hobby shop, and pretty sure there was a final that year. Still have a Mustang tie tack (remember those?) somewhere...

The "the" is actually perfectly legitimate there - English often has many different grammatical possibilities, and no academy... 

 

About the '64 championship, just found this on the Net, on a site called SlotcarAcademy - haven't double checked yet, but it sounds right - and I still didn't make it to the nationals, or the regionals, or the municipals, or past the door of the hobby shop - and that's why I've always hated Mustangs! 

 

In-store racing competition

Beat the Champ was an in-store racing competition in 1964. The tracks were based on Ford's Dearborn, Michigan, test track. A celebrity should record a fast lap and the public was invited to beat that time. The Ford Mustang was chosen as the official competition model. It was allowed to tune the model but not to modify the car. Unfortunately something went wrong. The chosen champ was the Nascar driver Glenn "Fireball" Roberts. Just after the start of the Beat the champ competition the driver crashed at a 600-mile race in North Carolina. The car got fire and the Roberts burned over seventy percent of his body. He was not wearing a fireproof suit. The Aurora champ died five weeks after the crash.

The concept of the competition was changed and the race of four finalists (local winners) was organized at the Steve Allen Show (I've got a secret, Sunday, November 14, CBS) on national television. The host Steve Allen, the famous driver Stirling Moss and four referees had a close look at the race of the four talents. The winner won a Ford Mustang and a $2,000 college scholarship.

There are many benefits from being involved in Scouting and in 1963, being eligible to enter this contest was another one.
