Update: Highway 61 18007 Steve McQueen's 1969 Chevrolet C-10 Baja 1000 Truck 1:18 Scale Diecast
Highway 61 has informed us that the much anticipated release of the 1969 Chevrolet C-10 Baja 1000 Truck in 1:18 scale will be in June.  After quite a few delays, we now have pictures of the actual diecast and it looks great!  The diecast features graphics of the original livery when the truck was driven in the Mexican 1000 Rally (Baja 1000).  It comes with a detailed interior, opening doors, hood and tailgate, spare tire, and a detailed engine compartment.  Like other Highway 61 releases it also features a rotating driveshaft and rubber tires.  Part number Highway 61 18007. 
The original truck comes with a lot of history.  The truck was prepared by Vic Hickey as a baja race truck and raced quite a few times.  Steve McQueen purchased the truck in 1970.  Under his ownership it was raced to victory at Riverside by off-road racing legend Mickey Thompson.  In 1972, McQueen sold the truck to fund divorce proceedings.  A employee of Vic Hickey purchased the truck and used it as a farm truck for many years before being restored.  The truck was sold at a Mecum Auction in 2013 for $60,000.
