The brand is New Ray. No wait it's Speedy Power? Both companies have a stamp on the bottom of the Challenger. The Shelby remains brandless. Both cars came in a set with a car transport truck. Which is branded as a New Ray. So that settles it? Anyway, here's the Shelby.

This is actually a pretty nice model considering it's not a really expensive piece. Hood and trunk don't open but the doors do.

Look at those sleek lines! This is not a pull back and go toy like a lot of 1/3- scale cars are.

Plastic headlights and taillights, vents and door handles are all molded.

The interior is a bit basic and could use some detailing but for a budget brand car, what else do you expect.

Overall a pretty nice model. Surprising detail and a fairly accurate casting of the 1:1.

Here's the Challenger.

I don't really care for this model quite as much if I'm honest. It doesn't really look like the '70 Challenger we see in pictures.

The steering wheel is really close to the floor here.

Headlights look awful small too.

The Shelby is nice but the Challenger not as much. If anyone would like these, I wouldn't be too opposed to trading them away. These are pretty old now but if you do stumble across a pack like this for cheap, it's worth the money because you do get a big model truck with it (mine is slightly broken).
