A new collector might think that there is only one C2463 Ford GT40, the black No.2 car! – but there are three other variations of this car. One model may be enough to satisfy the collection but which model has been added to the collection?
To differentiate each model, Hornby Hobbies applies a suffix code so that the build specification is specific for the car and its end use. For example it may be a standard solo car, a presentation box or race set car. It may have different livery decoration details and, as is the case with this model, a ‘weathered’ livery finish.
The black, No.2, Le Mans 1966 podium finisher, C2463 Ford GT40 MKII has four different variants and they all have different suffix codes. In this case, the standard C2463, then C2463A, C2463AWD and C2463W. See the full explanation on my facebook page.
