Greenlight Collectibles: Limited Edition 15-Car Route 66 Diecast Car Set

Greenlight Collectibles will be releasing in mid-November a 15-car “Route 66” tribute diecast set!

Seeing the image of the case above makes for a smart looking set imo!  The diecast cars will be packaged in a display Collector case (cardboard reinforced with two walls of plastic to help keep the cars in place) with a road map packaging that charts out the “Mother Road” through each of the eight states from Chicago to L.A.

This will be a limited edition set of just 4,260 units.  “All materials used are authentic with real rubber tires (cool!) and 100% die-cast metal body and chassis” – according to Greenlight.  These sets will be available for sale “mid-November 2010” for $64.99 MSRP (rounds out to about $4.33 per car) will be available exclusively at Toys ‘R’ Us, Toysrus.com and Toys ‘R’ Us Australia. Nice to see Greenlight share some collector love outside the U.S. – lucky Yanks and Aussies!

Many of the cars also are first time releases for Greenlight such as the 1964 Chrysler Convertible, 1978 Plymouth Trail Duster, 1988 Ford Mustang GT Stock and 2011 Ford Shelby GT 500 Convertible.

Here are the cars that are included in the limited edition:
