I have a friend who loves red '65 - '68 Mustang coupes. Does anyone make a large scale model of any of these year coupes?

Yes, there is a 1/16 scale 65 coupe on the market. I think it's by Monogram. The car on the box is yellow. I got one for a gift and gave it to a builder about 4 years ago to make into a MM clone. It still has the wrapper on it as far as I know.

Thanks, Alex.

My fault, I should have been more specific... I need a large scale (1/25 or larger) diecast, already assembled, '65 - '68 Mustang coupe model.

Uh........Thudster, 1/16 is large! It's a bunch larger than the 1/25th. The department stores all have assembled 64-66 die casts for sale everywhere also. $9.995 and up. Many different colors too!

Yup, 1/16th scale is big. I meant that I was looking for the diecast, already built ones. I haven't been able to find any coupes locally, only fastbacks and convertibles, so I was curious if they made any.

Dwayne,
Try E-bay. Lots of die cast models there. Mira by Solido has 1/18 black '65 coupe on the market. Also AMT has a 1/25 '65 coupe, but it has to be put together. Just a couple of ideas for you.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for being on the ball,Dave! Alex,that 1/16 car was made by AMT/Ertl. IIRC,the details aren't 100% accurate on it.
