Two of the rarest Pactra RTR cars now in the restoration process: the truly rare Ford MK4, this one the sole genuine example I have seen in over 20 years, and the Vulture. These are now being sympathetically restored, using their original chassis.
The Ford body is in excellent condition and was supplied by Lancer to Pactra, since Pactra had shut down their own body production in the last months of 1967. getting a Lancer Ford MK4 body is pretty easy, they are around. Having a genuine Pactra Ford MK4 RTR car is another story altogether, and hopefully, a better example will eventually show up...
The last series of Pactra cars had "iso-fulcrum" steel and brass-rod chassis with an aluminum brop arm bolted to the "Hemi" motor and all three models are scarce or in the case of the Ford, truly rare.
The decals used are fortunately those of the very first Competition Models Ford GT issued 2 years earlier, and the LASCM is lucky to have a stack of them. Once the decals are removed (the body is currently in a bath of water to loosen the old decals), the body will be carefully polished and new decals fitted.
The other two cars in that last series are a Lotus 40 and a BRP-Ford Indy car, both scarce models today. All three use the same chassis.
The BRP in its original box is the only example I have ever seen:
The Vulture is less rare as a clear body, but as a factory painted RTR, is rarely seen... the body was made from the modified mold of the Pactra Eagle-Climax F1 with an added "bubble" top.
The Vulture also uses the same "iso" chassis shown above in the Lotus.
