Dear fellows,

 

I posted this one on eBay.com, and a user called it into question regarding its authenticity. He said this is not a Stinger or a Stinger II anymore, arguing that the body is a Stinger II badly cut out. 

 

Now I retracted it from auction.

 

May I have your evaluation?

It's still a Stinger. HERE's a discussion link on the Stinger.

I am looking for the motor bracket for a Stinger if one exists in somebodys "extra" parts. The blue is very nice; I am partial to green.

The link about the previous discussion seem to be clear for this case.

 

The Stefanos Stinger seems to be absolutely correct. No parts cut from another.

 

Cheers.

Looks great Stefano and absolutely correct and original near as I can tell.
Those kits came with a 36D motor and a optional 26D motor bracket.
Could be the complainer thought that with the 26D it was not original.  But that's just a guess.
Nice car and good luck with the auction.

Thank you Jairus. 

I read somewhere a post of PDL saying that there was also a RTR version with a factory mounted 26D motor, but I can be wrong.
