The only twist to this build is that I have been waiting forever for a suitable body as this chassis has a 4.5" wheelbase. I almost went hardbody when I found this Champion Ford Talledega - almost too good to be true as it allowed my car to be "all Champion."

 

This body is incredible as it clocks in at a solid 8 inches. This is probably the largest slot car I've ever seen! The body came with an interior but I am burnt out on this build a little bit so it will have to wait.

 

Check it out.  Be sure to click through as all my pics are nice and big.

Chassis.

 

It was all I could do to keep the motor a true "Group 12" and not balance the arm but I managed to resist the temptation.

I'm no expert on Champion bodies, but I think they once made  aerodynamic door stops of a Ford & a Monte Carlo. The Monte had the extended rear window that was popular in NASCAR for awhile. This one might be the Ford, but I don't think either has been produced in years. I've never heard of anyone repopping them either. Bob Israelite would know the details of the two bodies I mentioned.

If a chicken coop has 4 doors, does that make it a sedan?
