Got a few of the Riggen 1/24 chassis that use the Cox Nascar motor.


The years have not been kind to the bodies.


Anyone repop original style ones? Would like in at least 20 thou thickness. Thanks

Dave, I believe it's a 70'-'73 Camaro.


One of my favorites as I had a real '70 1/2 Z-28 with a LT-1, M-22 and the factory 410 12 bolt with the RS option and the deluxe interior. I bought it off the original owner after it had a carb fire for $700  :)


Man, those were the days. Never lost a race with that car. Shut down anything that I ever came across. I had to switch it to a close ratio power steering box as it was impossible to control with the manual box.

I agree with Lone Wolf... Looks to be a 70-73 Camaro body. I do find some nice Dubro bodies depicting the muscle cars of those era once and a while on the 'bay.
I am currently doing a hard body 70-1/2 Camaro Z-28 on a H&R RTR chassis (after a disastrous AMT chassis build)....I am building from memories of my high school years as a fellow student had a 70-1/2 split bumper Z28 LT-1 M-22 red/black and pretty fast...
My first car out of high school was a 1971 Firebird Trans Am 455HO M40 auto that I street raced all the time.
I lost my only two races to (2) Mopars... One was my friends quite modified 70 Challenger 440 R/T and a Hemi Coronet R/T (lost by a bumper). I raced all the Chevelle SSs 325/350/375 HP... Small block Vettes and one 427 4-spd Vette, 442s and other Pontiacs.... And yes, Lonewolf.....(2) 70-1/2 LT1 Z-28 4 spds. Aside from the (2) Mopars, all fell victims to the Firebird T/A.....
I suspect my car might have been somewhat of a fluke because I definitely had room to be a better driver..... What I wouldn't give to go back to those days.....Sunoco 260 @ 32.9 a gallon.....blah, blah, blah
Hey Lone Wolf....Have you looked to see what a correctly restored 70-1/2 LT-1 4-sod Z-28 costs today...??? I choked when i saw the price of a 71 T/A....
Sorry for running off with the thread....I am leaving now and on my way back to reality......
