I need at least six of these bodies. I believe they are Ferrari 512s. Dennis Samson had Victor at TrueScale pull me some which I already used. I think he has the original mold and the rivet detail on his repops is incredible. Here is my last body which I started to trim. A job I hate more than just about anything else by the way, which is why I build hardbodies. Somehow, it wound up under something and got squished.
 
Dennis has tried to get Victor to pull more but I'm afraid it may not happen.   :frown:  I appreciate the effort by Dennis in any case.
 
Does anybody have a source for these or any other body that will fit the Dynamic 1/32 anglewinder? These are oddball size and nothing else I've found fits. Before anybody jumps down my throat, I know I've asked about these before. Still looking.
 
The yellowed body in the front is my last original and are scarce.
 
Anybody got anything?

Hi Joe,
 
I have some vintage Kirby bodies similar to this Porsche:

I've have a half a dozen or so assorted Kirby anglewinder bodies and a couple are Ferraris, too.

Rick, have you ever tried any of these on the Dynamic chassis shown? It is a real oddball size.
 
Wheelbase is not adjustable at 3" axle center to center. The track is about 2-1/4" and of course is slightly adjustable. Width at the pans is 2-7/16"
 
Let me know how yours measure up.

Thanks.

Joe Lupo

Joe,

These bodies were made to work with early '70s anglewinders which had a 3" wheelbase and a 2-1/2" width at the pans. When I try to measure the inside width of these bodies I get between 2-7/16" to 2-1/2" inches... they are kind of hard to measure being so flexible.
 
I have ten boxed Kirby body kits with interiors, eight different CanAm type bodies with two duplicates of the Ferrari 312 and the Autocoast Ti22. The other models are:
 
Ferrari 512
Ferrari 612
McLaren M12
March Can-Am
Porsche 917 Roadster
Lola T70 Coupe
 
They are all new old stock Kirby Lexan bodies with interiors and no cracks or splits. All are in the red, white, and blue Kirby box like the one pictured above.
