After a yr of trying in vain, I was able to get my hands on one with the help of 98arturo, a member here at SB.  Can we get a view of what's under the bod?

Interestingly, I bought that clear body on eBay about a year ago or so. It was attached to an earlier era brass scratch-built chassis that I still have  

 

I have never seen another one exactly with that cockpit area.

I think I see what you're talking about.  The cockpit on mine is more like two slanted figures meeting at the center.  The ones on your's looks like big circles.

Beautiful!

A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

Nice!!  Looks to be powered by a 27 single, enough to send it flying, at rocket speed, around the track!  BTW, sillies look awesome.  NOS, or recaps?

The Silicone coated foamies are Pro-Track bought from Professor Motors.

 

The armature is a Rocket 27S and the entire motor was built and improved upon by John Havlicek including adding a ball bearing in replacement of the kimble in the FT16D Mabuchi can.

Mother's Mag & Aluminum Polish would keep that brass looking mirror-like shiny.
