It's been a while but I finally gave up on trying to find a replacement body for my 1968-69 race car. I raced this anglewinder car primarily at Hounslow raceway in the UK 48-49 years ago.
So over the years I have purchased every Mclaren M8a/M8b from all major players. I have yet to find a match for this body. Please notice it has the roll bar molded in and other details that make it unique and hard to find.
So I decided to put this beat up original race body back together. I must have cut the rear end off back in the day after a few hits and it getting sucked up into the rear tires.
I glued the three broken parts that were in my slot box and then patched the missing areas with epoxy and then shaped them to fit. I will drag the chassis out with its back up body (a Ferrari 312 PB) which was in better shape as it always made the car tail happy, so it did not get used much. Whereas the M8 always worked great.
Please let me know if anyone has seen another body like this.Or knows which manufacture made this. By the way it is Butyrate, not Lexan
