I recently picked up this Testor Plymouth Hemi on eBay.

 

I have worked throughout this car to refurbish it even though the body has a some cracks. I thoroughly cleaned the body, chassis and replaced the improper rear wheels and tires with new Testor Duro/Genex rears.

 

Does anyone make or have a replacement body as this one in addition to cracks has a driver missing his head!

Try Pattos for a replacement body.

Interesting. They have the sister Mirage body. I'll check to see if I have an extra Plymouth body. Just have to get into my garage!

That body is the McKee-Plymouth Can-Am car. A McKee MK-6 would be close.

I realized that it was suppose to be a McKee, but doesn't favor the ones I have seen. I am probably wrong.

 

Mike, if you do find one let me know!

 

Thanks gents.
