You probably don't have one these laying around.

 

Going through a large box of projects/restos I will probably never get to. Forgot about this gem.

 

Please ID the body. Is it possible that the body has shrunk? Wheelbase no longer lines up as the "protector" bar out front prevents the body from going forward to line up.

 

Or was this a miscalculation by the designer. Also, the big 36 interferes with the body at motor top.

 

Maybe that's why it remained "un-launched" by the original builder.

 

Quite an imagination here. Notice the pen clip as drop arm spring. 

 

Dubbed "Appollo IV " (sic) by it's builder. Named after the first unmanned Saturn V rocket launch.

 

I'll accept all comments good or bad.

the pics of the body aren't good but looks to be a Ferrari 612.

A LTO Ferrari?

 

That's a first.

Could this car be strictly for bowl racing?  Unique!
