This time it is an interior as opposed to a body. I got this from ebay some time ago. Anybody know what it is or what it belongs to? Being an original, the detail is very good with very minor repair needed. It also has the possibility to create some new interiors for us.

I don't know who made it, BUT..... from the "roofline" behind the driver, it's obviously for a coupe..... I'll guess a Ferrari P3/4.

Pretty sure that's a Lancer (gulp, affirming without checking, never a good idea). If I remember correctly, they popped the driver's head in that little slot behind the cockpit - always been tempted to just let him lie there and enjoy the ride...

I've made a test pull and with trimming it fits a Lola T70 and a few other coupe style bodies. I expect We will be creating a new generic interior as well as keeping the original. Thank you.

Just checked it against a MIB Lancer Ford GT MkII - very similar, although not quite the same... Still pretty safe to say it's a Lancer - not sure if they made different interiors for their different GTs.

Will these have a head or will you offer repopped heads also ? Open face helmeted drivers seem more appropriate on our Retro cars.

Betta once had white plasticard  interiors for 1/24 bodies. I have two firmly packed away, or else I'd dig them out for a look. One came with a Porsche (917?), the other with a Lola coupe. Could the one shown be a Betta too?

I will be doing them with a choice of resin driver heads for the restoration guys along with a full helmet molded in for retro guys. It will also be available in white styrene, black styrene or clear polycarbonate.

As for interiors I would like to see a good quality F1 interior. The Champion is very usable but one with better detail and shape would be nice.

The Ford GT style interior, perforated seats and rounded roofline lead me to believe the interior shown in post #1 is from Lancer's #157

Eddie, We are working on this interior. The origin is unknown. Is this the champion interior you are speaking of? I have the ability to create new ideas too. Email me and perhaps I can create what you are looking for?

No face shied, only goggles and balaclava (scarf over mouth and chin).

No that is not what I am looking for. I will find an images and send it to you.

 

No that is not the Champion It may be O/S.

I have a casting of the above driver with no head.   We use it in the Lotus 38 and similiar resin bodies I make,    I can supply a plastic casting if anybody wants to vac form it.   It is a Lancer piece from the 60's.  I have a new one in the package.   Maybe later today I will put up some pictures.

Yes, I think so, see post #10 above. Another identifying feature would be the notch at the top of the rear bulkhead,

to clear the NACA duct air intake in the roof of the Mirage.
