It came out of my box of body horrors labeled:

"Repop DuBro Ferrari 3 liter 1966"

I doubt that is correct, but it is a nicely painted body and I intend to build a chassis for it.

 

Thank You,

Pablo

I don't know, but I'm going to say mid-'60s, Ford-powered Indy car, not a Ferarri. There are only four intakes visible, and it looks like a "bundle of snakes" exhaust system on top. I'd say search for some mid-1960s indy car photos, Pablo.

Could be a Brawner Hawk, around '67. Take a look at Mario and the Dean Van Lines entry from '66/67. I don't think the Coyote Ford had a gas tank on the right side.

Almost certain it's a Lancer #218 Brabham-Ford:

Clipping from the 1967 Auto World Catalog, page 138:

Probably a "factory" paint job.

Steve is correct. Billy Yee used that Brabham F1 body in a "Model Car & Racing" build article.

Definitely Lancer Brawner Hawk.  They had a whole series of cars from that era: Stein Twin Engine Porsche, Gerhardt Offy, Eagle stock block, Watson Ford, BRP, Shelby Turbine, Halibrand, Lotus 56 turbine, and I think there were a couple more.....

 

 

I wish we had a class that would run them if they were available....

Steve, 

 

Pretty sure some of these bodies could be used here:
