I needed a couple of interiors and found these in my stash. The print (not visible in the pic) on the front of the interior says Durus or Duruf.
 
Anyone heard of these and where they are available?

Thanks,

O/S sells that one, and Parma sells their own similar version.

Unfortunately, I don't think so.

Durl never made anything but flat interiors.

As an aside, Darryl "Durl" Vance and his wife Louise left the US for Ireland a year or two ago. Had to sell all of his slot car stuff and it almost killed him.

Could it be "Rufus" - this was a German manufacturer making bodies, etc., many, many years ago.

More likely a copy or 'backpour' of a Rufus interior.

Actually it seems to be a very lousy copy of the original, very sharp Rufus.
 
I just found this in my secret stash.

That's it Niels! Now the big question, are there any out there for sale?

That's a nice looking interior, Niels. Is it butyrate? It looks too sharp for lexan.

 

The OP's looks like a backpour of a backpour, with maybe a backpour in between.

I meant styrene. Sometimes my mind works, and... sometimes it doesn't.  :D
