Mark, I'm quite sure I mail ordered mine from Speed & Sport in the '71-'74 period. Back in the day, I ordered items from Ron Granlee that I couldn't get locally. The winging that came with the Associated bodies was unique. I wasn't anything like I ran on a king & a Sovereign track. That was similar to today's winging.

All finished up. The interior is artistry by Noose:

She's low and swoopy:

Staying ahead of the "Tribute Racers" going into the lead on:

That's a Philippe De Lespinay "Diamond" in the middle and a TonyP Da ISO Spyder on the outside.

 

Neat looking livery :sun_bespectacled:

Would love to know the answer to these questions.

 

Does any one know if these, Monty big O in the clear plastic box chassis, were all signed?

 

I wonder how many were made?

Here are some scale drawings of the Monty Ohren Big "O" Super Iso Pro for anyone who might also want to build one (or their own interpretation).

 

First, the complete chassis:

Next, to clarify how the sub-assemblies fit together, just the center section:

 

1973 Ohren Big O Iso Pro 2 of 4.jpg

 

Now the Iso front end:

 

1973 Ohren Big O Iso Pro 3 of 4.jpg

 

And finally the plumber and pans:

Have fun!  :D

Very cool Steve.......thanks!

 

 If anyone wants to build one for yourself Steve's drawings should sure help. It will be fast and fun on a modern track with modern tires and C-can motor.

 

Different versions of this chassis pop up all the time on eBay:

There's the drop arm and motor mount. Some versions have nice pans too. If not, K&S brass sheet works.

 

Please feel free to contact me if I can help clarify anything.
