Chassis is Testors, but I don't know this body. Maker? Era? Did this come on a RTR car?

 

Thanks for any info.

 

Next need to find an NOS Testors body to make a complete era car.

Looks like a Parma '33 Ford coupe. I believe they came out around 1989 or 1990.

Parma made a panel truck version of that body too. I doubt if clear ones of either have been made in years.

PA 919 is the 1/32 womp (3" wb).   Both the 4" wb '33 ford Coupe (PA 956) and Sedan Delivery (PA 970) are listed in the "Y2K" Parma catalog as a available.

ok, so the Ford coupe body question is solved. Now for another body question: which Testors body would have fit on this chassis with these large rears? I need to search one out to mount on this chassis.
