I just found this !

It's really cool !

Look at all those production dimples !

Even comes with a molded wing !

Can't tell if this is F1 or Indy . I suspect that scoops a dead give away  !

Wonder who made this funky thing back in the day !?

THANKS !

Ya it does look like F5000.

 

Most of those cars had those tall intake scoops.

I agree John. To me it looks like a Lola T-330-T333(?) F-5000. But the vents should be on the side of the side pod on the Lola's, not the top of the side pod. So I have no definitive answer.

Fellas,

 

 

 I'd say that's a Betta Classic body from England...

Mike- just FYI, the Betta body is listed as 1/32....but Ted's question was posted in a 1/24 Forum.

 

So my question is if Ted's body is, in fact, a 1/24 body?

 

BTW, as the below photo of a 1:1 Lola T330 shows, the vents appear to be in the correct location on the Betta body.

The later Lola T332 had a different design in this area...see below.
