Anyone have a lead on acquiring a couple?

 

I have a couple very nice chassis that need nice bodies.

Both new Ferrari & BRM bodies  have shown up somewhat frequently on eBay during the past year. Prices have been high. I'd look for good used ones that could be refinished..

Keep in mind that there are 2 different versions of the Ferrari, one is bell drive and one can drive and the bodies are different !

Just for interest, this SlotBlog post from 2013 on the Cox Ferrari 168 F1 kits by PdL might be of interest.

:huh:

Yes, that's why I specified the Series 2 bodies. I have a couple of very nice series 2 chassis that need bodies. I have a NOS BRM body, but it's a Series 1. 

 

As I understand it, the Series 2 body will fit either chassis, just by gluing the driver mounting in different locations. The Series 1 body does not have that option.

I guess I should have said Series 3, according to the Dokk.

 

I think I found one. But this car sits way too high. I guess I'll have to mod it in some way.

Not sure why, but the new car sat a bit high for me. So I removed the front chassis mount insert from the post, and filed the flange off the insert, and reinstalled the insert. Now I have to do the rear mount.
