The 1/32 monogram Cooper-Ford with narrow closed rear wheel arches was issued as a static kit, a slot race set and a slot race body kit was available as well (see example picture).

 

Also it came in several variants of the color blue ranging from light to very dark and finally there is that version with the open rear wheel arches, allowing for fatter tires.

 

I am looking for a picture of a slot race body set with the open rear wheel arches.

I wonder if it was ever issued? Can anyone show me a clear picture of such a kit?

Sorry, no pictures. The complete slot race kit was my first slot car after my Strombecker racing set and my first trophy winner. In a 1/32 stock class drag race, no less!

In the later release of Monogram's 1/32 Cooper Ford the rear wheel openings were flared and wider tires fitted. This 1965 version of the car (kit #SR3204) used a swing pickup style chassis and a "precision cast crown gear". It sold for a whopping $7.00 and was complete with the new "Tiger Super X-110" Mabuchi 16D size motor

FYI:  The alternate light and darker metallic blue colors on Cobra roadster and coupe and the King cobra reflect the shades of metallic blue paint of FOMOCO of those different years.

 

When I got the Monogram 1/32 kit and saw the Shelby Team race at Meadowdale Raceway in Illinois, I had to modify the kit to match the REAL car that raced that day.....photos should be in that box in the closet....I hope.
