i found this old TYcopro Chaparral body in my HO slot stash.I decided to see if a modern LL chassis would fit and it did after a slight enlargement of the wheel wells.The wing was long gone so I used the spoiler from a junk AFX Porsche and mounted it up with brass wire.i used stick on vinyl numbers and a Sunoco decal on the wing(it was way too monochromatic for me)!

Cool save. Some of those HO bodies were quite appealing
