The matra djet 5 is a pretty little French sport car of the sixties. The rea lone is powered by a 1300cc Renault engine. this model is a rare kit Verneuil poorly built when I was a kid. I completely rebuilt and modified it to accommodate a chassis and engine of Ferrari 348 Italaeri. Wheels come from a Alpine A110 Burago.

Wow, that's unusual and imaginative. I used to know the owner of a French restaurant here who had a Djet, many years ago. Like the midship Ferrari power. A very European take on the hot-rod concept.

Really like this one alot, first take was it looks like the Alpine. But only better
And with the hot rodding done to it which camp would complain first the Matra people or the Ferrari camp for killing a 348.

Great model and fantastic work. That work putting in the window molding is impressive.

Cool, cool, cool. It has the "gotcha" factor in spades.

That's just beautiful all over. The modifications for the trim, the flares, putty work an chassis/engine is just smashing. Great stuff!
