I saw one in 2010, but not sure it was/is the original. I didn't take a good shot of it, but it was the 2010 Milwaukee World of Wheels show, and probably others on the circuit, too. Looking at the banner in the background, the Vette appears to have received forced induction setup at some point:

I bet someone over at the H.A.M.B. knows for sure.

How many of these have been made now??

I know many were made back in the 70's when MPC first brought the kits out.

I have an OLD Dover Downs race program with pictures of them.

It would not be a surprise that the Vette would be modified in that time.

I'm pretty sure there were only eight different MPC Zingers kits made. They were just reissued a couple years ago. There's the semi, the dune buggy, van, volkswagon, dragster, Corvette, the Dodge van/pickup and the 57 Chevy.

And the two Super Zingers, so if we include those, ten total.

 

 

Was the Holley version ever on the show circuit with the other Zingers?

Ben, I did not mean how many kits.

 i meant, how many Using 1:1 Engines were made.

 

I see 4 in the wall poster behind the VW & Vette.

Those 2 plus the Rail & Dune Buggy.

I Think the Dodge Van was also done in that size.

I need to find that OLD Dover Downs Program with the pic's of the.

Wonder if the Girls with them are the same as in that wall poster
