Not one to fuss about looks. Do know the new one is smaller and feels a lot smaller and lighter driving it. Rides much smoother as the older oners were very rough. The older cars did stick really well but just rode extremely rough and felt like driving a big heavy brick. This one is a lot like the new Corvette in that it feels effortess in hard driving with a nice comfortable ride. As far as room I'm 6 ft and have plenty of head and leg room in the older car. This one is smaller inside but still I have plenty of head and leg room. The visibility is a bit better in the A pillar areas. It gets the 450Hp LT1 out of the vette with no detuning so more low end tq and more hp than the older versions.
The 1/24th Testors 917 is the Heller kit. Done in the 1971 Martini livery. Was available in the 80's as a Union kit. Heller also did the 1970 LM winner and a Gulf livery version. Pretty sure the Testors boxing was before the Fujimi 917 versions were released. There were a lot of different Fujimi kits reboxed as Testors though.
