Remember... if you know the answer (if you know the source of the photo), do NOT tell us! That ruins the game for everyone else!

I think it's a very beautiful model of a fantastic car, especially with the Halibrands and that injector set-up. There's just a few little details that don't quite look real. I wouldn't be too surprised if I was wrong though!

Hmm. This is a tough one. But I'll go with real because the windshield frame looks less klunky than most models and the tires appear to be bearing some weight.

The frame horns are not boxed. I've never seen a model with that level of detail. But the lack of valve stems has me scratching my head.

I'm guessing it's a very well done model.

Club Cobra website has an interesting discussion on Halibrand vs. Trigos wheels - I quote:

'Rod-will the valve stems be inside the web like Trigo or outside like Halibrand?

Does that mean what I think it does? Never heard of this idea before but it would explain why the valves aren't visible on the outside! Trigo is apparently a Halibrand lookalike wheel.

I still think it's a model though.

It's real as can be driven. 100% sure.

 

It's a model because it's fake, it's just something made to resemble the original car made in 1932.
