Thank you JC for the help with the wheels. I contact them by email, too late for call them, and ask how long is the delay they are talking on the website.

HRM also makes a conversion kit to add the weber-carbureted engine to the Gunze kit. It's a beautifully detailed piece .

Should have added that he also makes his own Cobra Daytona kit with an engine. He may have the best resin castings of anyone.

Opening the slots on the wheel. 14 more to go...

The 1964 Daytona had the wheels in silver color right?

I know that HRM has a transkit for it, but there is no engine for what I been told. Also they told me that there is a waiting list up to 90 days, but now seems that nobody know when HRM will start to work on some order again. For what I understand, HRM is one man operation.

I was thinking to scratchbuild the Fiat Bartoletti transporter, that carry the Two Daytonas. I think it will be a cool combination. Bartoletti was famous in Italy back then for build Buses,after they change and build truck trailer. If you look a the Shelby transporter it look a bus, with the back open. Here a little bit of story about this truck. It is a 1960 Fiat - Bartoletti truck, that was commissioned from Scarab/Reventolw to carry his cars to F1 race. The team Lotus used it a couple of time after Scarab folded. In 1961,'62 and '63 was back at Bartoletti in Forli', Italy. In 1964 Shelby bought it, added a third axle for be able to put more weight on it, and repainted. In 1965, '66', '67 was used by Alan Mann (Ford) and repainted. In 1968, '69 and '70 was repainted in blue with yellow stripes, for teh John Woolfe Racing. In 1970-'71 was rented to David Piper for make the Le Mans film. From 1972 to 1979 was bought by JCB (Bam Ford) and used for historic racing and co-op with Harley Cluxton/GTC for Le Mans, at least for  1977/'78, with Renault name on it. JCB put a new transmission in it (Leyland). In 1980 the new owner Michael Shoen used it for historic racinng and put to rest. In 2006 was bought by Orosco, and in 2008 was fully restored.

Call Harold directly at HRM, (301)604-8591. I called last week about his Testa Rossa engine kit and he had it out to me a few days.

That Cobra book is pretty pricey now.   i bought one when Pete Brock was selling them at a Shelby convention in the 90's.  $100 and he signed it for me.

Slightly understated .  

 

Great Job on the cab so far.  This has to be my favorite transporter ever. I'll have to look for it but I think Motor Trend classics did a write up on the restoration of the truck . If you can find them for a decent price any Dave Friedman book is worth it , his pictures are amazing . I can't wait to see more progress !

One of the HRM reseller that I contact, seems that he will able to make me have the parts in a short time. :)

$100, is a lot of money, but still a good price compared to the $1200t hat they ask now.

Thank you Randy! :) I heard about the write up, but I couldn't find it. But I was able to  find a lot of information about the  truck. Thank you for the tip about the book, I will check it out.

Yes, I'm glad they restored it.

 

Some small progress on the rear axle. Still a lot to do...
