Dave Van appears to make the Bobby Allison decals for this car as well as some others.



I've got a set-good quality but limited run type printing, buy 2 and double up.

Can we have a mid 30's chevy?

Bah, we need (NEED!) a new mold Shelby 289 Cobra, street and race.  After that you can have your '30s Chevy.  :)

I don't know if they got the asking price but $229K is a lot for a car with no top level racing provenance.  Owned by Penske, driven by Donahue, a couple of first and second place finishes, OK.  Regional racing history, not so much.  Of course, that sounds like I have the kind of money to act on that opinion.  :rolleyes: Sure was pretty though.

In Topic: Best AC Cobra in 1/25 Scale

The Fujimi kit does have fender wells but for everything else I prefer the Revell/Monogram kit. I built the FIA Cobra to the left by combining the 1/25 AMT 289 with body parts from the Academy 1/25 289 which actually has a 427 body.

Do you have any details on that build?  Whole body or just fenders, etc?  Right there is a big hole in the car model panoply: how can a new mold, modern 289 Cobra (both street and FIA/USRRC) model NOT be a home run for some enterprising model company.  AMT's 260 Cobra has to be 50 years old by this point.  And lets add a Daytona Coupe to that, shall we?

While the specs of the real car are certainly impressive, and the model kit does look very detailed, all I see is a Ferrari doing a "duck face" picture.

+1  Haven't cared for a Ferrari Halo car since the F-40.  I also like rotary phones, newspapers, analog cell phones with a little antenna you pull up.  :D
