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. Sure was pretty though.
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?
