As one can read on the front bumper, the car was entered in the 1976 Le Mans event. It was owned by NASCAR privateer Junie Donlavey, who shared the driving chores with Richard Brooks and Dick Hutcherson. Starting from the 55th (and last) spot, it lasted into the 11th hour, when the gearbox failed. It was thus not classified. A second Torino was supposed to run in that race, the Holman - Moody prepared 1975 car, that had already participated in the Daytona 24h. However, this was cancelled due to John Holman passing away.
The recent Heller 1/8 motorcycle reissues are flying off the shelves and will be followed up by already announced further reissues. I call this a resurgence.
So will be the MPC reissues, wanna bet? So would be the Revell ones, alas, Revell.
