    In regular scale, the AMT kit is the only game in town. But it is a 2-door hardtop and thus would require rescribing of the doors, door handles, and a different roof.
    With all that Supernatural thingy going on, I'm a bit puzzled as to why the resin guys haven't jumped on it yet.
    However, if scale doesn't matter, a 1/18 model is made by Greenlight in their Artisan line.

    Here is a photo from the 1964 Le Mans:

     
    Even in this blurry shot you can notice all kinds of differences between the two cars. They also have the FIA wheelarches, which other examples lacked.

    Each car is unique and the differences aren't even subtle in some cases.
    Also, being raced, each car went through the usual metamorphose of changes/improvements/repairs/bodging up/adapting to rules from one event to another.
    They were far from mint in the end, some were downright battered. Your best option is to select a specific chassis # and specific event and try to replicate that.

    Yeah, in the Le Mans Classic. In '76 it was run in the real race. The one for men.

    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.

    Now there is a difference between James Garner, everybody else, and me.

    Does the MPC body at least fit the AMT chassis? I mean, it didn't fit the MPC chassis, so the chances are good.

    Yeah, but it can't be done. Because someone said so. If you'd be "inside", you'd understand, you know.
