Sebring 12 Hours 1964 Proposed group build thread

Recommended Posts

Saw Four of these beasts - all lined up - waxed and polished - at the Amelia Concourse- four years ago - the survivors -  less than 50 ? - are all over- restored - and gorgeous - if I had one I would do exactly the same thing - curbside is fine - but if you get ambitious - it would be easy to source the engine - either way - i was really hoping that someone would do this car - are there any survivors in Australia ?  Check Primotipo …

Fr Dave B:      I have found in my stash a pre painted vac form Iso.

It  looks reasonably good but I will need to review dimensions and see what I can do about the wheels prior to seeing if it will slush mould.

If someone turns up with a resin kit offer them the slot.

I'll keep this link informed of my progress.


speaking of which:


cool fact:  Bizzarini:  born in '26, is still alive !

Hi Andrew, my vacform body is not real good, apart from being 5mm too short and at least 5mm too shallow (both fixable) it appears the Sebring Iso, chassis #B0202 was the second of only three 7000 rivet cars, being the first 3 manufactured, and the vents, side windows and some body fixtures are substantially different. 

I'm going too clean the body up, take a resin slush mould and see what happens.

Should anyone with a decent resin want #5 please give it to them.

Dave B

PS my plans are for the later body style but are better than nothing.
