This photo truly makes it impossible to tell, but I have a hunch it's a model!

Seems to be weight, however slight on the tires, the spokes are just too fine for PE. I say REAL.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say MODEL on this one. Thee's something about the sticker on the bonnet that doesn't quite look right to me. Having said that, the entire car (real OR model) is fantastic, and if it is a model, the wheels are downright incredible!

I think I see a piece of sprue.

I'm going with real on this one. The wheels are my clue. Very very few model set get the borrani wheels right and these appear to have the proper three rows, though I don't detect the valve stem. The sticker appears to be from a colorado vintage event and would not be something that you would see just any old modeler throw on. If I am wrong this is really a very nice build!

Hmm........no valve stems, no weight on the wheels, the door seams don't seem to have much depth.

Model.

It looks real but I think it is a very well done model because the wheel rims have something on them that looks like trimmed sprue on the edges next to the tires. Don't know how many E jag kits there were but this could be the 1/8th Monogram kit converted to a convertible racer. I had one, sold it un-built, and it had some nice wire wheels like these. Also no visible valve stems. I say Model.

I keep thinking that it's real because of the lights, glass, and rims, but the grill openings and the "fasteners" on the sides look kinda off.

upon closer inspection, I have to say that it's real, those aren't sprue connections on the rear wheel, its a wheel weight to balance the tires, definitely real. B)
