Yeah, I would be interested in a Nova or two and a LeMans. I did a ride-along with Sacramento County Sheriff in one of these olive green piles of junk as an 18 year old. This was before the law was passed that allowed emergency vehicles in California to be 49-state certified, so the car I rode in was equipped with the wheezy 403 Olds powerplant. Was kind of fun, we did a 10-plus mile code 3 ride to the scene of an armed robbery. Lots of Quadrajet air sucking noise, siren, not much speed. The 302-4V 4-speed 68 Mustang I left in the parking lot would have spanked the LeMans Enforcer HARD, I think....

Please post updated info on how to buy from the Arizona Den of Amazing Resin.

As bad as the 1980 St. Regis / Gran Fury with California Emissions ? Those cars made the headlines ; to paraphrase : " New [ CHP ] pursuit fleet won't reach 100 M.P.H. " .  That 120hp 318 four barrel was a pig . 49 states could be had with the E58 360 , which provided tremendous torque and 195hp .

Brown wouldn't allow it .

The Oldsmobile 403 was a California-specific engine . Another abject pig -- a negative marque on Olds' V8's record , surpassed only by the 350 diesel .

Hello evryone,

 

is this project still alive?

The "new" 3D-printing possibilities made many things possible over the last months... I saw things available in scale I waited a long time for. Rims, figures engines... whole models.

There is also a 1977 Le Mans available from guy on ebay. Ordered one and will take pictures when it arrives. It is my first 3D printed 1:25 scale car model... so I´m very interested in how the surface will be!

 

Greetings

Oliver

 The Too Many Projects  3D printed  Le Mans body is 1/27th scale. It's about the same size as a 1/25th scale Cutlass or Chevelle.  Other than the small scale , it is very nicely done.

Time goes by so fast... I already destroy mine a bit... but here are the promised pictures of the 3D body I got from Ebay.

The scale... hmmm, can´t tell... a 1967 Impala (AMT) chassis fit right under it with minor cutting:IMG_7392.thumb.JPG.1c0483f2ee07539fe4e2099f604eb069.JPGIMG_7393.thumb.JPG.092d01154ba6ee41a2759e5f6aa166fc.JPGIMG_7394.thumb.JPG.b95342ca8e50ed0f60801b56a602e26c.JPGIMG_7395.thumb.JPG.27f1c24720370b74fc4347ec44ab34f2.JPGIMG_7396.thumb.JPG.39bf0a82d24318f08e71c06c68586a83.JPGIMG_7397.thumb.JPG.c33d3331aae3aa14265f952b2e31bd1c.JPGIMG_7398.thumb.JPG.8475fca72beea9fbebc5cba5cbda2c20.JPGIMG_7399.thumb.JPG.24d899d8184d6c91a0d3219e4bd1cbbc.JPGIMG_7400.thumb.JPG.7e414a482d9f524dfb2e57fb0c0210b5.JPGIMG_7401.thumb.JPG.4556f4545e9cd0bb9740ab3439794edc.JPGIMG_7403.thumb.JPG.8912bcde256a2c79c621f0089df769be.JPGIMG_7404.thumb.JPG.9b3f8b2e9165d824049de9840814ddb3.JPGIMG_7405.thumb.JPG.759822fecd497dbc6e0624b72bec5df8.JPG

Where did you get that at. I'd like to get one. I did not see it in my eBay search.
