European and american cars are very different in style and dimensions, 1:1 american cars are very rare here too. |
This rarity and a good number of american syndications (from CHiPs to Jim Rockford !) made them uncommon and desiderable to my eyes. Sadly there are not slotcars or bodies currently on sale, with the exception of Aurora's Tjets or old Tycos on Ebay.
But I don't want to pay big bucks for runners so I casted this one !!

I cast racing bodies for racing use; they are detailed but are made for racers more than for collectors.
These bodies are hand casted so they are not perfect, usually small air's bobbles are trapped in the mould and it require a little extra work with putty and files to have a very good body.
Once filled with putty these little holes are invisible.
This Camaro body requires a Tyco 440X2 pan chassis with long wheelbase.
