870C Dogfighter score :)

Post by dinglem » Tue Sep 12, 2017 10:05 pm

Just picked this baby up. I used to race against this very car BITD, and my old mate has let me take it off his hands (along with 4 other old cars).

It has a weave chassis and the original kit item came with it, barely used. It looks pretty standard and i am well chuffed with it. Just needs a thorough clean and check-over. The paint job was EPIC back when we were racing - sadly the shell is in poor-ish shape, but the undertray has survived well!! It also came with the original kit box and a big box of spare wheels, the early 2 inch and a few sets of the rarer 2.15inch deep-dish version.

Some pics:-

Not sure, it looks well finished but I have never seen another like it. I will ask the original owner and find out. It also came with a heap of pink rims of various sizes/dishes, and several sets of Hot Laps tyres.
