    I have reworked all of the Strombecker Shells I have and thought I would share some pictures of them

    Wow..what a job you've performed on cars that must be 55 years old. Brings back memories of my youth before my mother sold her house with my 1st wood track and Strombeckers cars in the attic of the garage.

      Very well done. This is just an example of how nice the Strombecker bodies really are...those old vintage bodies are nice and some paint and details really make sharp cars out of them!

        Looking at the paint on the RS 61 , it looks like a trip to the paint shop again. That silver is too blotchy. Funny how the photos pick up stuff you don’t notice under natural light and vision.

      I bought a bunch of those bodies off an HRW member earlier this year but have only made use of the Chaparral 2D body (mounted on a MRRC Sebring chassis). I like what you did with the Ford 'J' car body and should do something with mine.

      What chassis are you using for the 'J' car?

        All of these cars have scratch built chassis. All but two of them are Brass and lego with Mineabea small can 30k motors so they run about the same lap times.

        The J car however is sitting on one of the chassis I built for the Gt3 proxy. it is a Brass and Wire inline with a 25 K 130 type motor.
