            Yes it is a RRR Mustang , Fits on the Dash chassis the best, Takes work to put it over a Autoworld chassis

              Yes, bought a few of those Mustang "GT347" bodies myself. The RRR stuff is usually sized to fit the Aurora chassis, at least that's been my experience with them over the years. They are beautiful, and yeah, I've had to fiddle around a bit to get the driven gear to clear while mounted to the Auto World chassis. That's the spec chassis set up for the club so I've gotta use it. Most everyone else is running Aurora Dino Ferrari or Auto World Corvette Grand Sport bodies (for the long wheelbase set ups, at least). Wanted something different in the FORD flavor. The Aurora '67 XL500 (Galaxie) works well, too, very lightweight, and those long quarter panels don't really affect the handling the way you might think. Looking forward to building up two more of those Mustangs, a basically stock Aurora chassis for fun running and a slightly modified Aurora chassis for the drag box. Enjoy! -- Ernie

            Those look great with the Vincent wheels! I have a number of my own to do if I ever find the time.

            Are the white lettered tires from RRR, decals or another source?

              Yes they are RRR Goodyear tires, But most of the fords run Firestones back in the day. I do have some on order
