The proportions are very similar to the Ferrari 250 GTO as well. I remember seeing in California a very convincing kit car conversion using fibreglass panels for the front and back, but keeping the 240Z cockpit and windows. Only the opening hatchback rear window gave it away even from quite close up.Inspiration for the 240Z's styling was taken from Ferrari's 275GTB4A.
The one in the middle looks like a DP212, built for Le Mans 1962. The other looks to me like a DP214 or DP215 from 1963.So much for this aside, really nice progress Brian on one of my favorite cars. Those two Astons in the background show some interesting differences.
The car looks really good. I put some Scalextric Sierra wheels on mine as a quick fix and it greatly improves the look. Seeing yours, I need urgently to repaint mine!I’ve ordered some more Immense Miniatures drivers heads. But if they don’t arrive in time for the proxy race, Jame’s head will have to do.
When I get the car back from the proxy I’ll change the wheels. But they need to be original for the proxy.
