I think I remember that if you disassemble the unit Estrela, on the front of the tray or in the canopy pilots has the mark or logo of Estrela.

hi jose,since the iso chassis snaps in by way of the back axle,im afraid to detach it.i may break it.but i did notice other differences.1- because the chassis are totally different the estrela body has no front bottom body work.2- the mounting of the front axle is a different mold.tonight i will post some more estrela cars.thanks,bernard

Hi Bernard,

I think the Cox Cheetah has the wrong filler cap and it should look like the Estrela one and the spare wheel cover on the Cox one is upside down and is in fact like the one on the Estrela. Finally the Cox verison came with both chrome and clear light covers. So I think they are/should be more similar than you think. Thanks for sharing though, I never knew about the Estrela.

Hi Bernard,

This is my Cox Cheetah which I recently restored, you can see the rear filler cap and just about see the centre of the spare wheel.





Thanks,

Pete

Ey Up Scud,

That is really really nice !.

I like the Cox Cheetah, but mine are refurbished as standard.

Having seen yours I'm tempted to "up-grade" one !!.

Cheers.

Thanks Chris glad you like it. I actually had it with me at Jon Grainger's Norwich meeting in October but it wasn't quite finished, you obviously didn't see it.

There is a thread about it here

Cheers,

Pete
