Beautiful work, Stubbo! Did you make your own decals? They look very good!

Tony, the dihedral wing 1967 Ford G7A - the "Calliope", as it was called - was built on a spare Ford Mk.IV chassis, but never saw the light of day. It appeared on all the magazine covers, but never on the starting grid! Ford sold the chassis, plus a spare, for $1.00 to Charlie and Kerry Agapiou, who had been running a Lola for George Follmer. The Agapiou's modified the car extensively. It's best result was second in the Can-Am's venture to Fuji in Japan in 1969, with John Cannon driving. It unfortunately was heavily damaged in an accident at Riverside in 1970.

These were the car's results in the 1969 and 1970 Can-Am series:-

Howmet, time to start 'whittling away'. Here are the 1/32nd scale dimensions, which are pretty decent:-

WIDTH 63 mm
LENGTH 140.2 mm
WB 84 mm
F O/HANG 35 mm measured from frontwheel centre
R O/HANG 21.6 mm measured from rear wheel centre
F HEIGHT 22 mm
R HEIGHT 27 mm

This 1/32nd scale styrene body was made for me by the late Derek Thesnaar:-

With kind regards,
