Lovely. I just bought a Super Shells body sans windscreen to make chassis #132 that Herb Wetanson raced to 17th place (from 30th on the grid) in the 1966 Bridgehampton Can-Am. Will follow with interest.

Keep us posted on your progress, too. What kind of running gear are you planning?

A little progress aided by some guesswork guided by magnifying glass examinations of the available color photos for the front quarter panel details.

After seeing these pics I have straightened the color bar decal and thinking about replacing this Porsche one because of the faded P.
The simple SW chassis runs well already, although will need new tires due to my over-zealous edge rounding on the right.

Slotspeed, thanks for the info. Pretty much what I found out. I especially liked the story of getting a street permit for the Can-Am 917/10 during the week of the Australian GP and auctioning off rides to a cafe.

The body came with these “inserts “ for the headlight recess so I decided to make it easy on myself and just use them.
