Hi, I recently came across this nice VIP Stock car with red body and yellow roof:



It came with which seems to be its mate in a set, with yellow body but white roof and bumper, instead of the expected yellow ones:



I can't remember seeing a white roof on one of these cars, and have found no reference to a such after some search including Malcom Parker's webpage. Anyway, I have been never too concerned with colours, so probably some of you know far better, and may report if some other white roof has already been seen on one of these cars. Unfortunately, the car is in poor condition,



but some of the melted pins holding its body and roof together are still intact, so the white roof seems to have been originally fitted to the yellow body.

Same question applies to this white second-series MG.



According Malcom Parker's webpage, only early first-series cars (sidewinders) were injected in white. Although it has the ends of the chassis support broken, the body doesn't seem to be a modified first-series one, in particular it has the three holes for the windscreen and they seem to be fully original.



I will appreciate any information. Thanks, Eduardo

There is a Blue body/White roof stock car, but this is extremley rare.
No reason then why there shouldn't be a yellow body/white roof version, although this is the first one I have seen.

The holes for the windscreen are different on the inline MG to the sidewinder version, but no reason why these could not be opened up and a third one added, so not sure about this car.

Hi Phil, many thanks for the information. I already heard of a white body/blue roof sample. In any case if they injected in white, as you say, there is no reason why there shouldn't be a yellow body/white roof version.

Regarding the MG, I carefully inspected the windscreen holes through a magnifying glass, and they show no signs of handwork, so I guess it's original. Thanks again,

Eduardo
