Old Volvos. Aah. Love 'em. I had a South African-built twin-carb 122S from the mid-60s into the early 70s. Classic white/ivory/whatever. Great car in its day. Successful on the racetrack as well as in rallies. Not just for leafy suburbs in the US. Only 1800cc but my wife still fondly remembers cruising at 100Mph on the way from Jo'burg to visit family in Botswana, and we loved it enough to take it back to the UK.
Don: I suppose you know that Steve Francis and Dave Capelen (as SMK) have just produced a two-door 122/Amazon shell. Not the same or as easy as a contemporary RTR, but I'm tempted.
Thanks again, Bernard. Those White Points look strongly built. When were they made and what was the motor?
Thought the motor looked vaguely familiar. I have a Buhler in a 1/32 Stabo Porsche 904.
For anyone doing a search, it's also spelt Buehler. Maybe a German-speaker can put us right. Perhaps it's Buhler with an umlaut on the u and Buehler for anglophones, like the N'ring.
Early Carreras apparently had Buhler/Buehler motors.
I don`t think that this black motor is from Bühler . Here in germany it is called a "black Carrera Motor" and it is used in several race series . It is build from variuos producer like Racegold or Scaleauto ( SC02 ) . Its a 18D with 18.000 u/min and be used with 18 - 20 V .
