Default Wide Bodies 235mm for Trans Am Class?

Looking for anyone that still makes wide bodies for 1/10th (235mm) wide pan cars.Specifically for Camaro-Mustang and anything else that raced Trans Am in the 60-70's The 200mm is easy to find but 235mm? Any help would be appreciated.

AFAIK no one ever made those bodies for 235, and with that class virtually dead I don't think anyone will.

Whatever a wide pan car is? Oh yes they did- Parma -Bolink, maybe even Protoform and Associated. Just wondering if anyone still has the moulds and could make some. I'm not running a wide body but trying to get these cars back on the track in this class.Also getting the narrow pan cars back(200mm).Those bodies are out there.

Oh that's different.

Most of the 1/10 pan car bodies were stretched out versions of the 1/12 bodies that were available.

Both Parma and Bolink made bodies of classic cars that were more made to fit off road cars that were lowered to run on road, but I think they also fit the pan cars with some really tall body posts. Parma took most of those molds and resized them to fit 190mm touring cars. The Bolink molds are probably long gone.

Parma used to make some real interesting bodies, including a 70 Monte Carlo, and a '80 Monte SS, with the flat back window and the aero sloped rear window. Great bodies but out of production.

Bullfrog - It would be easier to call Robbie up and get a 200mm Corally Pan car. I think is new one is coming out any time now.

I knew at one point I owned a RACER CHOICE Toyota GT1 body that was 235mm....and I used it for my Serpent 835...it fit the width but not the height, and realized that it was deisgned for 1/10th pan car.

It was by TOWER before...now, no more 235mm.

I have several of the McAllister 70 mustang bodies - we use to run them on the 235 chassis (And I've run them on the narrow pan car chassis too)

McAllister had a 'Cuda body too, but I don't think he's making it anymore.

I know Parma and Bolink had vintage bodies too, but I think they were only 200mm.
