The c100 as I recall was very sleek and made by MRP.

We raced in Florida and the state series ran various body styles. One style was GT. We ran Greenwood Vettes, Masserattis, I even tried a Fiero once (and onlt once). While not as fast, these were still a fun class.

Not able to scan yet on account of time, but from the MRP catalog, probably 1985

!/12 bodies shown

Kemp Cobra
Renault F1 (two different body styles / same part number)
Datsun Pick up
Triumph TR7
Lotus Esprit
Hayashi Dome
TOJ - BMW
Porsche 924
Renault Lemans V6 Turbo
Ampex Prophet (two different body styles / same part number)
Busch
Frissbee


McAllister Racing listed these

Nimrod (Aston Martin Lola)
Lola T-610
RM-1
85 Olds Grand National
March 85G

Bolink Listed

Light-weight bodies
Schkee
Ferrari 312P
Lamborghini Countach76 Nascar Oldsmobile
ASA Camaro Latemodel
83 Thunderbird

Normal Weight Bodies
Schkee
Greenwood Vette
75 Camaro IROC
Ferrari 312P
Mazda RX7
Spyder
Lamboghini Countach
Porsche 917-k
76 Olds
Elfin
VW Bug
Kremer K3 Twin Turbo
C.A.C.-1
Datsun 280-zx
69 Dodge Charger
ASA Camaro
Chapparal 2k Indy
March 82G
83 Thunderbird
83 Camaro IMSA
J.L.P. Porsche
Arundel C-200

FWIW, the 85 Delta Catalog lists bodies from Associated, McAllister, MRP and Parma

The 1985 Parma Catalog lists
Ligier F1
Pontiac Sliverbird
Chevrolet NASCAR
New Rondeau M382
Williams F1
Buick NASCAR
Sorbello Sports
March 802
Porsche Group C (this is the Parma 956 body, the real 962 had big scoops)
ASa Ford Mustang
Lola T-700 Indy
Wagner Jr GP.C
84 Corvette
ASA Dodge Aspen
83 Pontiac NASCAR
Mustang GTP
Jomac Schkee
Jomac Greenwood Vette
Osella PA9

Not all the catalogs have photos of the bodies. Yes there are all kinds of decal kits to go with the bodies.

As already mentioned, these were modeled after real cars, and had to be approved. Suffice to say, there are some neat photos in the catalogs.

Amazing what else is found in this old stuff...very basic TRC early catalogs, a 12e assembly manual with the instructions for the hop up top deck. A 1/12 scale Associated catalog showing the 12e and 12i kits and spares (1983)

It also seems I have all the Super Phaser, P12 Spyder and pressure shock instructions and catalogs from Delta.

Crazy, but still there after 25 years...I must be looney to have saved it.

Consider also, this is circa 1985 catalogs. The C100 is not listed by MRP for 1/12 yet.

Obviously there are additional bodies that were molded later. As an example, Associated GTP Corvette.

Ran on the Jomac team with Ralph Burch and the gang back in the early 80's. What a good time that was.
