Default Vintage car Identification

I picked this up from my parents house. It had been there since at least the mid-90s and I have no idea how my dad got it. I always assumed it was some version of an Associated RC12. But after a little searching, I can't find any of those with this type for front end setup.

I think have have everything that I need to make ut run-able but it needs a body and I want to put some rubber tires if they exist.

I have no intention of competing with this, it will just be zipping up and down my driveway and road.

It's a Parma Pro Panther 12. Had a few of these and the Pro Panther 10.

Pro Panther 12 appears to be the correct answer. I used the spare parts I had laying around and it is up and running(on worn tires and no body)

Currently running a 2S shorty to a Trackstar SCT120 to a 21.5 turn Tekin Redline. I stuck a cheap Trackstar servo on it and the only pinion I had. I didn't count the teeth but I can tell that there aren't enough of them with this motor.

It will be enough for some driveway fun but it will likely get a more light weight ESC, maybe a brushed system out of a 1/16 traxxas revo.

Tire options? Hoping some rubber is available
Body options? Do modern 12th bodies typically fit?

Thanks for the replies so far.

Try the Parma Osella. It's period correct for the car.
