Default Help me identify this vintage F1 car


I inherited this car from a friend. It is obviously old, my guess mid-80's. It is an F1 with foam tires, silver can motor, GEAR DIFF and vintage electronics. The body says "road wizard" and is pretty beat up. I think it's a tamiya, but would like to make sure it's not a knock off or something. Everything works and it drives great (I only tested it, didn't want to break anything). Nothing seems to be missing or broken. I have the antenna, mount and tube as well as an old Futaba Tx.

Anyone know what this is? Have any more information? What is this worth if I were to sell it? I'm planning on keeping it, it's pretty cool, but just curious.

Thanks! Pictures below:

Ok, thanks!

I've looked a bit online and have never seen one for sale, only parts here and there. Also, the tamiya F1 (like the link posted) have very different wings. Any more info?
