Kinda lacking in some details,but hey,im not gonna look a gift horse in the mouth.For its intended purpose of VTA it looks like a new crop of cars will be introduced at the starting line.

Is this available now? I would love to put one on order at the LHS to have ready in case USVTA approves it.

While there are some concessions to any body to make it a one-piece mold, it is nice to have another VTA body available that is a one-piece mold.

Hopefully this will handle just as great as the McAllister VTA Mustang.

The bodies are available now.

The mostly white paint scheme doesn't show much detail, but that's the paint scheme Jerry Titus used in 1970. I think a good painter will be able to detail it nicely. We also did not recess the head lights since that is the way it was raced. Head light decals are included though. It is a VTA specific body, not just another muscle car. The overall fit should be excellent for the VTA cars.

Cool Gary - this will make SOME of the Pontiac guys happy, and should make another body for the popular US VTA and OUTLAW VTA Classes.
