Questions?? Vintage Mardave Pan Car/F1?

My father-in-law passed down a box of his old RC bits from the 70-80's era when he used to race.



Most of the electrics we're toast or junk so I am left with this chassis, two bodies and a head ^_^



Looking at the rear end it certainly looks Mardave like but I am unsure if this is a hand made chassis or a production chassis at some point?



Can anyone chip on?



The bodies are in good condition although the F1 style one I guess is missing the rear wing. The blue one appears to be LMP/Pan based.



I would like to buy a cheap brushed Mtroniks/Mardave ESC, maybe a new G2/HPI 27t Brushed motor and pop my receiver in to get it running for old times sake for my father-in-law to see.

I think it might need new foams though!

I believe the body is a Ishimasa FF12E Porsche 917!

For the sake of simplicity, you will still be better served with a newer brands brushed ESC, non mechanical that is. for setup alone, it will be less of a headache.

Something like that would be ideal or maybe a Hobbywing 1060 Brushed
