What kit car body is this ?

Post by splitbusahollic » Mon Sep 25, 2017 11:44 am

Does anyone know what type of kit car body this is ?
some people i have asked say it's a Dart or Flamingo maybe GT40 ??
it is on a type 3 suspension and even the taillights have been molded to be type 3.

Looks like an Amante GT, sold in SA as the Regi Marlin

Thanks Pine and Dawie ! looks like a rare beast i have found :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Ugly girls also find husbands, so someone may love to restore this beast ! :D
it is for sale and open to any offer....and i mean any offer :wink: :lol:
maybe worth the type3 pan and underpinnings to someone and toss the fiberglass body ? it does not come with an engine.

To think that a T3 had to be butchered to create that
