    Roger D and no 1/25's under my bed do have a couple of Drag wheels though from unmade 1939 Chev Convertibles ' still in the boxes from the 1970's with the stovebolt six, make them as standard or modified !! Revell I think.
    Make them '37 Chevs, got them out recently one made as a bit of a racer with the twin carb stovebolt, the other unmade, also have a Willys flip front Gasser, also built with a huge V8 - actually went out and bought glue and some paint, am going to restore the built ones first, [ made them first in 1971 as a 20 something, had just got married and a mate married around the same time both like kitsets, the Chevs are AMT and were made in NZ, must have imported the mould from the USA ] then see if I want to do the new one plus a couple of 1990 NA model MX5's, was going to one original and one, with a V8, from a box of bits I have .. and it is still 2016 [ not 2106 ]..

    ** Update July 2019 - still talking / thinking about the re-build and build -left the glue and paint in Australia - have to buy some more - Now back on the bucket list !!

    Chaindrive, when did it race originally, is not in the Graham Vercoe book, just checked under ACE , but is on page 245 under the RA1, article .. there is a picture of it racing in Lyttleton, against a similar looking car, in 1989 ? so guessing originally ran in the early 60's.. can scan it for you..

    Well done Roger. It is a rewarding hobby. The only car I have ever regretted selling was my NA MX5. Let's see the finished articles.
    Any pics greatly appreciated.

    Take a close look at the photo from Vercoe's book and the coloured photo from Hampton Downs. Is the car following the Ace3 the same car in both photos?

    Allan - the front suspension, nose cone and screen all look the same could be right.. and whose / what is it !! Will have to go through Vercoe's book for other pictures, a huge task / ask , might need a beer while doing it .. my job for tomorrow..

    Would like to find a source for the Shell Racing New Zealand decals as used in late sixties/early seventies which featured Shell logo and white steering wheel on red background. They were on just about every NZ car raced in the era. I had a couple on my Lotus when I raced it in Historics. Full size or scale are ok.
