Wanted Looking for Corvette front and Rear

Post  Marleysky on Fri Dec 21, 2018 7:26 pm

Starting to prep up for the “Cars are the Stars”  i’ve got Red Body & Chassis.
Just putting out feelers to see if anyone has the Front or Rear bumpers/grille,  taillights, an  stuff, the interior and windshields would be a plus too. Well, most everything in these pictures that’s not the body!!

Just a silly thought, but would a plastic scale model be of any help? Might be able to find one the same scale and use the parts if you cannot find what you are looking for.

No that’s not a silly thought! I’d got that same thought from someone else on the forum who used a larger scale model parts , sanded down to fit his model. I may have to go that route if the parts I need are too rare or expensive. Itd end up looking like a NASCAR car rather than a stock Corvette!  I believe the Cox cars are 1/20th scale, the plastics models are a few other sizes:

I thought the same thing, so I bought the Riveria (box on right) to flesh out the model next to it. Very close, but no cigar.

I'm wondering if by any chance that Cox designed their cars using a scale not common in the plastic modelling world for this very reason?

Hey Mark! I’m not 100% on the year, guessing ‘65 fastback, (it’s not a 63split window!) shown like in my 1st post it is just the Red Body, no interior, no rear or front pieces or grille. Been watching the Bay, but so far nothing in parts or cars with fronts or rears with out buying a 300-500 new in box car. You’re right these are hens teeth.
