I have been meaning to put up some pictures of the Munter resin Torana body completed and wanted to do something a little different to the norm. I semi finished the car around 6 months ago and planned to put up some pictures but as usual life got in the way. Anyway I was at the Muscle Car Masters yesterday and there she was in all her glory. Being a Ford fan Dick is one of my favourites and when Munter made some resin Torries I had to grab a couple. As Dick ran one I had to do it also. Luckily Patto makes the decals so I picked the 1973 improved production version so I could keep it looking correct with a set of slicks all round.

The chassis is a MRRC aluminium version and the wheels Slot.it 14X8 from the Ferrari 312 and Alfa 33 fronts. They are spot on and fit the car perfectly. I found the Alfa 33 inserts to be about as close to the wheels Dick used on the Torana in 73 as I could find.

From what I can tell in my Dick Johnson books the colour scheme on his clothing is about right. Below are a few pics, from the Muscle Car Masters and the resin version.

Munter you cast up a great body and it goes very well with a 16K MRRC slimline motor.

That looks awesome Vinno. Didn't know he ran a Torana.

I like the open window too ...
They are only toys .... until you pull the trigger.
