1966 Eldon Porsche 906 makeover.

Postby btaylor » Fri Aug 18, 2017 12:07 pm

Just about done with my Eldon 906. This is a continuation of my Retro rug racer series. Eldon body molded in red, Artin chassis, shortened wheelbase, and narrowed axles,with BWA slimcan motor. I vac formed the clear windows over the stock smoke version. This runs smooth as silk! nice low CG, and not to much power, make for a very reliable driver. Tires are stock artin front with Shotgunz rears. I tried to make this one look a little less shiny, and more track worn. Plans call for lighting at both ends like I did the others.

Very nice! It's great to see someone saving the older cars. I like the windows you made.

Look great! The smoke or blue windshields of some of the Eldons and Strombeckers always turned me off from them.
