1966 Porsche 906/8 roadster

Here's one that's probably not in anyone's collection! How bout a 66 Porsche 906/8 roadster. I had a smashed roof Eldon 906 that I saved for some reason? now I know why! It made an awesome (in my opinion) 906/8. I used an old Carrera Opel gt chassis that has independent front stub axles, a BWA slimcan motor, brass pinion. left the Carrera guide mount, but got rid of the spring, and added a wood guide blade. Rear tires are PG, front are stock Carrera. Parts box interior, swapped drivers head, Nothing really fancy going on here, but it sure is a good runner! and it fits right in. Color is Ivory from ACE. Clear coated with same brand enamel. I love building a neat car from basic junk, it just feels great when you get them done and makes some laps.
Hope you all enjoy my on off Porsche racer!

Good Job, Bob.

It looks great.

I always enjoy the out of the ordinary builds. (or should I say, the oddball projects?)

Very clever, you would have never known it started life as a coupe.

Bob,
Great build, and great save on the body. I love the oddballs that make me go find the car and learn something new. I wouldn't have known this was Can-Am eligible, but I do now!

Well done!
