      Hi,

      does somebody has any information or pictures of this body. Does it fits to the old Nichimo Shelby GT 500 chassis pan?

    Hey Michael

    I would recommend doing a quick web search for

    "68 mustang specifications"

    and another search for the particular year Shelby GT 500 you want to try and use the chassis pan from.

    Compare the wheel base and the tread width (front and rear). If these numbers are close then the pan should be close.

    If they are not close, compare those numbers to other cars that are available in 1/16 scale. If you can find some thing that is close, half your work will already be done because the wheels should fit up in the fender openings pretty good.

    Here's a pic from the TDR TDR Miss "E" Car Body 1/16 catalog.....it's offered as a 1/12th RP TDR Miss "E" Car Body 1/16 body (not cast). Contact Tim directly at TDR TDR Miss "E" Car Body 1/16 Innovations to see if it will print well and pricing in 1/16th.

    The TDR TDR Miss "E" Car Body 1/16 bodies are just that, bodies. They were not made to fit any particular donor kit.

    The wheelbase and the tread widths for the Miss E matches those of the 1967/1968 Mustang. If the donor kit has the correct wheelbase and tread widths then it should be able to be adapted to the TDR TDR Miss "E" Car Body 1/16 body. Some scratch building is to be expected.
