I got this car from an old friend of mine. I had known for some time that he had it but didn't think he wanted to sell it until one day he came knocking at my door and asked if I had a spare set of radio gear for his mini. In exchange for the radio gear he offered me the Ralt for my collection. I didn't take much convincing and a deal was struck. Well that was now over 10 years ago and I've finally gotten round to restoring it. Unfortunately the chassis and motor mount had been hacked about by another previous owner so these had to be replaced with good used ones found on ebay. The body was in very good condition with no scratches and just needed stripping, repainting and a new set of decals applied. Just needs a pair of wing mirrors to be complete.

You've very possibly got the nicest and most complete collection of F2 cars here on TC. Lovely resto again John and it's only patience like yours that can be rewarded by such awesome results! Awesome work Mate!

@cooltoys - other body options would be the March 782 BMW, Martini MK22 Renault and the Honda Formula 02. I might be interested in the chassis if you decide to sell it.

@RACECRAFTERS - hiya Mal, thanks for the kind words. The Honda F2 is nearing completion but unfortunately the Renault is looking a bit sad.... I've been using it as a parts donor to get the other cars finished.
