Been looking for a while on and off for one of these and a few months ago Ebay came up trumps.
I believe this one was through member SpZero and came complete but very dirty and had the wrong wheels and tyres on the rear but the pics showed potential.
A quick clean and tidy up of the body and swapped the rear wheels and tyres for the correct ones and here it is.
If i ever find a decal set i will strip and re-do the body
Will clean up the chassis at some stage, as you can see came with period radio gear and electrics which was a nice bonus.
Chuffed to have this in the collection and thanks to SpZero i have one i think its my favourite F2.

Looks great, are you going to drive it ? I drove my countach cs the other day on very new flat tarmac and it still bounces all over the place !

It certainly looks great for its age and I wonder if some heat will get those edge peeling decals settled back down?
