I normally prefer really scale cars, but for some reason I just prefer the original Tamiya Lancia Rally on the very non-scale Frog/Brat chassis.

TC member Grastens was to blame for this unsanctioned spending! The photos of his Lancia Rally in the snow and dirt are awesome.

I got really lucky here with the chassis being built but never run, the body is unpainted but perfect, the windows, decals, wheels and tires are all in excellent condition and the box and instructions look great too.

This is going to get built and run!

This one looks great on the box art, even if there is a little let down upon building it on that funny chassis. I know it isn't the same size diameter etc, but there is currently a set of Kawada wheels that are staggered in size on eBay for an M04, I think they look leaps and bounds better than the Tamiya units in white. Just my opinion. Message me if you can't find what I am talking about.

Possibly the best looking 'out of scale' Tamiya imo. A great choice and I agree about Grastens enthusiasm and photos, they make me want one too.

Wow a rare sight indeed! I myself is still searching far and wide for a potential restoration project or a new build but no luck thus far. Congrats!
