This is a Kyosho Dash-1, it was the first car kyosho made early in the 70's. I have an old cataloge from Robbe from 1974 there they called it Robbe K-1. I think the car is not a extrem rare car because they are offered sometimes. But to find one in a good condition can be very complicated. Tgis one seems that is has not run many times it has nearly no marks on the chassis and bodys. It comes with a Lola T-70 and a Porsche 917 body, both whre clear bodys and both in excellent condition with period stickers. I think both are original kyosho bodys. The tires looked like new. Only the rc case is missing the front part. I need for this car a good rc case and a break. Maybe sometimes i will get this. When i found the time i will clean him, to restore him is very easy because of the good condition.

Today we have a rain day and so i found the time to clean the dash, I changed the engine against a Veco 19 i have from an other car, i also add the correct exhaust system. I only polished the body a bit the old colour is very sensitive and i will not change it. I think now the car looks much better as it was. All is original now, maybe i get an old rc system for it, but i will not run with this rare piece.



cleaning finished the Veco 19 engine original Kyosho fuel tank and exhaust
