I absolutely wanted a 959 in my collection, so I bought a very nice and clean chassis for my restoration project on Ebay. It turned out to be a real basket case. As I dismantled the chassis, 1/3 of the parts were cracked and 1/3 turned out to be Celica parts. So far for the project. Luckily the seller included some more Celica spare parts, which made it possible to make it a runner. Only the body still needs a bit of love.

Judging by your previous Resto’s I’m sure you’ll do a great job on the 959 they are a great car I’ve done several in the past and funnily enough I’m in the middle of one now good luck with it as they say if you can restore a 959 you can restore any Tamiya!!!!

Thanks for the encouraging comment. As a matter of fact, I’m restoring a second one to mint. My best project so far. But not the cheapest.
