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.

Update : I replaced the worn out body with an old original one from back in the days, that is still in excellent condition. In the meantime, the chassis has been completely restored as well. Ready to run again (but carefully).

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.
