This car was built a few years ago for an early 60's F1 proxy, and as I was set on doing a copy of Dan Gurney's 1962 French GP winner, I was relegated to using the model from Lindberg that was produced in 1965. Like the other  GP cars Lindberg launched in 65, it was OK (at best) , but, really needed a bit of work to make it something you would be proud of.
Lindberg also did a LolaMK1V, Ferrari 156, Lotus 24, Cooper, and a BRM "stackpipe"...(the "stackpipe" is on another tread on this forum)

Anywho........here is where I started.

   

And after a bit of remodelling,...I got this

   

   


The chassis is a simple  Bigsmile single rail design, which is more than adequate, given the slow motors and skinny tyres that the proxy mandated.

   

And on track with a few friends..!!

I was always a Graham Hill fan, and a bit of a BRM fan, however, I was not really a Cox fan, as while they were certainly beautiful, they were not the hot ticket at the commercial tracks, so, my Slotbox did not have any Cox cars in it..................fast forward a few years (actually several) and I began to buy a few Cox cars on epay to build up and put in my display case. Interestingly enough, they are more at home on my "club" track than they ever were on the commercial monsters.

Anyway, I built this Cox BRM 10/15 years ago, (I just re discovered the pictures hidden in a family holiday file) and thought it worth a post. I don't have any chassis pics., but, it is a series II car (can drive), and has had a few other minor tweaks, including a major motor rebuild.....runs great!!......quicker than many current plastic cars.
