Thats for sure a pacesetter 60's sprint car. Its a special one... Thats a sidewinder version. Very few of those left the factory. Awesome find!!!! thats a keeper.

2 million bucks.... :)

seriously, hard to say in that condition. Certainly $600-$800 as is. Once fixed up, well over 2k.

Wow... Did you find this in New Zealand? There's several photos in the Legends sections of similar ones, but not that exact model. Rare bird!

Hmmm no wonder Bents was so keen to buy this off me this morning! :evil: :mrgreen:

I brought this car 2 years ago and has been sitting in my garage ever since, the guy advertised it as a home made car and got it from someone else as it was! I only wanted it to take a mold of the tail section for a 1/5 sprintcar which has yet to be started.

Just as well Bents is a mate and glad for his good fortune! I told him if I put it on here everyone would of said it was a pce of Shyt and worthless... live and learn :?

Bentley,
Mate what a find! I know of 7 running Pacesetters and 1 body that definitely made it to Australia in 1986.......just trying to locate them. That's has been a task. Newspaper adds placed all over the place. No luck so far.
Mine is the #8 on Mike's Legends page, that was found in Texas last year. It has a lot of the same running gear as yours.
