Seller Note
Gone are the hidden headlights of the original 1979 version, now replaced with a trio of sculpted pods, (pontoon like), that come to create 3 nicely rounded points, the outer two housing stainless covered pointed to the ground aero coverings. In the center is the original Corvette hood, but now the 3rd centered "pontoon" reaches out to meet the two flanking fenders if you will. Rectangular headlights are squeezed in between the outer can central pontoon and are no longer hidden. A red M is painted on the hood which is stylized to fit onto the pontoon in the center. The back of the front fenders appear much like the original 79 versions and the doors and rockers are believed to be pretty much original '79 design as well. The back of the car is also an artistic expression on steroids with the driver's cowl bump up, and more pods for the rear of this racer. The taillights appear suspiciously as 1963 Caddy tail lights, and the rear roll pan has been modified for a more aero look. Red Speed Racer badging and a stainless-steel round gas filler covering is seen on the trunk lid. 15-inch polished drilled wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped by raised white lettered BFG tires. Noted on the doors a round circle in red with the number 5 in the center in yellow. This denoted the Mach 5 and also pays homage to the Japanese flag.
