Hi my friends,

I've attached some pictures of the two Simca-Abarth 2000 kindly provided by Chris-Proto-Slot, I've built to reproduce the version of the cars which raced here by Simca do Brasil:

This is the Jayme Silva's car as raced in the Interlagos 12 Hours in 1965 (co-driven by José "Tôco" Martins)





I have not changed anything in the kits except the front tyres for some of lower profile and also lowered a little bit the front of the car. (I also added a pair of extra headlights as the real car) Smile



I loved the engine detail provided in the kit:



You can notice that the Abarth badge in the front was replaced by the Simca do Brasil Simca Tufão street car, for promotional purposes in the races.






These little powerful cars were so ahead of its time that the Equipe Willys brought the A110 and modified them in order to try to give some combat to the Abarths..


The other one pictured below is the José "Tôco" Martins car as he won the 500Km of Interlagos in 1964 co-driven by Cyro Cayres:











Unfortunately these cars were brought by Simca do Brasil as temporary import and due to documentation problems they were seized by customs in 1965 and returned to Europe. Actually 3 Abarths were brought but the third one was converted into a particular model using a V8 Simca Tufão engine and had its rear longer than usual model. It raced but with no sucess..

Hope you liked it. Smile

Merci!

Ricardo Bifulco Very Happy
