Here are the first images of the 1966 Fitch Sprint.

This model will be available in two editions:

AM-FIT-SPR-WG in Willow Green with black roof, and, black and white interior. According to Dave Newell, noted authority on Corvair, this is the first model to ever be offered with a black and white interior. The build is up to 999 at $95. The model will be released at CORSA 2012 in Sturbridge MA and immediately thereafter to pre-orders.

AM-FIT-SPR-TE Tribute Edition in White with blue roof and black interior. This was John Fitch's demonstrator as restored and now owned by the Corvair Preservation Foundation; the car resides on loan to the Saratoga Automobile Museum in Saratoga Springs NY. This model is the Official Model for CORSA 2012 with the Certificate of Authenticity signed by John Fitch. The build is just 66 at $166. The model will be released at CORSA 2012 in Sturbridge MA and immediately thereafter to pre-orders.

I have attached some prototype images and please let me know if you have any questions. The model is available for pre-order from Diecasm at http://www.diecasm.com/servlet/the-Marq ... Categories

Thank you,
Jim

In finished form. I am told that this car with the white and black interior is modeled after a 1 of 1 1:1.
I saw the model in person and its a stunner. Its hard to see how nice the color is in the pictures.

Looms good to me

Are you indulging in one?

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

I wasn't sure but am hot for one after seeing them.
If the stars align I will be adding one.
