When you can, would you take more pictures of the trunk area. Specifically
what 'appears' to be hinges or something near the top of the trunk opening. The four round 'grommets' of some type in the seat back are unusual. Perhaps hinges for the trunk were added.
It appears the car was Como Blue originally.
What is the item in the trunk on the right side above the tire? Appears to be a piece of foam?
I do have the Knock off's and the grill and headlights but they are all in a box that I am still trying to locate. When my parent's built their ranch, all of this stuff was moved from their old house to this one and most of the misc. car/performance stuff is still in boxes packed in the storage van. I will locate the stuff but when is the issue.
The piece above the tire in the picture is not foam. There is a hinge at the top of the trunk and there is a piece of hose over the original friction drive attached to the motor. I will take some more detailed pics when I get a chance.
I am seeking some help from anyone on the forum regarding the restoration of a Bimbo Racer... I am seeking information for the 'pinion' for the rack and pinion steering for a Bimbo Racer. Just a sketch with rough dimensions will suffice. I am also seeking rough sketch dimensions for the windshield for a Bimbo Racer.
I wanted to post photos of the completed Bimbo Racer (looks a little different than the Bimbo photos from when I started at the beginning of this thread!). While Bimbo Racer #1 is complete, there are still a few detail items I would like to find (or borrow to replicate) such as the SILA badge for the hood, rubber floor mats and charger.
I have a second Bimbo Racer that is about 90% complete and am also seeking a variety of parts for it as well.
I have run into the same issue... the original Pirelli 'Bambino' tires have been out of production for years and are no longer available. If you have interest, I have a set of new tires that are close to the correct size and are the closest I could locate to substitute for the originals.
